    Hi Tom,

    Something else that beginners may want machining is a holder for a Dremel tool or similar. Some kind of clamp to attach it to the Z axis.
    Building a CNC machine to make a better one since 2010 . . .

    Tom,


    Great effort and thank you for offering your services!


    Here is what I did, with hand tools. Maybe you could speed things up by using your cnc machine.

    What do you think Ross? lol

    Thanks Lee,

    Yours is alot better than my 1st effort (which lasted not very long at all!) :)

    Barry, A router mount is a good idea - I'll get on it. Kress is 43mm, Trend is ??mm (maybe 42?), and proxxon is 20mm. Not sure what dremels are.

    Like I mentioned before though, if anyone has bits they need cutting let me know. I'm happy to work on the bits people need before they get to the router mount.... :)

    By the way, the MDF motor mounts are still on sale, and doing well. One happy customer anyway!

    I deleted the text because it wasn't functional, and reduced the cost.

    Still think you'd be able to charge more with them made in Delrin or Nylon and you wouldn't need spacers...well you could throw in one for longer mounts?.
