Now we have turned the timing wheels and put in some key ways

We have also worked on the engine mount
A while ago I ordered servo motors and drives from Zapp Automation
with 1600 watt and 6 Nm torqeu (Permanent magnet synchronous AC servo motor of sine-wave drive.)
I also ordered at ONECNC a cam package I chose the ONECNC XR4 millAdvantage so I hope the beaver mill will be operational as soon as posible
so we can make some chips I am looking forward to it.

Nice job Andre.
I wish these software sellers would list the price, just spent 10 wasted minutes trying to see how expensive the onecnc package you bought was, talk about the run around.
Not that I could aford it just like to know these things!
Entry level is listed at about a grand but I think you can get them down to the £750 mark but it's only 2 1/2D and no 4th axis.John S -
If you would like to know the price you are advised to contact ONECNC and they will gladly help you out.
Thanks for the info John.
Andre, thanks but not what I was getting at, I would like to know if it was worth looking at or is it out of my price bracket which it certainly is.
For a hobby and retirement the low hundreds can still be to pricey!
I much prefer free and lots of time learning, time I have money I dont.
