SO3 Extrusion Support Brackets

Post by madhatter » Sat Feb 17, 2018 8:11 pm

In this thread I mentioned brackets for the extrusions that have the same hole pattern as 1-2-3 blocks so the rails can be raised for thicker materials. Here are some pics of what I Was talking about. The dimensions are pretty much made up with exception of the 1-2-3 block hole spacing and extrusion fastener hole dimensions. It was mainly to get the idea out and get some constructive feedback on the design. I am thinking about getting these made for my XXL (depending on cost) because I have some projects in mind that has thick raw stock, but I Am not going to be cutting all the way through it (so the cantilevered forces on the spindle carriage would not be an issue). For instance, cutting a 3/4" - 1" deep relief image in a 4" thick mantelpiece. I am not going to cut through it, but I need the clearance.

How would you keep things square/parallel when moving the machine?

My plan is to use the Misumi T-slot plates mounted to a box beam base made of 3/4" - 1" MDF. That will give me one straight edge to start with, and with a good square I would like to think that I can get the other dimension square.
