I have been lurking on the forum for a few days trying to get an idea for suitable donor machines, parts, costs etc. Having looked at what is available in the UK I intend to buy new a Warco GH Universal and convert to 3 axis CNC(Mach3/VisualMill). I think, due to the size and especially the Z axis load I will go for servos over steppers. With that in mind I like the look of the Gecko kit G320 or G340 (have'nt sussed the differences yet).
The main reason for the post is to see if anyone has converted this machine that I can share information with, I believe that this machine goes under quite a few other names and I think it is the one Industrial Hobbies use.
I will obviously require quite a few other parts and would be interested in finding UK suppliers of Ball Screws, Servos, PSU's, Toothed belt drives etc.
Looking forward to participating in the forum and once I have a clear plan and taken delivery of the GH Universal I will start a build log.
