Hi folks!
I'm an engineer by trade with hobbyist interests in CNC manufacturing of all forms, but specifically radio controlled model aircraft.

I have a CNC Mill, CNC Lathe, 3D printer(s), event a prototype CNC carbon fibre braiding machine!

I also have a YouTube Channel that I try to keep up to date with my endeavours at:-

www.YouTube.com/CNCModellerUK

Here's looking forward to some interesting conversations in the future!

Cheers
Barry M

Welcome to the forum Barry, hope you enjoy your stay:beer:
Just been viewing your power drawbar build on youtube, I hope there's a part 2 ! My first cnc was also a Novamill, that's where I got the bug ! but alas it was just too small (even after I fitted the 7 inch riser block) and I sold it on and built a bigger one:victorious:

Hi Needlework!
The power drawbar upgrade was finished ages ago and like many of my projects I have plenty of raw footage to edit, alas I keep getting distracted by playing in the workshop :-).

I also have a working 3d printed abs plastic prototype for a reverse engineered tool change carousel, and loads of footage that I need to post! Unfortunately it's too flexible to work reliably but a CNC machined aluminium version should work a treat, when I get round to it.

I'm only interested in small parts so I'm hoping that the novamill will last me a long time.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Cheers
Barry M

Hi Barry

Welcome to the forum. I was looking into power draw bars for a homemade spindle some time back. On the back burner for the foreseeable future but will check out your channel for info.
