Hi HiltonSteve - Great build - I'm going to be using 80x40 extrusions on my build. How thick are the ally tool plates supporting the 80x40 sides on your build?
If you pm me your email i will send you the drawing if you want it.
Hi Steve haven't posted in a long time as my computer is as sick as a skegness donkey and a bit temperamental but have managed to get back on the net and must say what a fantastic machine and after seeing that I have gave up on my MDF "SPECIAL" and will go the aluminium rout. I see you had a good mentor Mr John S what a great bloke and I must e-mail him and try and get my build back on track and what to do next. That is the sort of machine I would like to build and I also live in Long Eaton literally 5 mins away from John and I see your in Derby what a small world eh? Would love to see that baby working bro maybe some time........
If you want to come round and see it in action then your more than welcome, also happy to help pointing you in the right direction as it is amazing how much you learn in a short space of time building a machine.
If your 5 mins away from John S then I am sure he can help with all the stuff that you need, but if he's too busy then I'm only 15 mins away.
Good thing about John is that he lets you 'borrow' loads of stuff and you don't have to take it back....:naughty:
