      Started the planning phase of my new build.

      Parts on order.

      The original phlat used a lower roller covered in anti skid tape and two more pressure rollers above. My plan is to use a 3/4" chrome shaft on bottom with 12 roller blade wheels, suspended on three pillow block bearings driven by two 450oz/in Nema 23 steppers. Pressure will be provided by an upper chrome shaft also on bearings (untitled 359 photo). The whole thing will be controlled by my fav combination, Arduino Uno, grbl cnc shield and 4 x TB6600 drivers running on a 24V platform. Everything will hopefully fit in a MDF housing 16" wide x 66" long x 24" high.
