OptiMill MB4 CNC conversion (part 1) – Code Make Share

The big advantage of the BF30 is that there is an official CNC conversion kit available. However, it is quite expensive, particularly when also buying the optional ballscrews (and a CNC mill without ballscrews is hardly worth doing). So I decided to go with the bigger machine, and do the conversion myself. The MB4 is also the less expensive machine, another plus. Delivery and setup. The ...

Isel ballscrews were available in the following pitches; 2.5mm, 4mm,5mm, 10mm and 20mm. Shaft diameters were available in 16mm and 25mm.
