Thanks to many folks on this site giving lots of input - particularly Tom Myers, I am now ready to build my table. I have all the components to build a table like Tom’s including the 15mm belts, pulling and guides.
I have a lot of parts printed but lots more to go. It took me a while to get over the learning curve for my new Tronxy X5SA 330x330x400 printer.
I just received my laser cutter printer. It has a working area of 820mm x 480mm. It only has 30W but I plan to change it to 40W. This will me make some custom accessories for the lowrider2.
The most expensive part of the build was actually the stainless steel gantry bars. $250. The total cost so far on just the Lowrider2 is about $1,400. More than anticipated but I did go with an aide cooked spindle and inverter as well as the 15mm belt components.
I look forward to starting the 6 x 7 foot table. Hopefully finish it next week. I am planning to going with a weirdest steel base.
