Did you know that our new Smart-Stop option can fit your existing quill drive? If you own a Bridgeport Eztrak or newer CNC we can fit your quill drive with our Smart-Stop. It is the missing link when your quill drive is used in the dis-connected mode of operation!

Why do you want to purchase from Elrod Machine?

What our customers are telling us

Companies that build CNC controllers want to sell their controllers, and  the hardware that is needed is nothing more than a nuisance to them. Consequently they produce the hardware as cheap as they can.
What you the customer gets is a good controller with mediocre hardware that does not perform as it could.
Their engineering efforts are not mechanical they are used for enhancing the control's operations.
Elrod has been building their own CNC Retrofit Hardware for years, our emphasis when we build a machine or
a CNC Retrofit package is mechanical first then we picked the controller.

  • Our products were built for our own purpose before we offered them for sale.
  • Buy  factory direct no "middle man".
  • EMM uses only premium components in our kits such as steel taper lock pulleys instead of Plain bore pulleys.
  • We support what we sell,  your questions will be answered .
