This is another machine I have been tinkering on. I got busy for a while and had to set this build aside. Finally got back to getting the tool rack and spindle mounted and the macros written. This video shows a test run of some of those macros. The laser pointer (XYzero), toolchanges, tool measure and dustfoot interaction with all of the above. Ive cut a few small piece, but mostly parts for the grid table system. Speeds are reduced until I have full confidence in these mostly untested macros.
Table is aluminum with a grid of tapped holes on 3" centers. Table bolts, clamps, alignment jigs and maybe even some vacuum pucks are all intended to mount in various locations. A 3/4" MDF spoilboard with oversized holes is bolted over the aluminum.https://youtu.be/yszA3dqHn-0
