Mill Turn and some drilling

Post by pbaudio »

I have been using Acorn CNC for a while on our conversion and because we have no CNC lathe its also setup to turn parts.

Thanks Keith,

Its amazing how accurate it works as a lathe and it keeps excellent tolerance.

Do you use CNC12 lathe to generate gcode for the bore and cnc12 mill for the drilling cycles ? Or do you swap axis input?
