Couldn't find a mount to suit so I crudely (for now to test) made one from 3" x 3" x 6mm aluminum U channel.
Still awaiting the couplers but it's bang on anyway.
That's how we're looking so far. Another 2 mounts to make and each one is slightly different so need to tackle another 2 separate designs yet.
And here is the other nema 23 stepper motors. Stepper motors drivers. Breakout board. Serial cable and power supply.
Plus a 2.2kw spindle motor. (Go big or go home right) well I went home from Corfu early and I went big. That's not why we came home early. That's because the hotel was a dive. The people. The food and the economy were all terrible and our surroundings were a danger to our son.
That explains that.......plus the air conditioning leaking above it and the refusal to swap a room.
There's also a VFD with inverter for the spindle motor. (Which is water cooled) the fish bubble tube with exhaust brackets is going to be a section of the water cooling. Stay tuned for that. Some magic happening with a peltier module.
Still need ddr3 for the desktop but I have most parts for the conversion now.
