    first cut with router tonight , sons name engraved on a piece of laminate flooring... may not sound much , but to me its bloody fantastic ... to stand and watch a machine you have built moving around cutting on its own ... no hands , a happy chappy

    ...now to make it better

    Looks very good - always nice to see the machine move for the first time and do something useful!

    hi
    on my y axis i have been using 4 v groove bearings i bought on ebay
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/V-Groove-CNC-R...Domain_3?hash=

    i had a slight wobble at the cutter when cutting and tracked it down to the few mill play in these bearings , preloaded the bearings against the rail but could not eliminate the play, so today two 800mm supported rails and 4 bearings arrived from zapp, these are going to be a big improvement ....

    who says scotsmen are mean , why buy proper rails when you can buy 4 v grooves for 26 .....
