DIY CNC Turret Lathe!

Let’s make a DIY CNC Lathe!

Here’s the scoop: We want to machine magnetic, single-sized hole PLUGS for our fixture plates but they need to be cost effective! The idea is to make a dedicated machine that can crank these out! We machined the bedrails and headstock, which we’ll cover today. The question is: Is this going to work? This is JUST the beginning! Stay tuned to find out how it TURNS out (pun intended). The full Fusion 360 model is available–we welcome your feedback!
