I though I saw a little while back a post on converting a manual lathe to cnc.Tried a search with no luck.So here goes:
I have a small 11" lathe that has no trail stock (long story)anyway I use it to make small plastic and teflon parts ~100 per month.
I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to convert this machine to CNC.
I do not need to thread on this machine or hold close tolerances. +/- 0.005" is ok
Plans,books etc that may help would be greatly appreciated.
It's going to be a winter project during the slow days in the shop
