Last few days been working on this :

The machine dimensions are 4.2X1.75 meters, cut area will end up to 3.6X1.35 meters, so big enough.
Here are some details of the reductions on both sides:

Other side

Bottom part where the pinion and the big pulley are mounted, gutted two healthy Vexta 5 phase steppers to get the bearing holders and bearings that did the job perfectly:

This is how the frame looked yesterday:

Another shot of the reduction in place:

Regards,
Tom.

slightly bigger than what i have going on and it probably took you a week to toss it together compared to my 3 months of building :lol: i'm amazed by the ability to toss it together so quickly.

2 and a quarter days so far, full days from 10AM to 1AM!
Took me 5 days to make room for it as i had to rearrange the shop, to many things, waayyyyy to many things to move and clean !
This is my right hand after two days of drilling and taping hundreds of holes:

Back to work, no slouching allowed ! :)

I quit the job at that factory, got tired of waiting for parts as they were miss handled by that Russian guy, for 3 years he did nothing!
I am to old to be waiting for anything any more! :)

What kind of power supplies are you using Tom? Are they switch mode units or torodial?

any reason why it's running on the Z axis or is that just for testing movement until everything is configured and finalized?
