There are another few things i could do to mount & brace it, & I could possibly go a little shorter on the stroke making it more compact. I have some workpiece hold down T-Track coming on the slow boat, and some nice black metal work-piece clamps for the T-track, hopefully I can get carving in the New Year. Another milling surface/workpiece holder is also in design. I need to source a nice flight case for the thing.
I'm also mulling over the X/Y bed arrangement seeing if I can shave its size down, currently it has a 400mm 3030 profile as a base from one axis with one linear rail in the same arrangement I have on the modular 3030 bed, but I have some short 200mm pieces i could swap over, as this XY will be vertical I also need to think about changing the belt drive for leadscrews or ballscrews.
I have two different twin linear guide setups, one more heavy duty than the other, so it makes sense to try to use it, combined with the other single rail 3030 setup as they interlock, due to the carriage having a slot exactly 30mm for the profile to click into. Pics of this have already been uploaded in previous posts.
