00:04 I begin by cutting a piece and compare the measurements to the SVG file.
00:54 More testing.
01:29 Testing with a dial gauge.
2.16 Comparing t2 and t2.5 belts. The machine currently uses a neoprene belt reinforced with fibreglass. It stretches under the load and I am going to use t.25 polyurethane, steel reinforced belt instead. This may mean I need to change the pulleys on the stepper motor as well.
03:10 Painting waste board with wet rot hardener.
04:06 Drilling out new pulleys on lathe.
05:17 Replacing pulleys on x and y axis.
06:27 Threading timing belt.
07:23 Checking cut with v bit, cutting 100mm square on path with vector line.
07:53 Cutting a relief of the maker slide and checking changes.
08:11 Bizarre software problem. Cutting on path with Easel is a lot more accurate than cutting on either side of the vector line.
I have a new channel called educating savvas where you will find this video with Nathan from Opentronic. Along with discussions and other tangential videos which don’t fit the current channel format, I will also migrate future CNC related videos there.
