    New CNC coming soon

    The way your messages read they do not carry as a person that is truly interested but as a person trying to belittle what I am building and come off as tight ass trying to pick it apart. I have been honest and told where the parts come from but I don't have time to give a part by part break down...

    There isn't really a set price, because there are so many options of how the machine can be setup. $4500 is just a number representing a possible combination of parts and to let possible buyers know a possible price. Yes, you can buy a manual cue lathe from Mid America for $1500 or their...

    The way I am planning on doing Internal threads would be with a dremel or rotozip mounted to the quick change tool post. It's more efficient than unbolting the spindle and it can be indexed into the cnc tool table

    A cnc router is a valuable asset in a shop but you absolutely must have a lathe and people don't usually have enough money to purchase both. This setup gives the user the most bang for the buck, it allows a person to build a cue from start to finish. I am not building these for the money and...

    This is what tony is doing, his machine is specifically for tapering and cutting pockets for true points. In order to use a stationary machine tool the motor has to be changed to a standard dc motor that has more torque than a closed loop stepper. The closed loop stepper is for low speed low...

    It is 3 axis, x is diameter z is length and a is head. The spindle has to be adjusted manually. The lathe functions sets this machine apart from other machines. By making it cnc you now have a machine that has digital readouts and the ability to index your tools so that when you change tools...

    New CNC coming soon

    It has an attachment that hooks to a shop vac for collecting dust from the spindle or router. This machine will accommodate either a 65mm cnc spindle or a makita router if a person wants to save a little money. I will get some pictures of it tomorrow.

    Thanks ELBeau, I'm trying to put out the best product I can but keeping cost in mind. I use Chinese parts because they are cost effective and they are all tested before leaving the shop but if someone wants to pay the price for American made parts I can accommodate them.

    the pictures at the top of the post are not of a finished machine, there is much more work to be done and more options to be done that are not shown in the photos. Thanks everyone for your questions and interest.

    Thanks Tony, Doug, and Jason for allowing me to setup your machines and getting me to this point. My name is Shane Jameson and I am building the machine. I am nobody special, I am just a guy that likes to play pool and work on cues. I use to do cnc plasma cutting and I got familiar with working...
