    Here we go. It all started with an idea of approx 2ft x 3 ft bed and i had a nice space in my shed to put it. I watched ebay and bought a few bits and pieces and then it went all wrong in a good way
    My brothers factory was closing down and all the square tubing was FREE. and i also got two lengths of linear rail for cheap approx 2mtrs long followed by another two lengths off the same-ish length. so i had to build one to those dimensions...Honest
    The motors and gear i had was no good for that particular size so off to Zappautomation and i bought the full set of closed loop stepper motors including THC.

    Hopefully the following pictures will tell a thousand words and you also get deducted points for a tidy workshop, so i will not be expecting any deductions .

    Cheers Tommy.
