Series 3 Upgrades are here!
Series 3 Upgrade kits for PCNC 1100 mills are now available for sale. The kits include 3 polyphase motors, 3 Leadshine microstepping drivers, machine control card, and busboard. Make sure to select the correct kit for your serial number -machines numbered 1-999 require additional mounting brackets. and should choose PN 32010. If your mill has serial number 1000 or greater, choose PN31999. We’ve also made the motors and drives available as a separate kit for those who want to integrate with other equipment, although those kits don’t qualify for the same pricing as the upgrade kits.

And another new product…
Sprung 5C Collets
Sprung 5C collets open up just a bit beyond nominal ID when uncompressed. Why? Because it can be really hard to load/unload bar stock when the uncompressed collet IDs are size-on, especially if your trying to use them with automatic collet closers, etc. Trouble is, its really hard to find affordable 5C collets that are also sprung – if you need one, you’re only options are premium choices with premium prices.
Not anymore. We now have sprung 5C collets available for sale that don’t cost an arm an a leg. Not premium, but good quality collets that are appropriate for the majority of home and small job shop lathe work.
