Finally moved mine out to the garage (it was sitting on the living room floor for a few weeks – the wife is pleased!).
Haven’t milled anything yet – still testing and dialing it in (have drawn a few things with a Sharpie). I have a lot to learn about CNC milling first.
The router is a Makita RT0700CX. I added the “MShoe” dust shoe, with a few pretty lights attached. It’s using 25mm chromed wardrobe rails (from Screwfix in the UK). They’re very thin walled but appear to be very rigid – let’s hope the chrome plating holds up.
The spindle is controlled via a relay from the D9 fan output. The original relay was rated at 240V/10A, but the smell of ozone was overpowering. I’ve added an outboard relay box and am waiting for a beefier relay to arrive.
Thank you very much for the fantastic design – can’t wait to get milling!
