Thread: Newb from Scotchland
Hi, After some head bashing with the account verification system, I finally got authenticated.
I am a completely unqualified British Bodger, Shedhead and Tinkerer. Possibly one of the worst people to have as a neighbour, from a Health & Safety point of view.
I have built three CNC routers so far, all to my own design;
#1 was built from timber. It was wimpy but did make a serviceable laser cutter
#2 was built from MDF. It was over ambitious in size and I resolved never to use MDF again. It is unstable and soaks up humidity like a sponge. However #2 was quite good for a while.
#3 my most recent build, has been made from super chunky aluminium C-channel. I just have taken delivery of trapezoidal leadscrews to upgrade from the recycled all-thread. #3 is in a semi-finished state. There are still quite a few mods to be made, but you can see her below.
More piccies of badly built CNC routers and other crap I have made are available on my blog: The Crapworks
Screw it, just do it!
