Not much more to add, here are the rest of the photo's, same thing, in more pieces, lol. And one pic of the rest of the parts I have collected.
Yup servo driven, this is a large servo for the job, bit of overkill in fact, but it has a brake so when the drive is turned off (or blows up) the brake latches and stops the Z from plummeting into the table. As it is oversized I am direct driving it, not the norm for servo's but it should be fine. Only thing is that at top servo rpm (3000 at least) this gives the Z a potential speed of around 30metres a minute...should be interesting with 150mm of travel
Nice work so far Benny and Mikie... I would say "race ya!" but I know I will lose out on that one, last machine took me two and a half years to finish...I mean stop working on...
