    Continued with the frame today


    Encountered the first mayor problem.
    I've had the Z axis plates milled from steel. Because of some sloppy cadwork (had my calculations wrong) the Z axis rails had theire holes in the wrong place :(
    Have drilled the hole's larger to get it together so will have to use nuts and washers to fasten the rails.

    Have a feeling I will have to order a new plate :)

    The underside of the frame have gotten some paint and the epoxy experiment has begun :D
    I framed the x rails with wood and sealed it to the steel with latex. Then I glued strips of masonit to get the right width of epoxy channel. 40mm wide for 20mm wide rails and 50mm wide bridge at the middle of the rails. Have just brushed on a small layer of epoxy to really get it tight with no leaks. Big pour will happen tonight or tomorrow!

    Good luck with the pour, keep bubbles out and maintain a reasonable temperature.
    I think it would have been a good idea to include some diagonal bracing on the frame; http://www.mycncuk.com/threads/6565-...2425#post52425
