Hi Lads

I am in the process of converting my 626 milling machine to CNC Big Grin

Work done so far ,,

Picked up a couple of 8mm pitch/20mm timing pulley's tother day for the Z axis .

Part machined up the mounting block for the Y axis nut to see how much room i had left to fit the Z lead screw pulley .

I can turn the nut 90 deg that would give me another 7 mm to play with . Wont look as nice Slaphead

I was never impressed with the section of casting that houses the Z axis bearings , and there was not allot i could do with it as it is to fit the new bearings ect ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, so i removed the offending lump Popcorn

Just as a matter of interest Rob did things move much with the web removed JawdropJawdropJawdrop

Hey Rob - just started reading the prelude on Mad Modder. So far it is looking good and I am looking forward to reading the rest. I really should visit that site more often.

Too bad I didn't know you were up in NCL. I would have dropped in when I was there. I'll look you up next time!


Cheers for looking in Lads Big Grin

I will try and make it interesting Popcorn

The casting did not move when i chopped out that section John Thumbsup

Mayhem ,,,,,,,,,,,,,If your ever in the area feel free to call in Thumbsup



Evening Lads

The two lugs that i had left on the casting will be used to mount the new Z axis bearing support Popcorn

Using my HZ arbour vertically allowed me to reach into the casting to machine the lugs . Big Grin
