Thread: Z axis front plate
Size is 395 x 170 and the alu thickness isn't critical - 17-20mm is fine. There are 26x M5 tapped holes to do but the rest is fairly straight forward profiling and pocketing.
Ignore the spindle mount in these pictures, its the plate I'm interested in.
I can supply the alu used for the plate or pay you for yours. Either way I'm paying for the the work involved.
I am looking for a very similar Z plate to be made if you are interested in providing the Alu and making it for me ? (at my cost obviously)
I have ordered a Chinese "80mm spindle" mount to go on it ;

I will give you the exact dimensions when you confirm. Needs to be sent to N.France..
haha, how long is the long wait ?
I've got a few other things I've agreed to make for people, so I can only do it once they are finished which will be at least a month so probably around Christmas.
Sounds good. When the spindle collar arrives, I can give you the hole spacings etc.... 250mm tall, 160mm wide should do it? 15-20mm thick. How would I know if my Z axis can handle the weight of this spindle ?. The spindle is the same physical width as my whole Z axis, although with max force I can not feel any play or movement at all.
