I'll post a pic of one of my machines when they are back together in a few weeks, maybe less. I can probably dig out some pics of certain pics that I took like making the V rails, etc.. I used the cncrouterparts.com rack and pinion drives on the large machine. The smaller machines are screw version.
Well I am running acell at about 100 to 125 and I can say I had to go to a metal base because the hard directional changes made the machine jump and a lot. I had to bolt it it the floor and walls at on point,.. But if the tube can handle it great, I can just turn it down to 60, the larger motors don't work so great any thing less than 30 - 40.
The lasers are really packed well from what I can see and I was not really thinking of adding a bunch of padding like that. That sure is one expensive thing to test on.
I definitely will start the 2.xx first so I can take what I learn to the next project.
One comment about Lasersaur I sent them 64.00 and I was supposed to get access to CAD drawings, still haven't I guess I'll write it off. If anyone has them how about sending them to me, I can show you the paypal payment.
: okay I jumped the gun it took a while, but I did get access to lasersaur. And the plans are not bad like I have read here, not at all, just different and not even that different either. They do credit this forum.
