Here is my first cut project after building the sled and Meticulous Z axis upgrade (still need my dust chute) I made a ramp for my 6 year old Basset Hound Rosco to use while he is recovering from tweaking his back. On Dr.s orders of no jumping or running so this will help him a little. 1/2" MDF (well that cuts way different than ply. broke a bit) covered in a rubberized paint followed with grip texture paint. Ended up with out enough traction so I am adding a rubber nonslip pad to the top but here it is.
I also moved the bricks from the bottom location as I felt they were too low and off balancing things. I moved them up as seen in the pics which balanced everything nicely but caused the sled to rotate slowly requiring constant attention.I had to re cut a piece du to a broken bit and a crap chinese spare I had (never again) Final solution was to move the bricks back to the bottom but mount them perpendicular to the sled, worked great with a new bit and the relocated bricks.
