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.
