Ever need some extra support for your oversized payload? I got you covered.
I’m working on some suspension for my 80mm spindle. I haven’t fully gotten this machine working, but I didn’t think it was right to ask a stepper to hold up the 11lb behemouth by itself. I thought I’d bring in a 15lb gas spring.
I haven’t designed the tool holder yet, but here’s a picture of the Z-Axis supporting the spindles weight without the help of the stepper.
More to come.
