Getting back to my CNC mill project as I was so rudely interrupted by medical issues an weather bad enough to keep me indoors. I am on 2 meds that leave me temperature sensitive.
I noted a light surface rust on my slides so I took them to the bead blaster for a cleaning, masking, a spray of Rustoleum and a light coat of oil.
I have part of the upper section cut for the legs, I need to finish that up then I can set the Y and Z axis in place and wire it up.
My spindle motor is in, I just need to wire it up to the speed control.
I have the Stepper controller and power supply as well as the USB interface.
I need to install my video card for Mach 3 compatibility and hook all the jumpers and switches. I violated convention(Mine anyway.) and used a switching power supply to run the steppers and controller. I think in a week I should have it all up and running and create a program to drill the table for holding the plate to the frame and holes for clamps.
Soon as this is done I have about the same amount of work to do to my 4 axis foam cutter.
