Just started the conversion on my mill/drill. I bought this one in the UK its badged as a SIP but looks the same as the one I bought from Wholesale tool in MA a few years back.
Most of it seems to be reasonably straight forward my only concern is fitting the stepper/belt assembly on the head stock. Not sure if I should sink it in the head stock or mount it on the side of the stock. Any ideas??
the one thing I am sure about is scrapping the god awful worm n wheel down feed in favour of using the same lead screw as the CNC for hand work. again any thougts on this idea??

Kind regards Kevin
