Tell us about yourself!
Jesus, dude. You are my new hero. I would have had a tough time getting that done right and I've got a CNC mill in my garage. Color me thoroughly impressed.
Yeah, but you spent more time making the jigs than you did on the cutting, I bet!Still. Doing it with hand tools? That's damned impressive no matter what jigs you had.
Not sure if you're still looking for button control on this, Bob, but the link below will give you pretty much everything you need. You'll probably have to tweak the values of readkey a little bit, but it worked just fine for me once I figured out the right values there.(mine, incidentally, were left, 504; right, 0; up, 143; down, 328; select, 741; and null (no key pressed) was 1023. I haven't checked the other board that I got yet to see if it's the same values, but I suspect that each board will be slightly different based on tolerances in the values of the resistors used.)https://codegists.com/code/arduino-lcd-keypad-shie...

Okay, nice. Your mill was sold by Grizzly, but it's one of the more common benchtop mills out there. One of the earliest - possibly the original, I don't know - of that type was called the RF-30, made by a Taiwanese company called Rong-Fu. Look around on Google for Rong-Fu RF-30 CNC conversion kit. You'll find plenty of stuff available to buy off the shelf, or you can find the plans and make the mechanical parts yourself and buy all the electronics.It's really a pretty easy conversion to do.
If you have a mill already, you do NOT want to do it this way. The cuttin forces that you're going to see are going to be far, far more substantial and you'll stall out these drivers and motors the very instant the first flute of a cutter touches metal. What model grizzly do you have? There are conversion kits and detailed DIY plans available for almost any Grizzly product you're likely to ever buy.
