The arrival of parts

Finally getting some parts so I can start working on the cutter.  Last week I received the v-bearings and skate bearings.  Today I received all the extruded frame, v-groove rails, toothed pulleys and belt.  I started assembling the frame but the stuff is pretty hard to work with.  The t-nuts want to slide all over the place so it’s like building some strange 3-d puzzle that keeps wanting to shift and get out of square.  I’ll have pictures of the assembly in another post.  For now, here are a few pictures of the parts I have gotten so far.

Oh yeah, and Misumi has a pretty amazing catalog, I highly recommend requesting one.  Free catalog, absolutely huge and chocked full of all kinds of interesting bits and pieces.  Came with a printed catalog and a digital catalog on two CD.
