    Today i machined the main shaft that is holding the plate on where the tool grippers are. I also made a small new movie with a status update on the machine. You can also see the toolchanger move.

    First of all, great work Stef and kudos to your persistance on a such an extensive project!

    Question:
    Saw that you prepared yourself for the 4&5th axis too. Do you intend to build it on your own? If so, what kind of mechanics do you intend to use? Harmonic drive?

    And may I ask were you anytime considering an HSK spindle and why you didn’t go for it at the end?

    P.S.
    Would love to see your project insights even more often.

    All the best,
    Aleksandar Sladic

    That is really coming along!! Will the tool changer have an enclosure or be exposed to the coolant and flying chips?

    @SladicStroj i bought that BT30 spindle already a long time ago. At that point i dint really tough about other spindles then a bt30. I still don't regret this spindle so far it works perfect.

    rocketflier Yes there will be an cover around the carousel with a door that opens when the carousel moves in.

    This weekend if finished up the last wiring en coding on the macro, made 2 videos about it one that explains the tool change process and the other one show some small machining with the use of a few tool changes.

    I can't believe no one has commented yet since your last update. Awesome progress! Youtube actually recommended your videos for me before I even checked your thread.

    I love your touch screen and interface, it looks fantastic. Did you do the interface work yourself?

    Really nice project!
    Does your vfd stop at a certain orientation? How do you set that up?

    Aluminum frame CNC router, JET GHB-1340 Lathe conversion, Bridgeport BOSS Retrofit, I'm gonna be busy for a while.
