    Using a CNC Controlled Vertical Mill as a Lathe

    You will find many fine examples of people using their CNC mills as lathes. But finding the details of how they did it is not so common. The part I cut is far from impressive, but this is not all bad. It means I needed to write only a few lines of G-code. Details of the fixturing and code are presented.
