    Default Joes 2nd Machine

    First of all i had build a simple and cheap CNC Machine for one purpose only, to be able to machine parts for my New CNC Machine I am building now.

    OK now that I built the 1st one I was able to learn the software and working of CNC, then came the task of drawing up plans, I got a jrgo plans, but they had an even smaller cutting area than the 1st one i built this would not do me, so I sat Down and redrew it all to a much larger machine, This one will have a cutting area of around 26"x45" (to be finally determaned when finished). After I got it all modeled the way I wanted it came the task of starting to manufacture all the parts.

    So now here are the parts I have done thus far for your enjoyment and questions are open. Here is a screen capture of the model.

    Looking good Joe!! I've started on a second smaller machine in steel, mostly, and I'm still finishing the little parts on my first machine.....Too many ideas, not enough time.....!! Keep the posts coming love to see new builds, especially different approaches to the same problem....

    BTW, are you using the BDI for EMC???

    Joe I must applaud you on not only building a 1st machine but also a 2nd!!!!!!! man you don't hang around. When making your'e own machine would you recommend building the basic structure 1st ie just basically the frame and then getting leadscrews, motors etc after or do you get all the materials 1st and then make the frame to fit??? It puzzles me of what is the besy way to go any help is always very well appreciated. Laz.

    Aren't you going to get a lot of flex with those long unsupported pipes?

    What i do is see the parts that is most available and easy to get then build a machine around that. For example the standard lengths and standard thread and pipe dia.
