The Following User Says Thank You to Boyan Silyavski For This Useful Post:
My router made its first moves on 1st 2017.
There are some issues that need solving:
1. The guy who bored my pulleys obviously did not know what he was doing - terrible runout on some of them.
2. VFD is causing my PC video card some troubles. While spindle is on my screen goes black for 1-2 seconds with an interval of 10 seconds. All cable shields are grounded and no other anomaly occur.
3. Spindle watercooling
4. Final bed design with side-covers
5. Dust extraction
7. 4th axis
I put on some temporary bed and made some chips :D
It is the coolest project ever! Thanks guys!
Well done, looks great!! Always good to follow a build through to completion...though I do believe a video is needed of it cutting 😁

Hi guys! Just needed to share, couse felt a little success moment today.
Not anything too special but...
It has been a deeeeeep learning curve last 3 months. Made some chips and broke some bits
Have tried different materials: wood, ply, pom,acrylic,alu. Its been great - lot of learning
So today I did aluminium. 2d adaptive, 6mm doc, 14300rpm, 785mm/min, 2flute carbide endmill, z fully extended, wd40. Best sound so far for alu! Honestly...it was quiet! I constantly thought that something is wrong and will screw up.
Finishing pass + chamfer. Though chamfer was a little bit disapoitment in radius section.
Did not wanted to make a video. Since few years back I promised myself that I will never going to manually apply wd40 and compressair, or hold a vaccuum hose next to spindle .
