The son and I did not let any grass grow under our feet, we went to work on it last night and primed the parts. We are going to start the build tonight, and see what we can get accomplished. I know this build is a long one, but a great challenge.

The painted parts.

Well, the weekend brought some quality time and we used it wisley, the CNC machine.

Here are a few photos of the build up to date.

We managed to get the top and bottom of the gantry done and primed. The main issue here is to be sure the pieces are square and flat, or binding may occur on the X & Z axis.

We also got thr bed done, this had to be done section by section to be sure the bed is flat and square. There are 1/4" threaded rod that goes through and will allow for a small adjustment, if necessary. We will be gluing 1/2' cover piece on the bottom of the bed, and a sacrificial 1/2" top.

Dislikeing paint and varnish as I do, I thought it wise to paint the pieces before assembly leaving the areas unpainted where it will be glued. DO NOT DO THIS. caused me a lot of grief. I did end up doing it again anyway. I guess the son was right, he said after.

Just a lot of labour right now, but I am picking up some gas pipe and ordering motors this week. I think I have sourced some 10 - 2 start acme rod, locally.

Hope you enjoy,
John

Well to show you guys, we have not been sleeping, I got a couple of photos of the bed and gantry.We have purchased our pipe for the carriages, and have to start the task of shining it.

We also have to build the axis bearings slides, 8 of them and them puppies need to be correct.

Don't laugh at the "green machine", my choice of color, not Scott's first choice. I win again,

A bit of an update, but mostly that silly thing called labour, happening. I have managed to get as much paint on me as the table, I guess I will not swell.

Have a great weekend
John

Well John, that certainly is labour intensive. Do you always choose huge projects, I mean this is a real back breaker but it seems you and your son are up to the challenge.

It's looking very nice.

Keep up the great work.

Ed......:-)

I think I am getting foolish in the old age, but the son keeps me young and thinking. I always get the question from him "Dad can we build one of these", you can see the resaults. I don't choose them, they seem to choose me.

Bob

The blades you see are a set of rail and style, with a panel bit. The rest are just bits. I did have a shaper but got rid of it, the thing took room and I used it so little, "twice" to be honest. One of my gotta have pieces, that sat.
I bought the panel bit and the rail and style bit for the china cabinet for the better halfs collection of Angels.

Thanks for viewing!
A couple of photos.
