AMA-16 Mill CNC Conversion

A while ago I decided to convert my AMA-16 milling machine to cnc. For this machine I bought some stepper drivers to save the time of building them myself. I have mounted these drivers together with some power supplies and relays in a control box. Unfortunately I have not made many pictures during the build process.

Bottom side vent openings:

There are 3 ventilation openings on top. I protected these with air filters to keep out the dust.

 

The stepper motors are connected to the control box via speakon connectors:

I have mounted a touch-screen to the front of the control box.
