Re: New nema23 and bearings mount

You can buy the idlers from inventables. Just look in the makerslide section. That's where I got mine.

Re: 1200x1200 build/mod

My HDPE came in so I cut the bearing mounts for the shaft drive. http://powercordlabs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/bearing-mount-e1348022075543-224x300.jpg http://powercordlabs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/mounted-motor-e1348022107386-300x229.jpg My drag chain showed up with my new power supply....

Bearing Mount

I cut a bearing mount this evening on my X2.
Image
For convenience, I cut it all with a 1/8 end mill. The final version will be drilled to allow for mounting with M3 or whatever handy little screws I have in the bin.

Re: 1000mm Y and double X

If you'd prefer to have a box, I found that Amazon has a selection in boxes - free shipping if you have prime. I picked up a box of 100 m5 10mm for about $6 to my door. :)

Re: 1200x1200 build/mod

On friday I built some motor spacers for the dual belt drive. I had some leftover 6061 rod from my other cnc mill, so it was just a matter of cutting it down, turning the ends, center drilling them and then tapping them for m5. The original mill called for hex bar, but I've had good luck with the ro...

Re: Is the z motor mount delrin?

argh.
Slight delay on this as my power supply has gone out. I've ordered a new used 24v supply to get my other cnc going.
Meanwhile, I also forgot that I'd broken all my 1/8" end mills on my mill...
I think I'll use the extra days to get some 1/4" hdpe rather than cutting down the 1/2" I have.

Is the z motor mount delrin?

Is the z motor mount delrin? I'm going to make some bearing holders for my dual belt drive and I'd like to use the same material. I was going to mount my motor on spacers and use a zero backlash to connect the rod to the motor. However I just realized that I can simply place my shaft drive in place ...

http://powercordlabs.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/mecha-shapeoko.jpg I'd ordered a set of new plates from Edward, but the post office is being slow so I mounted my makerslide to the Misumi rail I purchased. Note the doubled X slides. I stole the spacers from the idler wheels to make it all work. ...
