      My completed Mini Mill build.

      Purchased a Mini Mill kit as a learning tool to accompany my upcoming Workbee build. My lovely wife and I spent a few nights putting it together after the kids went to sleep.

      Photo 1 - Our very first X-Axis linear actuator!

      Photo 2 - My wife & I just after the birth of out first OpenBuilds child
      (Yes I do look exhausted - it was a long day even before we touched the build)

      Photo 3 - The completed build
      (Yes there was a mess on the table)

      So - Lessons learned and observations:

      • Watch the assembly video ... a few times beforehand (huge help)
      • Do not put dinner in the oven as you send your wife to the store to buy silicon spray (she made a detour and it took over an hour)
  • Loading...
