    I am giving some consideration to doing a CNC conversion to a Harbor Feight X2 mini mill. Has anyone on this list done that? Input would be helpfull

    I did a conversion last year for someone. I think we used the plans from Little Machine Shop. It was easy and there was very little alteration to the mill so it would be possible to go back to manual. We did not do the X,Y ball screws yet. Cash would not allow that but I highly recommend it. Use larger motors than you think you need to overcome the poorly machined ways. Gecko drives if you can afford them.

    What questions do you have specifically?
