I am building a cnc router the x and y axis are ready but not i have to make the z axis can someone tells me from where i can get a plan of a z axis , i need a travel between 3 and 6 inches can someone help me find a good design
I don't know if this of help but here are some pictures of my Z axis. I still need to add a block to the anti-baclash nut to connect the router holder. Coupling, anti-backlash nut and thread clamps are from DumpsterCNC.
The blue stuff is painted TUFNOL(I found this stuff lying around work so its was free but could use MDF instead). The linear bearings approx £30. Type in dumpsterCNC in this forums search engine for prices for coupling, anti-baclash nut and thread clamps(sorry for lack of link). Laminate trimmer was brand new of e-bay for £25 inc P & P. A real bargain as it also has speed control.
