CCCKC CNC Back in Action

CNC Mill

After the move to the new location the big CNC router started acting up.  The problem was eventually tracked down to the Y axis lead screw acquiring a slight bend in the move.  Thanks to the efforts of Dave Dalton and Luis Rodriguez (thanks guys!), the lead screw has been replaced and the router is up and churning out parts again.  Luis and Nick Woods have been cutting stools for the big room:

The Mehls cut the parts for a Link cosplay sword:

And I cut out the mounts for the R3's hold down rails and the blank for its sacrificial top:

Hopefully we'll be seeing more member projects rolling off the router soon!

    Hi,

    Your CNC looks really good. I am intrested in building one myself. So my question is if you are willing to share you build plans or will there be a kit to purchase.

    Unfortunately this project has stalled a bit due to other tasks taking priority. The ABS frame looks up to the task but just isn’t rigid enough for a quality machine so I’m slowly replacing parts with milled HDPE but I have no idea when I’ll have the design ready for prime time.

    Hi Craig,

    Thank you for you reply. Same you had to find out that the frame is rigid enough. Like your design alot so i more then willing to wait. Please keep me posted.
