    The right tap makes all the difference! Broke my m6 spiral machine tap a while back and had to tap 7 holes with a straight old regular one last night. Probably took 3-5 minutes / hole because of all the back and forward you have to do. :(

    And the words here are my Brother is a wanker! Bits of my machine are under all that! I've managed to clear most of it now and found the bits for my machine luckily everything is ok BUT I am missing a set of BK12/BF12 bearings.

    2 pieces making the bottom frame are 6045 extrusion which makes it look a little odd. I wonder if I spaced them close enough together the gap is less than 30cm between each extrusion will have an 18mm MDF board on top

    I'm impressed with KJN's cuts the frame fits together perfectly. I had the outer frame cut from 9045 ages ago then had them cut the 4545 and 6045 that make the bed up the other day. Other places I;ve used they would not fit properly.

    Need to have a think about legs I want to have a shelf underneath so I can put vacuum cleaner & cyclone, water cooling, etc on the shelf to keep things neat and under control.

    Now looking at it I realise I need to add more supports for the bed I have another piece of 6020 I can cut to 2 1m pieces and if I buy 2 more pieces (£24) then I could do this for the bed

    With a a sheet of MDF on it I think it would be ok.

    I wouldn't have the frame drilled I would just use corners and T nuts I have enough kicking around.

    Hmm this might have been talked about already.. but is the gantry spanning the long axis instead of the shortest possible?
    Or is the image playing tricks on me? ;)

    There was method to my madness, I originally had SBR25 and 15mm clone Hiwin's so I decided the SBR25 could take the most weight and made my gantry span the longest axis. (This is 1.5m) then I ordered 1 1.4m ballscrew and 2 1m ballscrews. A few weeks later I managed to score more original 15mm Hiwin's so now the whole thing will be linear rail.

    If I had the Hiwin's originally I would have built it the other (More conventional) way round but hey hoe.

    If this is a real issue with flex I will have to buy another 1.4m ballscrew and convert it over it wouldn't be too hard.

    I think I will make the bed a vac table using 16mm holes (I have caps to block off the areas not in use.)

    The recess is 1220mm*800mm so I can cut MDF/PLY to fit perfectly into the recess with 1 cut.
