I probably could mill a pcb with a CNC conversion but I'm not a fan of milled PCBs. With AP and a heated bath, etching is a snap.Bob Scott wrote:Philba! I looked up your bargain milling/lathing tools:
Can you mill the copper off a PCB with that thing? No etching?
I see there are CNC upgrade kits for it including software and computer if you need it.
I'm not sure I want to CNC convert the sherline as it isn't that powerful. Also, it has a very small chuck (1/4", iirc) so the choice of mill ends is limited. When I move up to a bigger machine (still small), I'll sell the sherline setup - I think I could get enough to pay for the CNC conversion.
