    new cnc machine startover post....

    it would seem that my thread with the cnc startup pics has gone by the boards. so, here we go again! got the bench made and ready to go a while back. i'll have to modify it a bit to fit the 1.8 meter rails. then the fun began. there was a long box, and a flat box. seems the flat box had all of the upgrade parts, and the long box had all of the regular parts, along with the longer rails. tuesday i started putting the v wheels and pulleys together (sorry, no pics there), and wednesday i put together the four carriages. more pics to follow when more is done.

    The Shapeoko looks like a really decent entry into CNC.

    I'm gonna love this thread

    I agree with Leo, does look like a nice entry level kit. Does it use a rack & pinion or belt drive for the carriage?

    got a bit more done the last couple of days. got the spindle carriage assembly put together, and my brother did the tapping of the screw holes in the ends of the aluminium extrusions. soon it will be the testing out of the electronics.

    darren, it uses a belt drive for the carriage, and a threaded rod to drive the z axis.

    That is one of the fun parts of these builds, kinda cool just to see the motors spin.
