I’m starting to design my frame with the new shipments coming next month. I’ve heard so much about adjusting the motors in and out depending on what material you’re cutting to keep the chains parallel to the work piece. On top of that there are chain guides that some have made and also the idler sprockets that also need to adjust.
I’ve had in the back of my mind to not adjust these items above, but rather adjust the bed. I’m planning on building some z-axis adjustable wooden skids that my cutting material will rest against. They’ll be wooden so that they can act as a sacrificial piece and will be easily replaceable and cheap. The skids will then be able to adjust to the material I’m cutting in the z-axis so my top surface cutting plane always stays in the same location although the thickness of my material can vary.
I’ll model this up so I can better relay what I’m saying. If you understand my gibberish, are there any show stoppers that you can think of before I waste my time trying?
