    Can you post pictures? You could retain manual control with a lathe using the MPG16:

    But you need a controller that will handle the lathe operations.

    Wow this is an amazing project. What software did you use to create the CAD drawings. Are the CAD drawings available or for sale?

    Thanks. I use Siemens NX (UG for the old guys). The CAD files are available on my website for download and are in both parasolid and step formats so you can import into any cad.

    I've got an update to the 'manual' Arduino control for this lathe. THREADING!! I've had to move to an Arduino Mega due to storage space required and I've more than doubled the size of the program. At the moment I only have metric external programmed but now that this is coded it will be easy to add inch, internal, and even custom threads. Check out the youtube video below.
    Cheers

    Another update. Added Profile function to the Arduino. Can do anything from simple chamfers to multi point profiles (no radii possible yet).



    Next up will be simple Facing/Cutoff function.
