Hello folks, I recently acquired an Emcoturn 120p lathe. It's in pretty good shape. It came with tooling, chucks and all the manuals , as well as instruction materials for learning Gcode and such. I bought it for a very good low price.
The one part that is missing is the transformer to step it down to 380 volts. Being that i did get it for a low price, i was thinking of maybe doing a conversion. I do have a nice 4hp inverter ready motor laying around and thought this would be a good opportunity to go with modern electronics.
Has anyone converted one of these lathes???? What servo/stepper motors were used??? etc., etc.
