    Hi,

    top-maschinen.de in Germany has the following prices in Euro:

    X-axis 296 (BF20) or 320 (BF20L)
    Y-axis 275
    Z-axis 320
    Mounts for all three axis 46

    So total is ca € 960 plus shipping. No machining needed, just put them in there

    Regards Björn

    Not really sure, the Optimum website doesn't say. I just wanted a finsihed solution to get it up and running.

    Remember that the dollar is not so high in value at the moment. It's at the lowest value compared to SEK since 1992, I guess I should buy stuff from the US

    Regards Björn

    Strange it was working; go to http://www.motioncontrolproducts.co.uk/ and look for the link to ballscrews.

    Wow Jan. That is some great work. I just have a few questions:

    1. How complete is your parts list? I'm trying to price out the conversion so I can do it myself.
    2. Is it possible to get some dimensions and pictures for the parts you've made? I'm a real noob at this, so I could use lots of help.
    3. Where did you get your breakout board, power supply, and controller? I couldn't find them on the homeshop website.

    Thanks for the great pictures. They're very inspiring. Please keep us updated.

    Hi Christian,

    Glad you like it

    1. The list should be complete, but does not include end-machining of ballscrews, materials for motor mounts and some bearings and screws. I have also bought a Logitrol pendant, a SmoothStepper, and a spindle interface from CNC4PC, but that is more conveniant than essential.
    2. We never made drawings other than some sketches. I will try to help you. Just ask.
    3. HomeshopCNC.com, but it was shipped from another location if I remember correct. Maybe he will get it for you if you send him a request.

    I think Syil make some conversion kits that will fit this mill. May be cheaper than to buy all the parts.

    You need to have access to a large mill, and a lathe to do the conversion with the parts I have chosen.

    Jan
