    I had no idea they made them that big, I bet it's not Chinese though ;-)

    You think that's too expensive? You're not a Model Engineer are you? :D

    John,
    The cog looks similar but no, the video is a Gantry Job, it does vertical milling operations on the parts first with a Z axis you could park a Mini in, scale it down and it would look just like one of Jazz's routers, but maybe not quite as over-engineered as Jazz's stuff ;-)

    That was a serious machine ! (Unless it was a normal size machine with very small people running it?)

    The Z axis actually moved the whole gantry beam up and down, which although I've seen it done is unusual on DIY machines.

    I wonder what tolerance they can hold?

    Thanks for sharing Nick

    If you watch closely the area above the tool whilst it's skimming the top and inside surfaces you can see that there is a Z with 1m to 2m travel which seems to be what they use for this job rather than movement of the whole gantry.
