CNC Router..continued

Visit Tagbits to see the full range of tagger products described in this blog.

I've been really busy with LaserTag stuff..but recently I've had chance to resume my CNC router project.

This last week I plucked up enough courage to drill the £75.00 worth of aluminium I bought for the Y axis, it's 1500 x 550 x 15mm in size:

My simple Clarke pillar drill is woefully inadequate for this job.

Stage one was to spray mount a 1:1 2D print, (using my A0 printer), of the holes that I needed to drill in the ali plate:

Using an optical centre punch and the large bench at HacMan I centred all the holes. My colleague Ian at work drilled, counter bored and countersunk the holes impeccably using the Bridgeport vertical miller we have there:

Need to plumb in the motor next...
