Well done.
It feels good when the smoke stays inside.

Wild Kingdom around here... and still working on 4th axis

Finishing up the mount for my 4th axis. It lets me drop the center of rotation to roughly even with the top of my spoilboard and in front of the machine. Should be able to turn up to a 15cm x 120cm cylinder, which is much more than I need for my application. Hope to have it finished today or tomorrow and will get some pics up for ridicule! I'm sure there is an easier way to do it.

Anyway, when I came in to my shop yesterday after being in New York all week, I found that I had unauthorized tenants. Loud, angry tenants. A nesting pair of Carolina wrens had set up a nest in an old amplifier I have on a shelf and proceeded to hatch their family. They take a dim view to my banging, cutting, welding, grinding near their home so I have been fussed at for two days. For a little bird, they have a very loud tweet! Also, I checked one of my game cameras that I have mounted back behind my shop. I have been trying to capture some of the deer that wander through, but I caught a sneaky bobcat instead! No wonder my German and Australian Shepherds go crazy when I let them out into my fenced in back yard at night. Okay, back to it.

4th axis pics

Here is the 4th axis installed. Need to drill and tap for 4 more M10 bolts and get a longer M12 bolt for the alignment adjustment. Both head and tailstock can be moved on the rails and are both easily removable to get out of the way and store if not being used.
