    I've been on this forum since April 2020, asked a few daft questions, got my head around what I'm after and have recently collected and set up my new machine.... Maybe you know the chap who made it?..... Goes by the name Jazz something or other.....

    Anyhow, after many lengthy emails and conversations discussing needs/wants type of build, this Jazz bloke who also likes to be called Dean has rustled a few part together to produce my first CNC. Feels solid as a rock and weighs more than one too. Me and 3 mates were at our limit lugging this brute into my workshop.

    Just like to say a massive thanks to Dean for all the info, the 4 hours I spent with him 'upt North showing me the ropes. Has got me off to a cracking start and he is a top bloke to boot. I'd gladly recommend anyone chatting to Dean to see if he can build something to their needs. Can't see you going wrong really with the knowledge he has.

    Anyhow, here are a couple of pics and I even tidied my workshop up all special like.

    Thanks for posting Pilsbury. As someone somewhat further down the waiting list for one of these machines, I was hoping to get an early glimpse of one on this forum.

    Certainly is tidy. But please we want more......photos, video, impressions. Good luck as you take your first steps into CNC

    It's happening Andrew we are working through the list nicely, this was the first out the door, the second one went on Friday. We have machines scattered around the new workshop in various build states as Pilsbury will confirm. It will be worth the wait.

    BTW Jazz, Bottom right of the photo is a jar of double cable insulated bootlace ferrules - neater than an uninsulated one.

    Cheers,

    Very neat! Nice to see Dean using some of the same design ideas as me
    I like the bespoke furniture making the best use of limited space.

    I tried to tidy up... a bit.

    An optimist says the glass is half full, a pessimist says the glass is half empty, an engineer says you're using the wrong sized glass.

    Ok then, more photos coming soon as Iím mid way cutting my first ďproper pieceĒ 😉

    But some first impressions. Heavy. Very bloody heavy. Sure Dean may correct me, but my guess is 400kg. All parts are heavy duty, either thick steel box section for the frame or milled aluminium....guessing over 1/2Ē thick. Totally rigid which is key to accuracy and decent cuts. Ploughs through the wood Iíve presented it with and I bet Iím cutting conservatively. Can cut aluminium as shown by Deanís test piece he gave me. Iíll save aluminium for a later date. Electrics wise, I know little about, except to say the electric enclosure is neat, tidy and well laid out. Certainly not a wormís wedding!

    Iíve had zero mishaps, no broken bits, no issues at all and Iíve done a fair bit of cutting now. But that must be down to my extensive CNC experience (5 hours) 😉

    Perhaps tomorrow when Iíve finished my current piece, Iíll post some photos of my efforts so far. Promise to be gentle.... Iíll also some more machine photos

    Erm, I'm struggling to see any correlation Kit other than both use Steel and water-cooled spindle.?

    Well, Solid Works say 265Kg but I've got a feeling that was calculated using a 3mm wall tube and we have used 4 and 5mm with a scattering 10mm steel plate for things like gantry sides. The aluminum parts are a mixture of 10mm, 15mm, and 20mm. I'm thinking the extra 100kg+ discrepancy could be the powder coating...

    I haven't actually weighed a finished machine yet because soon as they are finished I'm trying to get them out the door, just don't drop it on your toe is my advice...
