This lathe dimensions are 63" X 17" X 44" (L X D X H).
The plan is to automate (hack) this manual Long Bed Lathe to an automatic one for machining extremely hard materials (that can abrade the guide rail mechanism of existing Engine Lathe) using Linear Actuators, CPUs, Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) and Servos.
The VFD and Servos will also require 3 Phase 208/480 V AC power.
VHS woodworking shop seems to have run out of space. The two spaces that I feel can be used are:
(1) In between the Taig CNC, Sherline (PCB) CNC and Project Storage Rack
(2) The corner Cards Arcade game, Lounge-TV-Microwave and the Robotic arm.
This may need rearrangement (stacking) of HAM Radio equipment, Electronics components storage, Card Arcade game, Robot Arm, etc.
Suggestions for locating this lathe are welcome!
