    I don't have the means to cut out some of the parts, but would really like to build a CNC machine. I've ordered the Hobby CNC kit w/ 3 steppers, and have put in an order for the six foot long acme threaded rods. Today I will order the skate bearings.
    The parts I could really use are the ones for mounting the steppers to the machine, and the parts needed for the backlash assembly. I can build the torsion boxes and main gantry with a table saw, radial arm saw, etc.
    If someone could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.
    my e-mail is spyder_meister(at)bresnan.net or esoteric(at)bresnan.net

    thanks
    -Jim

    Why not just make them yourself?

    The antibacklash nuts, for example, are very simple to make at home. You need only a tap (thing to cut the threads with) and a piece of plastic from which to make the actual nut.

    Since ACME taps are expensive and hard to find, you can just grind down and sharpen a cut off piece of your ACME rod, and use it to chase the threads. The resulting nut will be a tight fit, and more than adequate for a first generation machine.

    If you want even better control of backlash, there are some slightly more sophisticated designs that can be used.

    Here's how I did mine...and they worked great.



    The slit cut almost all the way through allows the nuts to be "bound" slightly, and reduces backlash quite efficiently. VERY simple to build.

    Hope this helps.

    Does anybody have STEP files of Joes CNC MODEL 2006
    R-2 machine? I am wanting to re-model it in Native
    Pro/E. Will anyone export their
    Solidworks files of Joes machine to STEP so I can
    read into Pro/E and start modeling. Once complete, I will
    post the Pro/E models for all you Pro/E guys out there!
    Thanks!

    I'm hoping Joe can cut my parts in time so I can finish it before christmas. Would love to make some gifts and remind people that I'm a woodworker for hire.
