    If the CNC stuff is still functional, why convert it back to manual? ... it looks like the manual controls are still there.

    Best of both worlds
    Cheers.

    Default Welcome to the Maho Club...

    Hi Peter,

    I have an early 70's Maho MH700 manual machine.

    See link below.https://www.woodworkforums.com/showthread.php?t=179937

    Your
    MH400 looks like a toy in comparison to the bulk of the MH700. I have only recently got mine powered up after having it in storage. I have found the Maho it to be a very nice piece of Engineering and a pleasure to use.

    What spindle taper does the MH400 use?

    Cheers Piers

    Hi Piers.
    your is very nice and big . i wouldn't buy this MH400 if it big as your
    my shed already full and i'm still finding the place for this Maho mill .
    i think the taper spindle on this one is the NT40 but i haven't check it carefully yet to be sure.
    cheers
    Peter

    Good score. I would love to have one.I would say that it would work as a manual machine as it has handwheels on it. It looks like it has a early heidenhein controller on it, maybe a TNC155. Does the DRO use glass scales or encoders on the screws?

    I think so too.
    the control is heidenhein 135 . the DRO have glass scales.

    Not being a Mayo Mill man myself, not surprisingly I didn't understand much of the above post!!! So, what does such a mill do, in non-technical terms? Much appreciated

    Books have been written on that. However, in simple terms a mill uses a rotary cutter to remove material (typically metal) from a work piece. It has a table that can be positioned accurately that the work piece is secured to and that moves relative to the cutter to do the cutting. The head of a mill varies according to maker but has a spindle that the cutter mounts in that is driven by some means (direct drive, belts, gears etc). If you are familiar with a wood router, it performs a similar task.
