Was able to cut some aluminum parts, I am using the machine to cut parts for the machine..
how cool is that.
In case anyone curious, this is for the Z axis which will HOLD the Spindle in place. I am using a high speed router right now (which spin at a higher speed but have no torque and extremely noisy). I am making a Spindle, which will be able to put a motor on a belt system that will geared it down.
Cutting speed in video is 800mm/minute .5mm per pass, but this is first test cut. I was able to get about 1200-1300mm/minute. With a more sturdy (stronger bearings) it should be able to cut deeper per pass.
