    How about a sensor on your head connected to the osh22t button Nice to see it in action though.

    No because as soon as the oshiiiiiiiiiiiit button is pressed the gantry drops....... However........I do have my foam kneeling pad which I don't use anymore now it's vertical....I could put a couple of cable ties through the handles to loop under my ears to keep it strapped over my head!!!!

    Nice vid Neil - lovely chip stream towards the end there.

    BTW - would demi-jon bungs do for rubber stops or not man enough for the job - just a thought as the type for the airlock come pre-drilled iirc.

    Cheers Chris, the chips were fair flying out...I was finding them at least 3m away from the machine. Got to put sides on the machine and box it in to contain them all. Lots of little jobs still to do on it but I'm getting there... slowly!

    They'd be good, not sure they're long enough. Will measure the length I need when I'm back off hols in a couple of weeks

    Just like to say after using the router vertically for a few weeks that it's the best thing I've done to the machine, it's so much easier working on it....no bending over the rails to load work, no twisting to get at the collet to change the bits. If the bits are smaller than the collet then you don't have to hold them in whilst tightening...the bits fall out of the work so you're not re-cutting them.....only seeing positives at the moment

    List of things to do next is...:

    1. Home & Limit switches!!!!!!!
    2. Dust/chip extraction (was cutting 12mm MDF letters and it goes everywhere!!!) is a must!!!
    3. Enclosure round the machine to stop dust/chips.
    4. Cooling Fans/filters in the control panel
    5. Cooling radiators for the coolant
    6. Finish off the control panel wiring.

    Hi Neil, sounding really good, BUT, please please please do not cut MDF or exotic woods without a good amount of extraction and/or a damn good breathing mask ( I am only assuming you don't wear a mask of course )

    My reason for butting in here is that my father died a few years back following a long painful lung condition brought on by his love of making things out of MDF and exotic woodturning in the shed. He did have the dust extract that had bags on it but he still came out sometimes looking like a snowman!

    Wood dust is nasty stuff.

    It made me change my views on carefree metalwork as well, I spent a lot on serious extract for the plasma table, i've stopped powder-coating now, I have stopped turning cast iron on the lathe due to the dust and so on, it focuses the mind a bit.....

    Dave
