  2. Evening all. For anyone interested in milling Aluminium with a hand held router as I have been doing in this build I've made a little (very amateur!) video of the process:

    https://youtu.be/22cCYY5pVMI

    My setup is a 10mm carbide endmill (and collet) in a dewalt 1/2" router. Using a trend adjustable jig clamped to my bench. Not so much a "how to" as a "it can be done if you're patient!". I couldn't find much on this on YouTube when I looked a year or so ago so thought I'd fill the gap with some shaky phone footage!

    Nice vid Joe (I mean the one of you skating around St.Ives showing your wild side ) only kidding.

    Just goes to show what can be done with a few tools (one can always be hired for the weekend) I am a bit surprised how well it hold the ali down under the jig.

    Haha! Yes that was fun! I stuck the first down with double sided tape but this one just a bit of masking tape around the edge and the pressure of the jig was plenty.



  6. I have finished the part in the video I posted before . This is the z axis motor mount. To complete the story I have also made another little video - https://youtu.be/PT56_YEkClo

    Many Thanks Joe,

    Think I must have previously missed the link to your overall build video which I've just watched and it's now bookmarked for reference.

    I'm finding your build log is gradually developing into a great one for me to reference!
