In which a new adventure begins, not knowing where it will take us or how long will the journey last…

As stated in the  about post, I will be including info on different projects I have  been doing and hope to keep doing in the next months.

First one I want to include is a DIY CNC machine built from plans purchased from Rockcliff… here I post two videos of the first cuts… The model is scaled up from the original plans, which has caused some problems: the threaded rods that drive the motion are not supported in one of their ends, and this makes the rods bend a vibrate too much, so at this moment the machine is torn to pieces to upgrade it with supported rods, which will hopefully allow me to increase both, stability and speed. I am also planning on builing some kind of isolaion enclosure to reduce dust and noise, which are a no-no when you don’t have a workshop and use an spare room in your downtown flat.

First video, just trying out the machine…

Second video, trying the 3D carving capabilities:
