Enco CNC Conversion


I have come to a point where I really want to do some serious CNC work and two of the projects require more table space than I have on the MK machine.

Particulars are:

I sourced a set of ball screws that are supposed to work with my Bridgeport clone milling machine. Set of three, Knee, X axis and Y axis cost $1200 dropped on my desk at work.

I sourced a 16mm, 250mm long ball screw kit from eBay for $36.  Includes thrust bearing block, end support bearing block and the ball screw itself.  The mounting block for the movable part of the system is not being used and I am making my own.
