Love the work of plastic/hdpe into the build... I need to get on that as well...
Thanks for the post.
p.s. are you cutting these out on your other mill... or the shapeoko?
I cut them using the Original shapeoko, I had all the parts laying around, but once I cut them I decided to make this the old-version, main change is the longer rails. On the new machine I am going with the steel v-wheels and I didn't want to waste the 500mm rails.... summery in order....
- 1) machine in pieces
2) re-build with 300mm rails, to have a machine on which I can cut parts for new machine.
3) decided to upgrade this machine with the parts I was cutting (good experimental platform)
- a) 300mm->500mm rails
b) all the other updates as listed above.
- a) y axis 600mm, x axis 760mm rails (want to have A2 size work area (420mm × 594mm) usually one looses about 165mm in each axis to the mounting plates and v-wheels.)
b) steel v-wheels and hardcoated open-rails
