Thread: Z slides ??
Tripping the light fantastic tonight I fell over this.
It's off a specialised drilling machine, air operated and has a 4" stroke.
More important it's on 16mm linear rods and dry line bushings.
Main problem is the framing is steel, 6" x 1/2" and heavy but it could be transposed onto alloy plate.
Dump the air cylinder and you have the basis for a Z axis for a large router or plasma cutter.
I have two of these and they are virtually new in that once the concept was proven we built a 4 headed machine.
Are they worth £40.00 each to anyone ?
Just sent you a PM john !.Me
John, you still got any of these fella? how difficult would it be to install a drive screw to replace the air cylinder..?
Yes still got the pair, shouldn't be any problem to fit a screw everything is flat surfaced and easy to drill / mount to.John S -
sent you a pm bud ;)
