The supplied leadscrews are very good for manual machining and will also work well as a CNC mill. However, ballscrews are more accurate and are designed to have less backlash than a leadscrew is capable of maintaining. Adding the three ballscrews to the machine costs about $200 dollars.

    2018-6-29 · Anyone with experience of converting a WM18 mill to CNC know if its needs ballscrews? I have got a quote for a conversion kit but it seems they are suggesting I just use the existing lead screws. Does it not require ballscrews due to the backlash? Cheers.

    2020-9-4 · Converting a manual mill to a cnc is usually not worthwhile due to needing to change to ballscrews, etc. Mach 3 has a good following while Centroid has diy conversions to real industrial controls. Masso is another interesting controller but isn't fully baked in my opinion. If the mill is for doing projects, get one ready to go.

In general, it is recommended that industrial lathes should be C3-C5, which means zero backlash, and accuracy of about 0.001mm. That degree of accuracy is quite expensive, costing thousands of dollars per screw, and only attainable in
