My most recent search finally led me to the DIY world.
Some of these are good machines in that they are robust however I wanted and needed a smaller version.
I had an old spare Sherline motor/spindle assem. and realized that this was a good starting point.
One of the things that I do not like about any of the available devices out there is the height; they are all a mile high and require a lot of space for the "once a year usage they get.
I wanted to design and make a very low profile machine.
This is the system at full up, I have exactly 1" stroke.
