something else to stack up in the garage never to be used????
Well in your defence your not far off lol . But seeing as I’m going to be jobless, I suspect I’ll get things in order whether I like it or not .
Guys,the reason I was curious about a 5x5 is there’s a guy at Joes CNC who uses 5x5 BB for something that he sells , and apparently the 5x5 BB size only comes with the certain properties that he needs , as the 4x8 sheets are different?
Can’t remember the difference , but there was something that he didn’t like about the construction grade of the 4x8 sheets for his application.
Also I believe kitchen cabinets etc use mostly 5x5 sheets to avoid waste I suspect . Not that I’m interested in making them really , but if someone wants to pay .
I cannot fit a 4x8 easily , at least I don’t think I can , but after I reorganize the shop, maybe I’ll figure out a way . It would be my first choice size wise.
If I build mobile bases for my bigger machines and store them at the end of the shop , it may be possible to fit a 4x8 .
Personally I actually hate 5x5 sheets ,as my arms are short , and I have a hell of a time picking them up .
But the way I want to setup my shop , a 5x5 would be an ideal footprint , and the extra foot I’d get both ways as opposed to my first idea of 4x4 may come in handy.
Not sure how much the extra foot of gantry will effect stiffness though
