Hello and thank you in advance for your help.
I am considering buying a cnc lathe in order to start making camshaft cores. I only need to make one type. About 23 inches long from tool steel bar.
the shop that used to make them for me would do one side and then turn them around
My question is, do you guys think a bridgeport ROMI CNC ez path could get something like this done?
What about a HAAS TL1 ?
I am looking for any suggestions as to what kind of machine I should be looking at getting to attempt to turn full bar into a core.
18 x 2 1/2 bar was used before to do these cores.
My current shop that used to make these is going out of business soon so I am trying to figure out what I need to do because finding another shop to do this work is not really an option at this point.
I don't want to have to spend more than 20k, it is possible? Any advice is appreciated.
thank you very much
