Just CNC router build pics

In case you were getting board, a few pics of the build while I'm here doing research on step motors and other components.

I have no carpentry skills to speak of; but just going to have fun with it anyway. :)

Oh come on, don't be so modest. I saw at least four solid carpentry skills in your unfreaking-believable photos.

Let's see, there was, measure, cut, glue....and what was the other one......? oh, yeah, assemble.

More, more, show us more!

Nice! Are you working off of posted plans or creating something original?

Yeah, but that carpenter you got working with you is doing one fine job of it!

Nice work.

Very little progress for the time period, too many projects going, but hey here is a few more pics; just winging it at this point, did find out those aluminum rails will not hold up so will be grooving them out and dropping in 1/4 x 1/4 stainless steel square stock. That oughta be fun and terrifying. lol

Do have all the drive components as well, did hook them up temporarily for test with mach3, all worked well but was afraid of the twin screws on the gantry so melted some HDPE and made some breakaway blocks with earth magnets and so far so good, 1200 inch pound motors all the way around, if one motor on the gantry stopped or failed I think it would rip the thing apart. :shock:

Went with a heavy duty rack and pinion gear for the Y axis instead of the screw because of whip and liked it but had to put a belted 3:1 reduction pulley in, without it; one rev on the rack and pinion was over 3 inches.

The hole 4" hole where the motors are at will have a thermostatically controlled powerful fan to keep everything cool. the extra threads will be cut off and hand wheels will be added; really all in all to many additions yet to mention and don't want to bore you. :?

If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?
