Hello

I'm living in the Netherlands and I want to convert my X3 Mill to CNC
This is a super modell with tilting head and digital RPM, see also

My question know is CNC fusion kit4 suitable for the super X3 or have I to do some modifications?

Thanks ahead and best regards from the netherlands (Holland)

Greetings
Rolf

Hello Rolf, yes the Fusion X3 kits will work with the Super X3 just fine, with no modifications.

Working with a Grizzly G0619, does the black sheet metal plate behind the z-axis (the thing the circuit board is mounted to) need to be shortened? Mine comes all the way down and covers the entire z-axis, including the bevel gears.

Also does the CNCFusion gas strut work with the Super X3? Do you have any photos of how this is mounted?

Thanks.

here is a link to the photos of the gas spring installed.

Gas Spring pics

A couple users have reported that on the newest super X3's they did have to clip some sheet metal out of the inside of the black electronic housing. In all the photos on cncfusion.com the sheet metal was not modified or cut to install the kit.

cheers,
Michael

Is it possible to mount the gas spring inside the rear compartment? IIRC, that was how Sieg did it when they used to ship them with a gas spring. I will eventually take out the speed control board when I convert my X3 to run on VFD.

you can physically get it inside the column, but it can be a pain. we also have problems with the gas spring rubbing on the cross beam where the ballnut goes.

cheers,
Michael
