    JAZZCNC is your man for the Vertical CNC, I like the concept and would do it if I had the right space for it!

    They can, but I must say that everything they do say is very valuable and will help you a long way in your design. They are both very knowledgeable, they have helped me alot in my design so far, hope it continues! :whistling:

    They certainly do. Listen and you will learn.

    Why waste words when you can get some other muppet to say it all for you. .:naughty:. . . . Erm which muppet would I be.????? . . . Oh Oh I know one of them piss taking old bastards sat in them theater box's . :rofl:

    Anyway here's my thoughts on it.!! . . . . Don't hesitate and go for it. It works an absolute treat and very little negatives.

    If building from fresh then I'd position the gantry to run horizontal not vertical like mine does at the minute. I have mine this way to stop the screws getting covered in crap because of how it's built.
    I'd build a super strong bedbase with rails running down each side and twin rotating ballscrews under neath the base. It would be very much like this just using ballscrews instead of R&P.

    Jazz would you add a 90 degreed collect/chuck to the spindle so less protrudes out of the z-axis ??

    hey jazz that MY photo-!! copyright.... joking obviously-!!

    thats an axyz machine- having spoken to the sales guy- he was saying they don't actually sell these in the uk- theres a few in the states but not many-

    I asked him about material holding etc and he thought the same as me- although there's a vac table it's not that efficient- and if you were to cut out a circle, for example, as you got to the end there's a danger of it falling back onto the bit- ruining it....

    He said obviously you could do mechanical clamping etc but bit more tricky....

    i'm pondering a fold down solution, so like the photo but if cutting difficult things/ things that might be hard to clamp, you could lift it down... lots of counterwieghting required and a really stiff table design... hummm

    but looking at the photo the z axis is counterwieghted to reduce gravity i guess... nice looking tho...
