    Lovely remix of my old design (openhardwarecoza was my profile before I joined OB hehe!)
    Love the water table!

    Keep us posted - would love more pics and videos when it is in action.

    Sadly years ago I had to abandon that build when the guy I was building it with got into some family strife and it never got finished, so this is bitter sweet :)

    Thanks Peter ,
    Your original design is very good. In building the table I keep coming across different ideas to implement in the table. More pics and material lists will be added in the future.

    Looking great! Can't wait to see how this turns out for you. If you end up being happy with it, i would like to build one myself. Best of luck on your build and keep adding updates!! Would love to see more pictures as you progress.

    Cheers!

    I do have just one question, what is the working/cutting size of your table?
    Thanks

    With that design it should scale well to any sane size - just adapt the steel lengths accordingly, add extra bracing as needed

    I have switched from Mach 4 to LinuxCNC. I have recieved my Messa 7i76e and my THCAD boards. I was having problems with the hardware in Mach 4. I will set up the new system shortly and take it for a test drive.
    I also have a robot3t ohmic sensor arriving , hopefully , soon.
