harbor freight mini mill upgrades

The next addition to my mill was installing belt drive kit from Little Machine Shop. In order to mount Z-axis scale I had to remove the original torsion-arm counterweight. With mill's head all the way in the upper position locked tighten the cable and pull it just a bit to build the tension where gas springs start to squeeze and will support the head. I used three scales: 12 inch for X, 6 inch for Y and 12 inches for Z what cost me total less than dollars. I was able to achieve the precision of 0. On High position the head speed increased from rpm to rpm. Multimedia Photos Videos.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} To assure that the scale is exactly parallel to the Y-axis table these spacers had to be quite odd shape. The lowest position is where end mill mounted on R8 collet can dig into the table and the highest position is where the head goes just a bit above the column. It paid off with smooth run and almost no lash. These rollers have ball bearings inside which provide low friction rotation. I am very pleased with that product. At the same time I replaced X and Y screws with metric ones. The following pictures should explain how the whole solution works. I weighted the head and it is about 33 lb not including chuck or collet. After using these scales for over a year they are sill working without any problems. It was easy to make a mistake especially when I used "imperial size" end mills. Unlock the head and tun it up and down to few times make sure it is balanced. The only difficult part was making a spacers for Y-scale mounting. Now the only noise besides cutting the metal is a soft whining of brushed motor. So for example 2mm travel would be represented by marks which is one full turn plus 25 marks from the second turn. These two machines are very good when tuned well. All parts are included in the kit and the step-by-step instruction is clear and very logical. This is how you do it with collet. When the mill is not used for a longer time the gas spring "locks in" and and if I move the head upward the gas spring starts expanding with a split second delay. The kit has excellent design and prime quality of machining. I would recommend that upgrade to everybody who is still running their X2 mill with original gearbox. Even my mill was converted to metric units it was still a lot of work to calculate table travel to "turns on knobs". However after using mill for some time I'm sure this is the money and time well spent. And it was not "elegant" for my taste. Metric version is quite weird as one turn on the knob moves the table by 1. It is only happening if the mill is not used for few days or more. Run the cable through the unit - the loose end should exit through the hole between two black screws as shown on the picture 5 4. Mini Mill Modifications There are many power tools used in modelers shop but there are two which I believe are the best bang for bucks: mini lathe and mini mill. Put the whole unit together without the cable 2. It is worth the price. This was the easiest modification ever. When I got my gas springs I noticed that having the same part number they had different model numbers shown on the label. The second improvement important for me was the increase of the head speed. I used two 6-inch travel 30lb force gas springs bought from Enco mounted inside the column and two pulleys. Mounting these scales on the mill was straight forward using original brackets supplied with scales. Hook up one end of the cable to the mill's head 3. The good thing about this solution is that gas springs are mounted with cylinder-up the best mounting for keeping seals lubricated and being hidden inside the column they are protected form saw dust. Without that it is impossible to assembly the whole thing inside the column. Home Projects Mini Mill Modifications. The side of the mill is rough and not even, just as it came form the cast. After conversion there were two major improvements. There is a company Anytime Tools located in California which is also selling on eBay different sizes of DRO scales with remote mounted display. I decided to make my own counterweight solution. There are some solutions with digital scales, that look like modified calipers you will need to read the display mounted on the scale or quite expensive DRO sets with computerized display that were mostly designed for bigger machines SIEG X3 mill or bigger. I measured also the force of this 30lb gas spring. I have not discovered all possibilities of that tool, but it would be not possible to make variable pitch prop hub without that. After I contacted Enco and explained that I need two identical parts, they send me matching gas spring free of charge. For now I start work by moving the head down to "loosen up" gas springs. Using gas spring assured the same force supporting the weight of mill's head along the entire Z-axis travel. The next two additions were more from "convenience" area than "must have". These are the steps how the whole thing is assembled: 1. I will add the same wire to protect the cable from slipping of the upper roller. Installing the kit took 15 minutes. Here are some pictures of the mill equipped with this cheap DRO. Secure the loose end of the cable using two black screws as shown on the picture 9 and picture 10 7. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}There are many power tools used in modelers shop but there are two which I believe are the best bang for bucks: mini lathe and mini mill. For pulleys I bought rollers used in sliding doors from local hardware store. This is obvious. Part for milling must be mounted solid to the table. I realized now how noisy the mill was. After some thinking and calculations I came out with simple, but effective and elegant solution. At Low setting the head speed increased from rpm to rpm. However the one thing I did not like in this solution was that it increased the total height of the machine. And it is elegant. I have researched many options for implementing DRO on this machine. In order to achieve good precision the mill must be mounted very precise, true and as close to the head as possible. It was one of many variation of Sieg 7x12 machines. It was balanced in my mill. That was exactly what I needed. Models Models Projects Techniques. Actually it is the old design from Sieg mini mill which for whatever reasons was discontinued by original manufacturer some time ago. When the mill arrived to my shop it was mostly assembled but I decides to take it apart, clean, lubricate and adjust the way I wanted. The original solution in this mill was not the best anyway as the design shorten the Z-axis travel and it did not counter-balance the head the same in all positions. First I bought mini lathe form Homier online store. First of all the noise from mill's gearbox has been eliminated. Supplied drill chuck is good for drilling, but not precise enough for milling. If I move the head rapidly the cable will loose a tension for a split of second and it is enough to jump of the roller. I decided to use a solution someway between these two. Mount the unit inside the column securing all screws 5. From the beginning to the end the force was between 35 and 40lb. On the first and the second picture you can see a piece of wire that is preventing the cable from slipping of the roller. I would not be able even to think about some projects without these two.
