Thread: Nature abhors an empty topic
This has taken me weeks but it's looking good. Decided I wanted an overall screen on the torch so it's a bit chunky. The torch height control circuit should be fun in a nightmarish sort of way. I think I will use a double fibre optic link to control the cutting head, I'm getting a bit paranoid about the 100 Amp cable interfering with my data lines.
I made the little nut that moves the torch up and down today. Mild angst when I squared out the ends of the slot for the fork it bears against, I was probably only a few thou and half a degree out but it still looked a bit naff next to the CNC cut parts. Luckily it's hidden behind a fancy aluminium plate :D
Next the rod that connects the X axis pinions at either end of the gantry, maybe the bracket that holds the stepper driver and Z axis driver, there's a lot left to do.
That looks like a nice bit of kit your building there mate, is this your own design or?.Me
I might have looked at a few machines before I drew it up, best not mention any names in case I tread on anybodies toes :D
Feel free to post links and names no restrictions here..Me
It's not your toes I'm thinking about :lol:
