Donkeys being cut in France! - Galgan, France

HI, I'm on this Forum from a long time, and i now start, i've got a big part of material, i just whait for the steel for the table, i have weld the Y-car this day, and i start the kitchen project, it's a little easier for me because 1 year ago i have built a small cnc for hobby and i've got the knowledge of cnc use.

Salut Mickey, i am too in france (le Havre) and in the process of cutting and welding.
I am having some trouble finding racks M1 in 15mm x 15mm, i found some of that stuff in smaller section (10x8) but they are super short in length (450mm).
were you more successful in you area? Good luck for your project and thanks everyone for contributing to the immense source of information found here.

Great pictures Mickey,

Keep'em coming.

A question to Gerald, my cut area is 1380x2500, i calculate 7 beam under the table with 350 to 400 space, my question can i really need 8 or i can decrease to 7 ? and i've calculate 4 hole per beam, do i really need 6 ?

thank's for repply, because if i need 8 i cut another tommorow.

Believe your calculations. 7 is enough. 8 will make only a tiny difference.

I would go for 5 holes per beam - it is easier to mark a center hole

300 km in a straight line - you don't have straight roads!

It looks like farm land. Are you a farmer? I looked at a close up of your property and there is a large building that must be a barn. What is grown in that area? My Mother was from a farming family in Ohio.

Mickey,

Is that a plastic wheel you intend to mount on the leg shown in one of your pictures? If so, that will never handle the weight!

hi marc,

It's not for the entire MM, just to move the X beam with Legs to it's future position, it's about 50 meter from, and the whell can support 300 kg one.

I'm alone at this time to move some big parts of the MM, i can move one beam at a time but with legs it's no possible, my beam is 3100x200x78 cm.
about 80 Kg per beam.

I'm not greeen (Hulk)
