hi All the gantry is Number 3 of size and type. It is being built so Can machine the new VMC. The previous two machine were five Axis with Siemens Controls.

I would like to use a Linux control on the New Machine. The goal is to build the frames here in the US and sell the K443(40x40y30z) as a kit machined and ready to assemble offer the parts Ballscrews, Linear rails etc and have a Linux based turnkey control.

The hard part of building a machine is having a machine big enough to machine the parts for the new machine. Locally the cost of having my parts done by an outside vendor way crazy expensive.

Anyone wanting more info drop me a note. I am wiring the spindle today and finishing the modification on my z counter balance.

For reference the small mill frame picture and ready to be machines is 72 inches wide 84 tall and 96 deep

Any thoughts on the project or helpful suggestions are welcome its a work in progress.

Thanks

That last one on rollers i like a lot ! To bad i am 12000 Km away, i would get one in a heart beat. I have some THK 35mm rails with long carriages new collecting dust. They would be perfect for that. Also have some 45mm, but not enough for that.
How much would that cost roughly, ground, drilled and tapped ?

Hi Tommy

Shipping might be bit of a problem. I have a smaller one I am working on that might be interesting. Got the spindle turning on the Gantry Yesterday. Error comping and doing final alignment on the Gantry and hope to start machining the parts for the New 443.by end of month. I would really like to get some help putting a Linux based system on the New Mill with the goal of offering it with the pre-machined parts. Drop me a note when you get a chance. Maybe we can work on the control remotely or you can pop over to Pacific North West and check it out. Salmon fishing is coming so there is that to add to the mix.

No problem, was just curious on the price.
We gladly help, always.
I would visit, but due to some private "things" or "issues", i never did go to U.S. despite having citizenship for over 3 years.
I have not been fishing for at least 25 years, i was pretty good at it.
Thanks for the invite.

HI Tom

Still working on Pricing for the frame and kit components. Ball screws, Linear guides bearing blocks etc. I am building two more frames like the one pictured and will keep better track of time and material. I Also have a Tool changer for it. All the mounting holes will be pre drilled and the enclosure will come as a flat pack ready to assemble.as well as chip auger and coolant tank. More pictures coming once I get some of it machined.

Thanks I looked at and subscribed to your you tube channel its very informative. I am working on getting a Linux cnc system working on a small mill I built for testing. I am trying to get it set up and operational so I can better understand the system
