    Default Matt's Grizzly G0602 CNC Conversion

    I will use this thread to document the progress of my Grizzly G0602 CNC conversion. I picked up the lathe a couple of years ago from the Grizzly tent sale in Washington for $500.

    Here are the main components of the conversion which I will be using:

    1. A cnc kit provided by Billy from bdtools on Ebay.

    2. I purchased the motors, drivers and boards from Automation Technology (Kelling).

    Qty 2 KL-5056D Digital Bipolar Stepper motor driver

    Qty 2 NEMA23 570 oz/in 5A 3/8 shaft dual shaft stepper motors

    Qty 3 C34KL Motor Driver to RJ45 Breakout board

    Qty 1 C35 Quick Setup Breakout board

    3. I have an existing C6 variable speed control board and C3 Index pulse card.

    4. I have an existing 5V 2A power supply and 12V 2A power supply. I will need a 48V 10A power supply to drive the steppers.

    5. I have a WEG 1hp 1750 RPM 3 phase motor that will be driven by a TECO 2 HP VFD.

    Here is an existing photo before the conversion.

    Here are some photos Billy sent me of the kit. My kit shipped a day or two ago.

    Moved the lathe to the bench today. I forget how heavy the lathe is. I just cant seem to pick it up with two people. Used an engine hoist and some straps to move it. Now I will have good front and rear access for wiring.

    I'm excited to follow this build! Take lots of pics.

    Also, nice score on the lathe purchase at the tent sale.

    I like to have sofa's to do CAD CAM stuff from, actually there are two of them. I think they are both sleepers. Compressed air does wonders to blow the chips off em. It sucks to have to go into the house just to make a few gcode changes.

    Is that a Novakon mill in the back of the photo?

    If so, how do you like it?

    I have a Novakon Torus Pro/Servo on its way, that I hope will be arriving next week....

    25"X x 15"Y x 12"Z travels, 500 IPM with AC servos, 6000 RPM Spindle. It will get a full enclosure, PDB and 12-tool ATC very soon after it arrives.

    Regards,
    Ray L.
