The aim is to design a CNC mini lathe which can be constructed from 3D printed parts, parts cut on a 300x500mm CO2 laser, and off the shelf drive components. One could technically buy a cheap 3D printer with 8mm linear rails then use it to print a lathe frame. Then convert the 3D printer to a lathe. My end goal is to be able to lathe magic wands. And probably lots of other stuff.
