    What you running the mill on?
    Looked like a real nice set up for stuff like you are showing.
    Curious about your software and controls set up.
    Congrats

    Tool paths by Mastercam (Fanuc or Haas G-code)
    Control software PCNC "Best-Soft" written by Bill Best (predecessor to BobCad)..MS-DOS based
    4axis ISA bus servo/stepper controller, by Shoreline tools (San Marcos Ca,)
    Servo Drives (3, Copley 20amp) running in current mode
    Table Motors 90oz,in per amp servos direct drive to 10turn zero backlash ball screws, 1k line quad encoders, or (40k counts per inch at 90ft lbs)
    Quill 6 oz in per amp 1:1 belt drive to 10 turn gear reduction, 1k line quad encoder or (40k counts per inch at 6ft lbs)
    mill is about 15yrs old now.

    The Table is DEADLY Accurate, interpolates a circle within 0.0006 at the quadrants, quill not so accurate +/- 0.005 (but repeatable)
    I use it mostly for cylinder head porting and I make my own (or made to order) billet accessory drive brackets for Chevys and Fords

    what started out as a toy, is now a real tool, and I don't know what I would do with out it now.

    ... I don't know what all that means, but it sure sounds cool.. I want one
    I'd agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

    use to do the same (CAD/CAM) myself for 20+yrs....Cadkey and MasterCam back then, for the most part designed and built automated production equipment, Nuclear Reactors(General Atomics), did the CAD/CAM for the "Secure 1000" the x-ray scanner at the airports that piss everyone off this is how I ended up with one at home...needed 1sy,2sy parts made fast and no machine shop wants 1st,2sy work, so I bought a mill I could move around myself and ran my parts at night. 20+yrs of deadlines was enough for me, now it's just for fun
