    the shape of the gearbox is awful,but ill make some more when the tables up and running, iv had to run the steppers inboard because of the x axis moving off the table.......

  3. Very envious of the space you have in your workshop and that enormous welder! Looking good, I quite like the weird looking gearbox!! Subscribed.

    good progress. the gearbox might look more in keeping with the machine if it were more angular, like below. Its functional though, who cares, it works.

    managed to get the rack bolted upto the gantry tonight, im going to re design the y axis gearboxes because..theres to much pressure on the rack and pinion gear because the pivot it to close...i can get 3m cut on the y axis..and it looks awful...

    this is the final design for the y axis drive,the motors will be tucked away under the table, it doesnt take alot of spring pressure to hold the pinion into the rack.i can now get full travel accross the whole table...
