Conversion Kits

Conversion Kits for mini lathes and mini mills - LittleMachineShop.com

LittleMachineShop.com has bed extension kits for mini lathes, air spring kits for mini mills and more. Metric threading kits let you turn metric threads on your mini lathe. All of our conversion kits come with complete step-by-step instructions.

2258   Air Spring Conversion Kit

  • Converts torsion spring mini mills to air spring
  • Allows travel to the top of the column
  • Provides better support for the mill head
Convert torsion spring mini mills to air spring. Most mini mills use a torsion spring mounted on the side of the column to support the head. This air spring conversion kit provides all the parts required to change to a vertical air spring that mounts inside and above the column. With the air spring installed, you can move the mill head up until the top of the casting is almost flush with the top of the column. You can move it down until it almost contacts the adjustable Z-axis stop set in its lowest position. Besides all the parts required to mount the air spring, this kit also includes a longer Z-axis rack so you can take advantage of the longer head motion. This air spring has about 35 pounds of force. This is not enough to totally support the head, but it is a heck of a lot more support than the torsion arm provides.

4005   Air Spring Conversion Kit, HiTorque Mini Mills

  • Better support for the mill head
  • Greater Z-axis travel with improved Z-axis upper limit

Convert torsion spring HiTorque Mini Mills to air spring. Mini mills use a torsion spring mounted on the side of the column to support the head. This air spring conversion kit for mini mills provides all the parts required to change to a vertical gas strut that mounts inside and above the column. With the air spring and Z-axis limit installed, you can move the mill head up until the top of the casting is flush with the top of the column. You can move it down until it contacts the adjustable Z-axis stop set in its lowest position. Besides all the parts required to mount the air spring, this air spring conversion kit for mini mills also includes a longer Z-axis rack so you can take advantage of the longer head motion. This air spring has about 35 pounds of force. This about enough to support the head, and it is a heck of a lot more support than the torsion arm provides.

Do not buy this milling machine upgrade kit if you have a HiTorque Mini Mill. Most or all of these features are already included on the HiTorque mills. This mini mill kit provides an easy-to-install alternative to the noisy and fragile factory-installed gears that drive the spindle on the machine. The kit includes one belt. Change speeds without any tools. Simply remove the guard, loosen the lever locks and move the belt from one pair of pulleys to the other. Low speed range is 0-1700 RPM. High speed range is 0-4300 RPM. This belt drive fits the following mills: Grizzly G0516 Lathe Mill Combo Cummins 7877 Mini Mil Grizzly G8689 Mini Milling Machine Harbor Freight 44991 Central Machinery Mini Mill/Drill Hare & Forbes HM-10 Mini Mill Drill Homier 03947 Speedway Mini Mill Micro-Mark 82573 MicroLux Milling Machine The small pulley has a 9 mm bore with a 3 mm keyway. The large pulley has a 30 mm bore with a 5 mm keyway. If your shafts don't match these values, then this belt drive will not fit your mill. Convert torsion spring mini mills to air spring. This mini mill kit provides all the parts required to change to a vertical air spring that mounts inside and above the column. With the air spring installed, you can move the mill head up until the top of the casting is almost flush with the top of the column. You can move it down until it almost contacts the adjustable Z-axis stop set in its lowest position. This air spring has about 35 pounds of force. This is not enough to totally support the head, but it is a heck of a lot more support than the torsion arm provides.
