A project log for Converting a G4003G lathe to CNC

watch as we break a perfectly good manual lathe jarek319: "you can’t tune “fundamentally flawed” out of a system."

unpacked and spaced out the legs

started to install the panel between the legs.... slightly off holes


brackets and panel

time to install

noticed there was too much oil in the headstock, and cross which could lead to issues later. so emptied some out

that's better,, we can use the extra oil on the g0704 ways now.

and mounted

check the oil levels

break it in, and do a test cut in steel. obviously we didn't empty out enough oil

aluminum to test to see if any visible harmonics etc , all good

All installed and ready to start the CNC planning
