Hi dear Mechmate Community.

I have started building the beast with a friend of mine some weeks ago. But we are very limited for the moment with time as we work on the construction on some weekends. We decided to share the our construction story with all of you ( Mechmate Community members) .

For now we have achieved just the following milestones :
-> Purchased the plans and digested them for weeks.
-> Read the forum daily for the sake of information.
-> Purchased equipment for cutting and drilling.
-> Purchased the majority of Metal (C channel beams UPN180 and son on)
-> Cutting the majority of the pieces for the base table.

I will post some pictures as soon as i modify them to suite the size that is acceptable for the forum.

Some of the difficulties that we are facing right now :

-> We are still searching for a local company here in Casablanca-Morocco for the laser cut parts.
-> We are looking for another bigger working space for rent.
-> We are still looking for foreign suppliers for the other components (Spindle, v-groove bearings, steppers, etc...)

Best regards to all of you.

HI

I just wanted to share an update about the building. As I mentioned before we rarely manage to have free time to this projet.

The laser cut part have finally arrived after two weeks of waiting from a local company

I have also welded M12 Nuts to the foot closing plates of the base table (Part 10 10 334).

Best regards.

Hi

Another update.

We finally managed to rent another more spacious workshop (About 50 sq meters ) with a reasonable renting price. The previous one was 15 sq m .

Ps: the floor will not be tiled .

Best regards.

X and Y rails and V-wheels

Hi all,

I wanted to share some updates:

- We are now at the stage of cutting the v-rails
- I will receive today two test parts of the v-groove wheels from two local fabrication companies. we must decide with of them will take the offer :
--> Company 1 : the quote is 5,5 $ per piece without bearings
--> Company 2 : the quote is 25 $ per piece with bearings inserted and ready to work with.

Any advise, please ?

Thanks a lot Robert !

Here are the pictures of the v-wheel test parts :

I have chosen the quote 1 because the company N2 didn't respect the design very well as you can see in the pictures (the ones with one bearing inserted). Even if the company has raised the price to 10$ per piece.

As for the cutting process of the rails, i am still struggling on that point. in fact, we don't have a good flat surface.

I am wondering if i can use the main longitudinal beam as a reference surface, but the cutting process will be vertical. (It seems to be a little bit complicated).

Best regards.
