Great Work!

Thank you

I can only think what the neighbors would think if you were cutting at night and all they can see is the shadow of the chains moving in the window.

Nice job.

@marm

I like the way your mind works …

Thank you

one issue is that the beam is not forward of the work surface, so you will need to add something to move the motors forward (the chain will want to be just over 6" forward of the legs if you have a 3/4 backer, 1/2 wasteboard and are working on 3/4 material, and use 3/4 ply for the sled, and use a rigid router)

the original frame used pieces of plywood screwed to the 2x4 and that has proven to be a problem (the plywood flexes, and the screws aren’t solid enough)

Going to stack 2ps of 2x8" to mount the motor on… then i am 6" in front of the frame…They are not going to flex…
Going to use a makita rt0700…

I like it so much. The only difference for what I had in mind is the dust collection, but I might copy your idea, because it looks better :slight_smile: . You will have a good advantage of keeping the weights closer to the sled. Cant weight to see some results.

what problems are you having?

why did you angle the motors and mount them to blocks instead of having them on the top of the top beam?

Problem is that i had to to a new calibration, the sled ending up 20cm over center…And moving 100mm to one side messureing 92mm.

The motors have to be spaced out,any angle works here,i got the arduino over the board so that decided the angle for the motor(cable run)

Here is my sled…
the idea was that the 3 channels was there for not making a vacume,but did not work,had to open the air intake around the router a bit more…(1500w vacume)

Z axis parts.

Bore diameter 6mm (motor)

Bore diameter 8mm(c-beam)

T-nut for mounting the motor bracket on the c beam.

Working realy good… adjusting the c-beam bearigs and its rock solid…

what are the dimensions that you have for motor spacing, etc

I like the look of that z-axis. Any chance you could post more details on it?

What do you need?
z part list is 3 post up…
Used this clamp,cut down to size…
Taking router in/out take 1 sec…

3301,6mm think this is max whitout extending the chains…

Got it working now…

Was mainly just looking for pictures to spur inspiration

can recommend this one,…only small adjustment of the bearings needed and its rock solid…

Ist a copy of this one.
