My Mechmate coming up - India

Hi Gerald,

Some time back I said that I will start Building Mechmate as I got my right wrist broken in an accident it was postponed. Now I am well and started it. I had collected all the material.

My Mechmate will be of 2500mm X 1300 mm

I have cut all the raw material for the Base Table according to above size. Instead of 50mm Pipe I will be using 3" X 1.1/5" Channel. I hope within a day or two the Base Table will be completed.

I will post my day to day progress with pics.

Manjeet

Manjeet,

Congrats on starting out on your Mechmate, looking forward for your Mechmate's pictures to guide many towards their build like that of Fabrica.

Hope you recover soon from your injury.

Hi All,

Here is the Assembled MDF Board. I made a drill jig to make holes in the MDF Board and Channels. This was quite easier than using MDF Board as jig to drill holes in Channels.Because Holes in the channels were drilled on Drilling Machine rather than Electric Hand Drill.

Thank You,
Greg

Hi Greg,

It is very simple Jig made from 1.1/2" angle Iron cut exactly equal to the width of the MDF Board and then drilled with 5/16" drill according to drawing.I will post the picture of the drill jig.

Drilling channels and MDF board took only 1.1/2 hrs to comlete the job.

Manjeet, it was never intended for the mdf to be used as a drill jig. My intention was only that the MDF be screwed to the cross-bearers before (and during) welding because it holds everything in the right place and squares the whole table.
MDF = drill jig? NO
MDF = weld jig? YES

Thanks Manjeet and Gerald,
I have not studied those drawings in detail yet, but my "initial" impression was to use the MDF for a drill jig. That won't happen now. Only as a weld jig.

I should be cutting rails this weekend. Stay tuned. This sure is one fun project.
