    Look significantly beefier than the stock one, I like it! Although it's direct drive so you don't have the torque advantage of the pulleys. And the single vertical lump of aluminium for the frame will flex if you start whaling on metal without the tailstock to support it.

    Don't forget to order a stepper driver to power it, the ones Omio are flogging seem pretty reasonable so far.

    You do make a good point. From what I've read having a belt system always improves resolution since a stepper motor is limited to the number of teeths it has. Even though this one has a NEMA 34, it that may be a problem...

    Maybe something like this would be better:

    See how it has the fatter body through which the spindle is mounted? That will make it stiffer against twisting away from the tool under load. But I don't trust worm drives, too much backlash potential and not a lot you can do to sort it out.

    I also found this. This one is a worm drive as well, but at least they included a video of it being used.

    Well, they've got numbers for backlash etc. If they are acceptable and remember you'll need to pay more for the three jaw chuck and tailstock, it looks ok. Particularly as it's configured to be mounted either as an A axis (rotating around the X) or down as a C axis (rotating around Z). That's pretty nice.

    Pretty well settled on the 2200L-USB with 4th axis, but what troubles me a little (ok a lot) is no examples on use of the 4th axis. I made another request from Grace this morning which should get an answer later tonight for some kind of link or reference on this vs just being a sales tool.

    Not ordered yet but not much left to consider or figure out really for me. Looking forward to seeing some comments and work samples here soon.

    For 4th axis examples, have a look at any of the cheap HY-3040 4th axis videos. Pretty much the same.

    I had a swag of tooling turn up Monday but I'm still waiting for my collet set to arrive so I can use them! Also, I decided to stop using the machine until I get it off the old kitchen table and onto something a little sturdier with an enclosure, so shed time presently is devoted to making that table up. Won't see a lot of examples for a little while as I get all that together.

    Yesterday managed to get the basic frame for the bench together. Steel patio tube (76x38x1.6mm galvanised mild steel tube) and screwed brackets. Similar job is holding up my lathe and baby mill no worries. By the time I have shelves in this guy together with some cross straps it should be plenty rigid and heavy enough to cope. The uprights are to hang covers off.

    Nowhere near as pretty as some enclosure/benches I've seen on here but it'll get the job done and so far owes me under AUD250 with not a lot left to spend (I need a sheet of acrylic for the front panel)

    Golly but this is slow going.

    Still, the machine has a new home. I need to extend some cables so I can get that control box out to knee the e-stop, I need to make some slightly less ghetto clips for the acrylic panels, and I still need to make a tooling drawer.

    My collets, edge finders and smaller ball mills haven't turned up yet so there ain't a lot of panic yet. Mostly excitement - it's starting to look like someone meant it!

    Not been much activity here.... anyone cutting anything? Omio finally quit responding to me after I asked to see some 4th axis work. After all you sell the thing lets see it work??

    Nope.

    Enclosure's built, my collet set arrived yesterday so time to start either cutting chips or bogging and crashing the machine. We'll see. Thanks for the reminder, I would have forgotten but now I'll set up the camera next to the machine to see what happens.

    That's annoying on the 4th axis but, to be honest, it doesn't surprise me. The machine itself seems pretty well put together (for a lightweight dinky toy type machine) but the 4th axis really is a piece of sh6t. I need to have a play on it with a bit of dowel sometime and see how it goes when the tailstock is used to help support the job but, now I've seen what it's really like and what you can get out there for not a lot more, I think you're probably better off getting the Omio without the 4th axis and buying a better one elsewhere.
