Centroid Acorn CNC conversion from Masso CNC.
And a special thanks to Tom, who was a great support. Thanks.
I suffered an expensive and almost catastrophic , system failure on my relatively new Sherline Mill and Lathe CNC package bought during the first lockdown in the UK.
I have to take sole responsibility for the damage suffered to the main control board running MASSO software. Whilst changing over fro the milling machine to the lathe I heard a great bang and spoke coming from the CNC box.
I briefly reported on the problem earlier in the year.
However I am hoping this post has a better outcome even if my wallet took a big hit. Karl, from Sherline based in the USA, put me in touch with Tom who had a set of CNC because he was taking a diffrent approach and installing a Centroid Acorn system.
Because the shipping and import taxes to the UK from the USA I asked Tom what he was replacing his with? That turned out to be the company Centroid and their Acorn board. There is much to tell regarding the journey I undertook and additional expense,
However, thats to come. I’ve a lot of video and photos that need editing and running but email me if you have a specific question. My email is email@example.com.
The measurement is a true reflection of the accuracy available once you set it up right
