Just call me:
 
Newbe here - Pennsylvania, USA

Hi all:
My name is Dave and live Pennsylvania, Was a machinist a long time ago like 21 years ago. Now driving truck. I have a wood shop out back and do part time cabinet work.
I just found this site and think it's great. I started to plan my buying for the steel. There is a steel yard not far from me that has lots of steel and machine parts etc. I think the guy will get know me very well. Will be looking forward to working and posting here.
Take care and have fun
Dave

Hi Dave,

How close are you to Pittsburgh? I'm getting ready to purchase some steel and just wondering if your guy is close...

Thanks

Hi Dave
Welcome. This is my second post on this forum so I am a newbie as well. You said that your laser cut parts are in shipment now. Would you mind sharing from whom you ordered them and the cost. I haven't ordered anything yet I am just beginning the process. I was going to search locally for a shop that does laser cutting. There are quite a few automotive related machine shops in this area (Windsor/Detroit). However, if a few have ordered from one supplier, that supplier will be more familiar with the Mechmate needs and I will have less hassle trying to explain what I want.
What motors, controllers, power supply,etc have you decided to go with?
Have fun with your build and post lots of pics and info.

Paul

Sorry for the delay in posting.
I'm not sure but the place where I got my laser parts no longer sells them. I checked thier site and it is not listed there any more. If you want you can send him a e-mail at donalds-hobby.com.

Guys,
As far as I know Donald is not selling MM kits anymore. He had some trouble and decided not to do any more kits. If anyone has info that he is now supplying kits again please post details on the forum.

Forum,
Donald's Hobby is not selling parts anymore. I was his last MM customer. I have a source here in Orlando, FL with a laser that is working on Mamba parts pricing. I will post up the cost's soon.

Anyone else ever wonder if these abandoned threads ever resulted in a finished machine?
Makes me wonder what the true number of completed MMs really is...

If 1 % made a machine that would be a lot of machines.

Al...that's funny.
To be honest.
The first one was for me.
The second one for a friend
The third..was a school project for my students
The fourth..just helped a friend who built an awesome machine on his own in my shop.

It got really easy on #3......I didn't need the drawings anymore
