PCB’s arrived from China today.
Very pleased with them and the service. £10.95 for 5 boards made and delivered within 7 days.
Not to put you off but building any cnc from scratch even a basic little stepper machine, takes hundreds of hours of reading and research.
Crazy busy with pre-Christmas orders at the moment so haven't progressed this much.
The idea is to work on it over the Christmas holiday so we can...
To be fair the Tekmov controller in the Tekcel routers works very well, but it’s a closed system so it’s easier for me to rip it all out and...
I’m currently in the process of converting one of our 8x4 routers into a plasma table.
The build will consist of:
Tekcel CNC table retro fitted...
Hypertherm 45xp recommendations:
TBF if I put in a 63A commando then I will probably run the appropriate cable to put a 63A breaker in.
I do, but it runs another machine most days.
So I have ordered a Hypertherm PowerMax 45XP to drive one of my 8x4 CNC tables that I'm converting over to Plasma.
Cheers @Tom Orrow L for a great...
Yesterday, I acquired a Wadkin AGS 12" table saw with a brand new spare blade and a original spare motor for the grand total of £50.
Ran it up...
I have the flexvolt dewalt tracksaw and love it.
I can easily cut an 8’ sheet with mm precision.
I have a 42” flat 4K screen at home and a 42” curved 4K screen at the workshop (both Philips).
On a big screen perspective makes the corners of...
All MOT testers are temporary!
100% of generalizations are wrong :laughing:
Yep, my small CNC has a 4kw side channel blower. The big machines have 7.5kw blowers.
By far they are the biggest power draw in our business.
In general you can’t have anything but a motor on the output of a vfd.
Most will state that you can’t have any reactive load.
Might be a line reactor rather than a transformer.
No, you need a single phase to three phase convertor. It will run on 230v.
I was expecting to see plate 35' long!
