Have decided to go back to drawing board & start designs form scratch sell on previous attempt ! I have limited workshop tools but have access to cutting & drilling - may ask on here if some components can be machined but not at that stage yet - drawings attached ! Have been talking to Dean quite a bit, invaluable advice.
I want a cutting area of 1250mm x 1250mm cutting sheet wood, cardboard mainly but want to do some 3d carving of wood at some point
Currently my Bed is 1500mm x 1500mmm approx
Think Ill just ask you for advice & recommendations regarding components below
X & Y Axis RM1610 Ballscrew travel 1400mm approx
Z axis RM1605 350mm approx
Now some questions regarding the ballscrew
4x anti backlash ballnuts
4 x Support Units which are best some balance between quality & price
4x couplings ?
Not decided mounting brackets any suggestions ?
Dimensions are guesstimates so can be adjusted as per final dimensions of Gantry & Z axis designs
Rails & carriages for X, Y & Z axis
HiWin type cartridge rails 20mm on X & Y axis, 15mm on z Axis correct me if
Mounted on profiles with T nuts every 60mm
What carriages & size of rails for each axis ?
Need to dicuss Bed with you assuming 18mm th MDF
I have a Kress spindle and a Makita palm router I could mount or am I better going for another solution
