Been doing a little more work on my CNC machine, got a fair bit of the X axis finished. The MDF parts were designed using QCad then roughly cut out with a fret saw, will give them a better finish at some point, but for now all the important dimensions and angles are accurate.
The connection between the stepper motor and the threaded rod will be made using heat shrink tubing once I’ve bought some.
There is a slight disparity between the end of the threaded rod and the stepper motors spindle. I think this is due to the way the stepper motor is mounted, as the guide rails and threaded rod seem good and parallel. Hopefully this shouldn’t be too problematic.
Also I’ve started work on the Y axis, which I should get mostly finished tomorrow.
