Thread: my build
Looks very good - always nice to see the machine move for the first time and do something useful!
never did find out any more about that rack contacted ondrives ltd they emailed me a drawing of a rack i filled in the dimensions and sent it back , that was over a month ago never heard back from them
on my y axis i have been using 4 v groove bearings i bought on ebay
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 .....
