CNC Router CAD model finalised

Posted on

The CAD model of the CNC Router project is essentially complete, so production can continue with the gantry and Z axis. I’m hoping to have this project finished at the end of February, which will allow a huge expansion of the range of products which can be produced in-house.

CNC Router Gantry Fabrication

Posted on

The next step in the CNC Router build is to fabricate the fixed gantry. The gantry consists of a 200x100x6 piece of SHS supported by 100x100x3 SHS legs and fronted by a piece of 10mm plate to provide a flat mounting surface for the precision linear rails. The back stays are 75x75x3 SHS. The front […]

The muffler on the Barber Precision 260c was completely rusted out so, to give the car a unique sound, we decided to fabricate a custom stainless muffler from scratch. All the parts were cut from tube or plasma cut from stainless plate. The outer housing is a piece of large bore pipe to cut down […]

CNC Router Design Change

Posted on

I’ve rethought one of my primary design decision with the CNC router and decided to go with a fixed gantry – moving table design. This will decrease the working area from 900×800 to 700×800, however it will result in a far more rigid machine capable of easily cutting aluminium. The above rendering doesn’t show the […]
