CNC Milling Machine FF 500/BL-CNC with Australian 4-axis controller

Enhanced European-made CNC milling machine with variable speed pre-selection from 200 thru 4000rpm, digital speed indicator and high precision results. Double roller bearings mount each of the recirculating ball screws on all three axes, driven by powerful stepper motors. Approximate machine travels are X 290mm, Y 100mm, Z 200mm.

Radius cutting attachment for FD 150/E - PD 230/E - PD 250/E - PD 400

The 24062 mounts on the lathe cross-slide in place of the tool holder, producing convex and concave radius shapes. It is possible to cut convex shapes (spheres) up to diameter 32mm (radius 16mm) or to cut concave radii to a maximum of 19mm.

Our included tool-holder is height adjustable from 30mm to 45mm above the cross-slide, so it suits your FD 150/E or PD 230/E or PD 250/E or PD 400.

A HSS finishing cutter is included, the Form-3 one from our 24530 lathe tool set. You may use other suitable lathe tools if appropriate.

Vertical slide for PD 250/E and PD 400 lathes

At last! Milling capability for Proxxon PD-lathe owners, adding the essential third axis of motion with millimeter slide calibration.

Relativity™ miniature vertical slide to suit Proxxon PD 250/E and PD 400 lathes. Remove the top-slide from your lathe, (one SHCS on the PD 250/E and 2 SHCS on the PD 400) exposing the tee-slotted table of the cross-slide. Our vertical slide comes with two sets of M5 tee nuts and screws to mount it on the Proxxon cross-slide. Fix your milling bit in the lathe chuck (or spindle collet) and you have XYZ milling capability.

Brutal™ parting blade holders and blades are ... BRUTAL!

The Brutal™ parting blade holders and available HSS blades are Relativity™ products. These large holders DO NOT SUIT Proxxon lathes. They are designed for large, industrial, metalworking lathes. Cutting edge height of the range covers 19mm, 22mm, 30mm, depending on blade overhang, due to a holder-induced 1-degree top rake. Be sure to use a height adjustable toolpost, to perfect the cutting edge height.
