    Hi Washout,

    Good to see some machining and an interesting way to get a fourth axis into the table.
    Noticed that your X axis syncronising belt looked a bit loose by the way . . .

    Thanks - it seemed like a good way of getting the thing mounted without faffing about each time. Especially as the mounting holes in the chuck of course didn't line up with the table slots (sod's law at work as usual). I could have put the additional piece of extrusion on top of the existing bed, but I'd have lost a lot of Z clearance that way.

    Re: the belt - thanks for that as well - it needs a bit of a tighten and its normally a little slack but the tensioning pulley has obviously moved a bit through use - probably the higher speeds I've been using on the acrylic in the other videos.
    .
    I'm also cutting the logo in the acrylic into the other side of the PC case, which is steel and will be the first time I've tried that (deliberately at least anyway ;) ).

    Nice start. There are some posts somewhere on this forum where I motorized mine and others rotary tables. Have to take some care to get low backlash, but it's do-able.

    I made something yesterday, then noticed it looks a bit like a light-saber:



    Can anyone guess what it actually is ...

    Hi Jonathan,

    No idea what that is - are you selling them to a less than desirable government's internal affairs ministry? ;)
