Description

The LittleMachineShop.com model 3501 CNC Milling Machine is a complete CNC solution. It's not a conversion or adaptation; this machine is designed and built by the factory as a CNC machine.

The Model 3501 now includes a one-shot lubrication system and an improved mill table that facilitates the use of flood coolant.

Up until now, hobby CNC has required that you make or buy a conversion of a manual milling machine. You had to integrate the mill, ball screws, stepper motors, drivers, power supplies, and breakout boards. Most people don't even know what those things are, much less how to integrate them into a working CNC machine.

The LittleMachineShop.com model 3501 is the perfect mill for the bench top machinist who wants to create parts and not just build a CNC machine. The power supplies and controllers are built into the mill. No extra cabinets, cables, or connectors are required. The model 3501 CNC milling machine even includes a 4th axis driver so you can add a 4th axis rotary table by simply plugging it in.

With powerful NEMA 23 hybrid stepper motors connected by zero backlash jaw couplings to precision-ground ball screws, the model 3501 can achieve positioning accuracy to 0.0005". Not many hobby-grade machines can make a claim like that. It will machine at up to 20 inches per minute and rapid traverse at up to 80 inches per minute.

A 2/3 horsepower closed loop brushless DC spindle motor and synchronized belt drive takes the spindle from 100 to 7000 rpm under full CNC control. A one-shot oiler with flexible shielded lube distribution tubing takes care of daily lubrication with a single press of a lever.

With a work envelope of 10.2" (X-axis) x 4.3" (Y-axis) x 7.1" (Z-axis) the model 3501 has large capabilities in a small machine. And at 190 pounds, you know it is not a toy. The mill table is 15" x 5.38", giving you plenty of room to mount your work and fixtures.

A software controlled receptacle on the back of the machine provides CNC control of an optional mist or flood coolant system.

And we haven’t forgotten your safety. The model 3501 carries the CE marking, the European counterpart to UL listing. A safety E-stop button right on the front and the interlocked spindle shield shut down the mill instantly.

This is the machine only; a computer and tooling must be purchased separately.

The LittleMachineShop.com model 3501 CNC Milling Machine is a version of the SIEG KX1.

*NOTE* We ship machines only to the US and Canada.

Requirements

You need a computer to drive the CNC milling machine. You can get the model 4244 Machine Controller, or you can use your own computer. The computer must meet these minimum requirements:

  • 2-GHz CPU
  • 1 GB memory
  • 20-GB hard drive
  • Windows XP, 7, 8, or 10
  • 32-MB video card
  • USB port (to connect to mill)
  • Front USB port (for USB flash drives for moving files)
  • DVD/CD-ROM drive 

We do not support the use of notebook computers because the power-saving features affect the functioning of Mach3.

Shipping

These machines ship by truck because they are simply too heavy and bulky for UPS Parcel Service. We normally ship truck orders the day after we receive the order. We add the following shipping cost to your order total:

. Local Far West Other Continental US
Delivery to commercial address $59 $115 $145
Delivery to school or secured location $79 $155 $175
Liftgate, additional Incl. $20 $20
Delivery to freight terminal $115 $115 $145
Delivery to residential address (includes liftgate) $79 $175 $195

"Local" refers to the parts of Southern California served by Hollywood Delivery Service.

"Far West" refers to ten western states: CA, OR, WA, AZ, NV, ID, UT, NM, CO, WY.

For delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, or Puerto Rico, we will check with several trucking companies to get the best price and then call for your approval before we ship.

For Canadian shipments we will provide an all-inclusive quotation for shipping, brokerage, and taxes. The brokerage fees are $108. The taxes vary by province. If you have a customs broker or want to self-clear customs please let us know.

We ship machines only to the US and Canada.

The shipping charges shown above cover the cost of shipping the machine and anything else that you purchase with it, including a second (and third) machine, up to 700 pounds total.

A "commercial address" has a company name, a public entrance and posted hours of operation. If you do not have a forklift or loading dock at your place of business, you must add the liftgate fee. If you are running a business at your residence without a public entrance and posted company name and hours of operation it is considered a residence and a not commercial address.

Schools, colleges, universities, university hospitals, military bases, government facilities and other secured locations are charged a limited access fee that is included in the amounts in the chart above.

If you choose Terminal Pickup, and there is not a terminal within 30 miles, we will confirm with you that you still want Terminal Pickup.

Liftgate service is included in the residential delivery fee. The trucking company will call you to schedule the delivery.
