    For some time I have been working on a CNC conversion of the Harbor Freight 8x12 lathe. I now have it working and have run a few useful parts on it. I took it to the CNC workshop in Ann Arbor Michigan a couple weeks ago.

    I finally managed to write up some web pages about it, so if you are interested see http://plsntcov.8m.com/CNClathe/CNClathe1.html

    Here is a photo of the completed machine
