Abene VHF-3 - Intro
In December 2007 I couldn't resist any
more. I found a 1986 Abene VHF-3 previously converted to CNC but without
control. I made the previous owner an offer and got it at what I believe
was a fair price. Here's a photo of it "as advertised".
A little data on the machine:
Table size: 1200 X 320
with 4 T-slots
Travel: 750 X 275 X 500
(X, Y, Z)
Spindle: 12 speed, 6HP,
The goal is/was to convert it to Mach3 and in
the following pages I will try to document the project as I go along.
