    Default Excited about my other hobby!

    I just ordered the equipment I need to turn my mini lathe into a CNC operated lathe! If you don't know what that means, i can now operated it with a computer. Should be a lot of fun to use, and amazingly I got everything I needed including the controller for $100.

    I like to make model engines in my spare time. Some day, probably once I retire, I'd like to try to make a watch. Here's a picture of my lathe in its current state.

    Very neat. My Dad is a Tool and Die maker, he does everything old school with the drafting table-but always said he wanted to learn CNC. He recently built 2 big machines for a manufacturing company and is working on a 3rd doing it "old school".

    There something to be said about doing things the old school way. At my job I run both manual and cnc machines. Learning how to properly do things on the manual can teach you a lot about setting up a CNC.

    Here is something I made about a year and a half ago. I found the blueprints online and machined most of the parts on manual machines. The aluminum bases were made on a CNC mill along with the link arm.
