I'm a long term lurker but never posted. I am thinking about a CNC lathe conversion. I have an 11 inch Logan sitting idle; partly because it is the economy model w/o a quick change box or a power cross feed. One advantage of converting this lathe may be the simplicity in mounting a ball screw for the long. axis. Also thinking of machining a new cross slide with a flat top and enough length to mount several tools; one form of automatic tool change.
Comments from anyone with experience on converting this model Logan or similar lathe or their thoughts on such a project will be greatly appreciated.
