Thread: Warco Major CNC build log
Tentatively wired the hybrid Z axis motor up today, a bit of light relief after doing the VAT return.
Only had 2 Amps spare for it to play with but it doesn't seem to mind one jot, even though it is moving the quill at twice my normal speed
Also rough cut the honking plate on a bandsaw, see pic, don't know if I'll get anything done tomorrow.
Milled out the honking plate, still needs a slit and a couple of holes opening out but nearly there.
Not sure I actually need it, I sank the detail 20mm in and it cut it 20.04mm with the bodged plate.Wish I'd tried harder setting the Z in retrospect
Pic shows honking plate next to the Warco depth stop plate it replaces
Looks cast to me.
Do you want it welding Robin ? or are you going to make a new one.
I can stitch you that back for the price of the postage.John S -
I weakened it by putting in steel insert nuts then went a bit wild tightening the bolts :naughty:
All part of life's rich tapestry but still a silly mistake, looks like I'm further down the learning curve than I thought
I was going to run a bolt down through, maybe fillet the cracks with Al solder but this here welding sounds interesting, I could use a smaller bolt. See what you are up against before volunteering though
No problem with that, wouldn't put the broken bit back anyway, just build the whole end up with filler weld, 15 minute job.

M8x40 did the trick, gap closed, put an arrow on the pic in case you couldn't see where it was
