|Thread: getting a mill over to Ireland|
Michael from Kildare here.
I bought a Optimum bf 20l mill from Millenium machinery in Athlone , €2000 , and it is a great little mill , I also purchased the Allendale Dro kit for a mill although €500 + it is worth it
I also have a Myford Super 7 with the Allendale Dro and a drive converter which is ideal for the hobby
I buy in all types of machinery from the UK and a pallet from inside Manchester/Birmingham/Bristol is about €200
The other side of that line is twice that

|Thread: Emco compact 5 cnc lathe with Welturn|
All the electrics at the back are torn out and damaged and the front buttons panel is in a bad way.
I was hoping to fit new steppers through an appropriate motherboard and power supply through a suitable pc / laptop
I hope this is possible
|Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately due to a lot of damage and missing parts for the Emco I need a lot of new bits so I want to do it as a cnc. Any help sourcing the parts is greatly appreciated.|
