Got some 32mm mdf for the base and 16mm for the spoil board . Got the base screwed down and even managed to cut out a little project. I think the results are good and I am happy with the over all performance of the MM.

I believe that I may need to upgrade to belt reduction as I am not totally happy with the finish. Don't get me wrong, the results I am obtaining with direct drive are more than acceptable for a wood working machine, I would however like a slightly better finish

Attachment 3630

These marks are fairly fine and could easily be removed with very little effort with some fine sandpaper and for a lot of projects these would not be of any great consequence.

The 3:1 belt drive might just be the solution. I will keep you all informed on how I get on.

Jayson.

Thanks Jayson, I have been collecting these kind of things from the various forums. I hope to build some of them but most of them never see the light of day because of my "time deficit"

Blake, looks like lots of us have this problem. Kids, Wife, Business, Job, etc., etc., etc.... (sometimes more than one). This can really take its toll on your "Mechmate Time". I really love making stuff on the Mechmate, but time is really an issue. My suggestion is to schedule a set time on the weekend and do the CAM stuff in your spare time through the week. It works for me. Good luck!!
