looks great. Time to make some saw dust.
I ran it yesterday. Need to get some proper video. Machined Acrylic and Aluminum with it. Still trying to get the settings right for aluminum.
Much less chatter and the cuts are more precise than the plywood mill.
My thread rod drive acrylic mill cuts more accurately but is a lot slower.
I still have to make the spoil board better with more support on the bottom and I need more clamp holes but yeah its ready to go out to the customer on the 18th delivery date.
Now I need one for myself... After I get the CNC plasma done for someone else...
Water Jet parts for CNC plasma table next build.
Same method using water jet aluminum parts, table base is framing used to make Japanese car assembly lines.
yes. it is quite strong. The manufacturer made solidworks simulation on it and then made it. Pretty cool I just showed up at their office, gave him dimensions, a little while later it was drawn and price was presented. I paid, couple days later it was delivered to my door.
Same company that makes my extrusions makes this and they even have connectors between the tubing and profile although only for 30mm sixes and above. I got some 3d printed cross connectors to put in there as insurance.
The water table is 4x4 inch square steel tubing, 60mm deep water bed that is a separate structure that nests inside this.
I think next machine after this I will try that commercial shelf racking. Again made by the same manufacturer. I would have used it now but the cross pieces only come in 2 and 4 foot lengths. It will make a pretty cool stand. Just slide in the slots, and put some lasered sheet metal sides on it weld on with bolts. Will look like the upper grade china machines.
Goal is to match the China prices for assembled CNC machines in the Philippines without the excessive import costs associated with shipping and customs.
I am opening a store next month for my routers, 3d printers, mini mills and cnc plasma tables along with accessories
pretty cool for sure.
the one thing the cracks me up is the craftsman tool box in the background didn't know sears was over there
I am American.. I imported a entire shop of equipment here.
