Building the Mamba 2017

This post will go into detail about the build from the ground up.
Feel free to follow the build. The completed cutting area will be 3000mmx2000mm

I have a couple of questions that I will post first as I bought the plans 22/09/2017:

I have a cutting list and I would like to know how many of each I will require, I am also getting it cut from 300 stainless steel "non magnetic - so please let me know if you think there will be issues with stainless steel 300"

Here is the profiles, please let me know if I have every thing I need as I will be running a milling motor on the mamba:
1 x 10 20 451
1 x 10 20 452
1 x 10 20 456
1 x 10 20 457
1 x 10 20 458

1 x 10 30 422
1 x 10 30 450
1 x 10 30 455

1 x 10 40 372
1 x 10 40 432
1 x 10 40 433

1 x 10 60 215
1 x 10 60 315

1 x M5 10 312
1 x M5 10 314
1 x M5 10 322
1 x M5 10 324

I want to know if http://www.smslinear.com/guidewheelstrack.php are still in operation as I need to order 14 x GW3SSX and 6 "off Eccentric Bushings" B3X

Hope Rick's email works rick@superiorbearing.com

Motors that will be running the show Nema34 x 4. 2 on my X-axis, 1 on the Y-axis and 1 on the Z-axis.

Will also include prices because "RDI Projects & Steel Works" Will do the cutting, bending drilling, tapping and welding.

Welcome, Leonard. I hope you enjoy building your MechMate.

It's worth noting that "Mamba" is associated with someone who tried to rip off the MechMate design and sell it as his own product. That was shut down quite a few years ago.

Below is the full "Classic" set of drawings. On 9 Nov 07 they were replaced with the "Mamba" version.
Quote:
As from today, the drawing files on the downloads page are for the Mamba version of the MechMate. (The Classic has been filed in the archive)

What makes the Mamba different to the Classic:
This is on the download page in archives named "Drawing Plan files for downloading" and also "The MechMate "Mamba" version has been launched" so Brad this is official name of current plans version.

Ah, that's right, it was also there as well - I think that's where the stolen brand name originated. My error.
