Thanks.

Just went on holliday to England for a few days, visited the Wings & Wheels show at Dunsfold park.
Camped in Washington, also been to london.

I've build almost the whole table from drawings I've got all over the place, 
But I'm willing to make plans of (almost) everything.

I already have a lot of things I would do differently if I was building a second machine.
Like the Y-axis drive system, it's quite big now, already got ideas to make it smaller.

Anyone interested? In a whole threat with plans and drawings and explanation?

You can always PM me with questions, or post here.

Today I finished the 10 legs of the table with adjustable feet.

First I welded a nut on a 60x60 plate:

Then welded a 50x50 square tube in the 60x60 tube, and welded the plate to the bottom.
Grinded smooth and painted them red (ofcourse the legs are holded by piece of cnc routed wood):

Installed the legs:

The adjustable feet are 100mm round steel plates, I welded a nut in the middle, and welded a piece of threaded rod to the nut.

Experimented with vacuum table, works very well:

The gas struts I ordered were too weak, ordered better ones.
Until then I'm using old batteries to keep the backlash minimal:

Really need to buy a nice dust collector, routing gives a lot of dust. 
New 4Kw spindle should arrive this week.

The bottom surface is going to be a 25mm MDF panel, with slots for vacuum routed in.
The vacuum-table will be created in (four) sections that can be switched on or off separately.

Routers have a fan that blows dust everywhere. You'll have much less of a problem with dust with the water cooled spindle, they are lovely and quiet too!

Haven't thought about that one, it will be better without a fan blowing the dust all over the place.

4.0Kw spindle arrived. mounten the mount on a mounting plate (not painted yet):

Another one with a 1L coolant bottle for size comparison:

The variable frequency drive:

A radiator I had lying around:

I'm using anti corrosive coolant (with the black painted mounting plate):

As soon as I've got some time, I'll connect the VFD to the 380V and get the spindle spinning.

I made 1 of the 12'' sections of the 2x12'' + 2x6.5'' tops, dis some testing and measuring, it was quite good. But after that I didn't go on with the design.

I would still like to go on and design, build and test a hornloaded top.

Did some work on the table, and some routing.

Found some space upstairs, placed the table and glued 25mm mdf panels in place:

Flattened the work surface, used a 25mm bit, routed 2mm deep:

Bought a dust collector:

Was quite useful, flattening created a lot of dust:

Flat working area:

I didn't route the vacuum pattern yet.
For the dust extractor, there is going to be some sort of cyclone system.

Also I made an auto Z-zero tool, just a piece of bare pcb and an aligator clip.

Had some speed issues, reinstalled mach3 and driver, most problems are gone now.

That's actually rather genius!
Where are you at in the process towards completion?
Best regards,

Quite far, here's a list of things I've still got to do:

- Buy a better pump for the watercooling

- Build a cabinet for watercooling

- Build a cabinet for the motor controllers

- Build a cabinet for pc and touchscreen

- Connect connectionbox on Z-axis

- Mount emergency stop buttons securely

- Mount emergency stop poles on Y-axis

- Get aluminum blocks instead of a stack of rings to support ballscrew bearings

- Starting and controlling the spindle from Mach3

- Starting and stopping the dust collector from Mach3

- Start to build some cabinets

Yeah the last point on your list sure is the key towards putting a dmile on your face! Great work so far and very kind of you to share this!

Teun.

A few days ago I routed some signs for a friend, result:

At an auction I bought a nice cabinet for the pc, motor controllers, watercooling and power distributor:

At the same auction I picked up 2 C-audio Pulse 2650's:

I've ordered relays, circuit breakers and wiring for the power distributor of the cnc.

I've been doing some routing on the cnc.

I've build 2 12&1" speaker/stagemonitor:

And cutted all the wood for a friend's Soundcraft SI Expression 3 case:
