    Default Convert Sieg lathe to CNC

    I want a lathe, I'm actually totally convinced that I need one.

    I could do with a Sieg C3, but I could also fit the C6b without trouble and both would be within my budget. I want to CNC it myself, and I've been looking for pictures and inspiration from others.

    Trouble is that I can't find many C6(b) conversions around. I find many started build logs, but few where one can see the final result.

    So if any of you have a build log or pictures of your finished conversion, I'd appreciate if you would share it with me.

    The C6 is limited by the 3/4 inch spindle bore. The Grizzly G0602, or one of its Weiss cousins would be a superior choice IMO.

    I agree with CR. Get the bigger machine if you have space.
