The second machine - Intro
this is how the machine looks like today (Sep 2007). I started building
it in April 2000 and it'll probably never be completely finished....
There will always be something I want to add or improve
upon. Next up will probably be to add an extra pair of linear bearings
on the Z-axis to increase rigidity and perhaps a cable chain for the spindlemotor
power and coolant hoses.
Here's some short technical data:
