    Default CNC Construction Set Build 4 Blog

    I totally dismantled the CNCCS prototype. Many of the parts are the same as used on the current builds, so I decided to do a new build from scratch so that I could utilize these parts.

    On this build I am going to go with aluminum on the plate material. My goal is to do this without any special machining gear. IE pretty much using a drill press.

    Before I get started I wanted to show you my layout since you will see much of it in the background of this build.

    My shop/lab is divided into six 12" x 12" sections. I label them 1-6 with 1 being the 12x12 section at the double door entrance to my shop.

    The section I will be using for this build is section 2 shown here.

    Currently this shop section contains:
    30" shear, break, slip roller
    CNCCS Build 3 with downdraft vent and plasma cutter
    TIG Welding Workstation
    Extra CNC PC
    6-Ton Press
    20-Ton Press

    Note that I went ahead and removed the X carriage from the machine and placed it on the table. Its going to be removed again real soon anyway.
