Making Tools

October 26, 2010

October has been a month for making new tools. I’m working on a small CNC mill – 2’x4′ bed, 3-axis. Its my own design, though it borrows heavily from a couple of the designs on www.buildyourcnc.com. Here’s the beginnings of the X/Z axis:


The Z-travel is a little short, on account of my jumping the gun and ordering the lead screw before the design was finished, and 2 inches too short. The plan is to use this machine to bootstrap a more elegant and precise version 2.0.
