Hey everyone. First of all I want to thank everyone for all the wisdom, advice, and inspiration I have found on this forum. I am wanting to upgrade my Workbee 1010 to a 1510. It will mostly be used for wood, but I would like it to be strong enough to handle aluminum when I need it to. This thread is to share my current plan for upgrades and to get feedback from the group. For the Y axis, I plan on purchasing 1500mm c-beam and mounting them directly to the mdf top on my stand/bench. On top of those will be 1500mm linear guides. (2X HGH15 Linear Guideway Rail Shaft Rod 300-1500 with 4pcs HGH15CA Block Bearing | eBay) OR (https://www.amazon.com/OrangeA-15-1...+linear+guide&qid=1566390043&s=gateway&sr=8-3 The bearing blocks will be attached to the Y plates with aluminum angle. 8mm leadscrews will be too flimsy so I am going to order 1/2 inch leadscrews from McMaster-Carr and machine my own antibacklash nuts from Delrin. For the X axis I will use the 1000mm c-beam that is currently used as my Y axis. Since I have 2 of them I plan on using both on the X instead of 1 c-beam and 1 20x40. I am hoping this will strengthen my X axis a bit. Both the X and Y will be ran by high torque Nema 23s. (For now i am going to stick with the wheels on the X and Z. I will upgrade these to linear guides in a couple months when I have more funds) In order to accomodate the C-beam support that will replace the 20x40 on the X axis, add strength and rigidity, and increase the height of my Z axis, I will be machining my own Y plates out of 1/2 inch 6061. These will be 2" taller than standard. ( I am hoping that by increasing the plate thickness to 1/2" and replacing the 20x40 with cbeam I will more than compensate for the extra deflection caused by increasing the height of the Y plates. If anyone has any comments, recommendations, or criticism PLEASE comment. Thanks for reading!!
