I got the pricing of ABB Ltd. (UK based co.), we have bulk supplies of this co. and known among us high pricing co. , pricing for same amp was 1300/- which is of one of top quality products. To reduce my bill I purchased good one instead of best one.
FYI only.

I asked for Lapp O flex 1 mm sq which was 162 INR per meter (can get cut length), but I am going on for .75mm sq 4 core shielded - from local supplier - and as we are going for 2 machines we might buy a whole roll of 1oo mt costs around 6k INR.

I also used .75 mm sq. The problem with them I found while crimping, have to crimp them and press with pliers, I suggest 1mm sq.
Wheels looks good, will they carry MM load? What are these called?
Thanks,

I am not getting 1 mm sq cable and probably want to avoid it due to high costs.

The wheels will carry upto a TON, I have seen them on several machines now - but the Q is do I need them really? for this machine - I already have the vib foots - so probably will not buy these.

these are just call castors.

I love the burner guy's open footwear - he don't care about the hot blobs of sparks he makes! (I know he is the burner guy because he is carrying his guide for the torch).

Nice carving Irfan. What material is that? Did you add black paint to the carved areas or is it multilayers?
Good luck with your new build. It is looking good!

Thanks Johan,

donno what wood it is - a friend gave me some for carving and he used brown fabric paint to fill it up and then sanded it up.

I aslo did some carving on the wood for the side legs. will post completed picture soon.


The above is all V carved.

On the mechmate - I did get to finish mounting the Atom MB in the box - then designed a controller box which will house everything and have only wires jutting out towards the machine. Will keep ya all informed.

some more progress

The guy building my cabinet has limited knowledge of sheet - and it was the first time he had built a box like this - so looks pretty neat - the guy building my machine could only get so far as putting together the sides, not fully welded though.

Update

Just a few updates - and I got blue on the control box.

I have got most for the build - I am now only worried on finances for the spindle only - even a chinese feels expensive after spending so much

I ran into trouble for the atom MB I am using - it needs the windows xp cd to be in the drive to boot always.

I have tried so many things - making the boot disk as the hard drive and trying several reboots but the same problem

I have connected the cd drive as the master and hdd as slave.

hope anyone can help me here.

Irfan, we ran for 5 years with a router intead of a spindle. In fact, one table is still running with a Makita router. There is nothing wrong with learning to control the beast with a cheap router . . . . You ARE going to run a cutter through a clamp - do want to to that with an expensive spindle?

I agree G' but I have neighbours already complaining about noise - I have a makita on the other router I build - but I fear the pollution control people will be at my door steps soon if I dont do much about the sound, I am presently planning to enclose both machines like you have did for one of yours.
