Poor mans 4th Axis?


What do you guys think? Would the new long mill system support something like this.



It should work. You would just need to recalculate the x or y axis (whichever you’re using for the rotary) travel depending on the diameter of the piece you’re working on. Or you could set the travel once and scale the x (or y) of the design to match.
I’m working on a design for a cutout in my Longmill table that I can pop out to accommodate a rotary axis.
