    Thank you very much for the pictures and the explanation Andre!
    I surelly learned a lot by looking how a real professional tackles the problem.

    After seeing the beaver mill in real yesterday I surely didn't wanted to miss anything of the build!

    For those who are waiting for more pictures, "The best has yet to come"!

    Thanks again for the great coverage of the mill conversion.

    Kind regars,

    Julien

    Hello everyone,
    I've been busy lately but here are some more pictures of the build.
    First I made some adjustments to the motor support
    so I have enough room for the motor for the Z axis.Click image for larger version.

    After making the assembly for the Z axis painting it was a pleasure.
    I've chosen a black paint to get a two-tone effect.
    On the picture we can also see the clamp that will be used for clamping the counterweight cable .

    Then I thought having not enough height in the Z so I started making a extension piece
    that was faster said than done because I had a metal ring that was to smale on the outside and inside .
    On te picture you see the ring when finished.

    To assemble the extension piece on the turret I had to make bolts myself because I could not buy these bolts in a store.
    A simple task if there is no hexagon slot in it.
