4th and 5th CNC Axis

I’m back with a new CNC project.

This is a small Tilting rotary table to add a 4th and 5th axis to a CNC mill.

Motors and Belts are small, but that was what I’ve at home (recycle from old printers).

You can find the Fusion360 project with BOM here:


I’ve finish cutting parts and start to assembly the table

the main shaft and table are missing because I need a lathe (it’s in my shopping list)

Yesterday arrived the gears and belts so I make some tests connecting it to my 3dprinter board, that you can see here:



hope you will enjoy it.

as a Service Manager I’m not so deep into the processes to redesign them,
my Operation Managers have a too narrow vision to change their processes keeping the whole three Projects Service working


Checkmate and now?
