Lathe for shapeoko

Has anyone setup a lathe to spin on a shapeoko?
I’m looking to create spindles and turn them slowly with a drill and let the router cut the profile.

Hi @DoorNB,

Probably not what you have in mind but I did setup a (mini)lathe literally “on” a shapeoko3

Awkward and a little bit of an involved process (this was meant as a fun experiment rather than anything serious) but…it works

Full discussion here

Other folks here have actually wired a 4th rotary axis they can control (not with the stock electronics though)


Close. I am looking to mount the drill outside on the shapeoko and bring in the material underneath the support rails. The stock I am running is 30” long.
