    I have missed that. Great looking machine. I have designed something similar and i know price could not be cheaper, having in mind aluminum, machining, parts and so. I am thinking - make it more expensive but offer it turn key. This is obviously a production machine, then people will have money but no time to fiddle.

    Out of curiosity, how is it going? Any interest so far?
    project 1 , 2, ...

  2. Its going ok, had a bit of interest and sold a few, but as i expected every one is slightly different.
    We are not aiming at the lower end of the market, infact it makes no sense to, these as a turn key, will be in the 7-10K range depending on the options.
    You will notice that all of the parts we use are higher end, like precision grade profiled rails, C5 or C3 ground screws, servos and all branded switches, relays and safety systems, and as a business we are not going to compromise on anything, because it will end up coming back and biting our asses.
    This is a machine we are building at the moment.
    We are also only going to be using enclosed cable chains to stop metal swarf getting in and damaging the cables.
    This machine also has a cold air gun and timed lubrication for cutting.

    That looks very nice, I particularly like the huge slabs of metal standing up at either side, "Monolithic" I think, is the correct description ;-)
    You must have different FEA software than all the Johnnies that seem to think 10mm is plenty ;-)
    If you will not be swayed by logic or experience simply pick the idea you
    like best, but ask yourself why you sought advice in the first place and,
    for a simple life, perhaps consider not doing so in future

  4. thanks Nick.
