I'm interested in hearing from other people that have converted manual knee mills (bridgeport type) to CNC.
I want to convert my mill to a 2 axis CNC. I understand the basic components needed, but I'm not sure which components would be best. This is an older mill, so I'm not planning to dump a lot of money into it. Therefore, I figured a stepper system would be the best route. I'm mainly interested in obtaining information on the size / type of steppers and drivers.
The mill has a 9 x 36 table and a bridgeport m-head. It is used on a near-daily basis to mill aluminum, plastic and low carbon steel.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
