Just like Tom says.
Don't worry about understanding it 100% up front.
I didn't, as evidenced by my build thread.
The more you get behind you, the easier the rest becomes.

Looks like middle of January I should be able to get a good start on this. (hopefully). Heavy production going on right now and a home show coming up between Christmas and New years.

A key element in this will be the ability to create my chevron dovetail drawers. Based on this years usage I should save way more than the cost of the machine in less than a year. Then I need to install a lazer head on it for engraving. Has anyone done this?

Trying to get the reading and research done up so I don't ask too many dumb questions.

The only dumb question is the one you don't ask. We all need help at times.

Once you get started, everything will fall in place. If it doesn't we will make sure they do

Thanks for the help.

This is why a laser is important to me. We logo all of our drawers and like the clarity of a laser.

Electric parts needed.

Trying to make sense of this.

If I order the kits from CVS : RB01, Basic control box, 4 motors and power supply, Is this what I need to wire it up or are there additional items such as the Geckos, etc?

Copied from Metalheads electric kits post:

If your looking for Electic Parts, review this thread and shoot me a PM. I have Motors, PS , Basic Electric Kits, Remotes, PMDX and Driver boards.

The BC01,GB01,RB01 is $1249.12 delivered in the lower 48 states.

MC01 - 4-640 oz Motors and 1 Matched power supply $595.00 delivered in the lower 48 states
.


You would still need to get the flexible wire from him to wire everything up.

BTW, you're post on the other forum about buying a separate laser is spot on.
Trying to make the MM do too much makes it like a shopsmith.....does a lot of stuff but none of it as well as it could.

Thanks Darren. Sent a pm to Metalhead. Not all of it is listed on the CVS site so I was confused.

How is the end of January looking for you if I make a quick trip down?

Anytime, Pete.
I agree Mikes stuff can be a little confusing. Some CVSsupply website work would probably help sales....(Hint...)
Give me a few days notice and we're on, but you shouldn't feel like the trip is necessary to achieving a working MM...

Had a nice visit with Pete this afternoon.
V-carved his logo into a piece of 1/2" BB plywood.
Hopefully he'll be along to post some of the pics he took after he gets back home from vacation.

Vacation is over.

Great visiting with you and your Bride, Darren. Haven't uploaded the pics yet. Showed them off while in Wichita. We ended cutting across and staying at the Lodge of the 4 seasons in Lake Ozark for a couple of days.

Darren was the perfect teacher. I don't understand though how he keeps his woodshop so clean.

Getting closer.

Well it's now 2 years later and looks like it's time to get back at this.
I bought the electronics and bent parts from Darren Sayler over a year ago and promptly got swamped. Then I started building ukuleles. Seeing more need for this machine.

Primary payback will be doing the 45deg dovetail drawers. Our current supplier is backlogged 4-5 weeks and we just can't wait that long.
Maybe this time.

Going back through this thread, the pix are missing. That is the best reason to actually upload the pix and not just reference them elsewhere. Oh well.

I know that. Just my attempt at humor.

Does the concept of building the gantry and getting it working first still hold true? Sounds like a good way to go.

Welcome back.
I built the table first then used it as a workbench.
Then again I did not have a workbench or a lot of room to work in.
