condition: new
make / manufacturer: Sieg
model name / number: X2D
I am selling my Sieg X2D milling machine / mini mill that I have converted to CNC. The mill is brand new. I bought it specifically to convert to Computer Control. The X2D has the larger table and a solid mounted column for better rigidity. It is similar in style to the Grizzly mini mill or the Harbor Freight mini mill - the difference is my mill has the larger table (work area) and the non-tilting column.

I upgraded the drive system from 2 speed gears to a 2 speed belt system for quieter operation and higher speeds in either speed range. I also added a 2" riser block to the column for more Z Axis travel. It has a larger table and a fixed column that doesn't tilt which gives it a lot more rigidity. It has an R8 spindle which uses readily available tooling.

I machined all the pieces from 6061 Aluminum using the Heavy Metal/CNC Fusion CNC Conversion Kit as the model to copy. The electronics are from Sainsmart - CNC 4-Axis Kit with ST-4045 Motor Driver, USB Controller Card, Nema 23 Stepper Motors and 36V Power Supply. The USB Controller Card lets you use any Windows computer or laptop with a USB port.

I clearanced the center section of the base which allows for more Y Axis travel. Table travel dimensions are X - 12", Y - 5.875, Z - 11". The whole thing is controlled by Mach3.

The package comes with everything the mill came with new. It will also include a computer (no monitor) to run the machine with a trial version of Mach3 (a full license is $175 from ArtSoft).

The machine is new as are all the components I used to convert to CNC, ready to start working for you.

I also have a full enclosure on wheels available for another $250.
