    OK, here is Episode 8 (part 1). This one is for the upper cover plates on the main housing of the Y axis. Caused some problems along the way as I don't have the proper tools for sheet metal work but got there in the end.

    Its one of those days when you think you know a little about building stuff, then you watch this video!!!

    That has to be the biggest DIY mill head i have ever seen, its a work of art in aluminium. Four rails? Wiper seals? Covered screws?

    This thing could be made at the Rolls Royce factory :)

    It really does need an ATC spindle in there though, collets & spanners are old-school :)

    Nice work.

    Yes would love to do the ATC spindle but need to finish this thing first! I added footage of me changing tools and tightening the collet because 'Jogara' had a post on tools slipping on the ER collet. I hoped to show you only need to hand nip these things.
    The wipers were Zeeflyboys idea and design but I was so impressed I had to fit them to my machine.

    It's a magic hybrid printer - an Epson Stylus Office BX635FWD with a Premier Elements 15 app . . . .
