    My next project

    Here is a picture of the next project that I'm about to tackle:




    I've got to remove all the parts that can be used on our other machine and then scrap the rest. So much fun! I can't wait to start!

    That looks like a great project. Lots there to keep you interested. Take a few photos while you are tearing it down. Mike.

    Wow Julie. You know there are quite a few forums for guys that want to build their own CNC machines and you have got a treasure chest full of parts there. Just thought I better throw that out there for your consideration.

    I appreciate the food for thought but I'm pretty sure that all of the parts are going to be crated up for spares to use on our other CNC machine. The only thing that will be left over will probably be the frame. Until I figure out how to haul it outta there. lol

    Basically a router for machining metal and such that's controlled by a computer.

    Julie, I know you said they are going to save what they need for toher machine. If that does not include the Allen Bradley controller do not scra it. You will be able to sell it on Ebay for more than scrap.
    Have fun.
