Newbie from RSA,
I know you have been asked these questions before, but I need some serious help as I am no expert in this field. I am looking to build a mini precision lathe using servo motors. Z axis 5", x axis 10", gang type lathe, max turning dia 5/8", controlling spindle speeds etc. I have researched on what to use but have only confused myself as there is so many options. On the mechanical side I do not have any problems, but what servo motors, controllers, pc software etc should I use. I would like to maintain 0.0005" accuracy. I will be using precision parts to build the lathe.
Any help will be appreciated.
