    I can't tell you how many projects I've seen stall out and the OPs disappear. To see all the axis installed and running, simply outstanding. And those robotics images, holy ****.

    Just came back from vacation, now have some time to work on the mill again. Reached a huge new milestone the spindle is spinning. Yesterday machined a bracket to mount that huge servo on the head.
    Today machined the pulleys to size and mounted them on the servo. Hooked up the driver and connected it to the cnc controller and works like a charm.
    Yesterday also the custom made T nut table arrived from Vacuum tables UK Looks supper nice and shiny.
    Next thing to do is making the mounting bracket for the ATC cilinder so i can load some tools and do a test cut.

    Made a small movie running an old drilling program dry with a tool change half way.

    First test cut is a fact. This morning i first finished the bracket for the air cylinder after that i was able to load tools in the spindle.
    Did a test cut on a piece of aluminium started slow with a low feed rate but after seeing how it went i cracked it up a bit ending up with 4000mm/min 10mm DOC and 1.5mm WOC at 6000rpm
    Probably a p*ssy cut for the machine but i had no idea what i could expect.

    Next thing i want to do is mounting the home sensors and installing some cable chains. Also need to order the way covers for Y and Z axis.
    Feeling so excited to see it make chips after putting so many hours of work. Next cuts will have to wait till i have proper enclosure because this makes one hell of a mess.

    Nice, looks like a success. Video is real time?
    An enclosure would be a time saver. I have a Cnc knee mill and it makes a huge mess

    Yes video is in real time. It looks a bit weird because after a while i crank up the feed rate. That enclose will be there there is also flood coolant on my list

    Wow! Congratulations! Inspirational work!
    I'm a longtime reader of this forum (without registration), but today I made my decision and register to comment here
    And a question about one of your measuring tools: what was the source of your straight edge?

    Thanks for your answer. And yes, I have a plan to build one as well, but a little bit smaller than yours
    First I have a lot to learn and I will jump in this playground with smaller projects. I'm also a hobbyist, so i have time, passion etc to let myself dreaming ...
