I am starting my machine, so I can the top profile of my Gold Prospecting Equipment Sluices. Only need about an inch of cut depth, from top of the stock, it being 2 inches thick. Some molds are bigger, so I am building a 20 by 45 work area. Using 6 extra support legs, to stiffen it up.
Printed Parts are in the way, making a list on the rest to get moving this next week.
Need to hit the scrap yard local and see if I can find a table, if not just build one.
Building the top out of a couple of sheets of Baltic Birch, using conduit.
The journey has began. Not my first rodeo, but more computer stuff than used to dealing with, but I’ll learn!
Wish me luck,Spike overlook my computer skills, any advise offered will be most welcome.

Those small orange things goes on the X and Y origin of the belt if you go for dual endstop config!July 11, 2019 at 12:30 pm #105868
I figured out for the belt, just not where, thanks!July 11, 2019 at 5:01 pm #105895
It sets your 0 point on the belt. So, if your standing at the “front” of the machine, X is left to right, Y is front to back. 0 is normally the front left corner. So those go on the X and Y 0 points. Basically give the Z assembly a quarter inch from the corners.July 16, 2019 at 3:38 pm #106311
Progress, waiting on rest of the parts!

You need some span supports on the long side. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1160962 I used the allthread feet in this one. Thread went up into the tube through a hole, then I ran a nylock up to the bottom of the tube, just enough to hold it in place so it didn’t sag.July 18, 2019 at 6:46 am #106459
I will be adding 6 of those supports.
Need someone to print them and a couple of motor brackets and a pen holder.
Anyone want to make them for me?
Can pay, or trade some mining equipment for them.
