From this view of the gantry you can see where the router mounts, the tracking hardware and the z-axis stepper motor.
It’s a wonderful thing to have friends. In this case we’re talking about Neil being a friend of Nova Labs. Recently he moved to the U.S. and will be moving overseas again soon. With all this moving about he decided that taking his CNC mill with him was just too much hassle. So what did he do? He found a community of people much like himself who he knew would take good care of his baby. Neil will colocate his mill with Nova Labs and we’re very appreciative.
Today Neil borrowed a truck and delivered the disassembled mill. We will need to build a 4’x8′ bench after which Neil will help us assemble and position it. The mill has a horizontal cutting area of 2′ x 4′ and a vertical travel distance of 6″. It’s a complete system save the computer which we have several of. Hopefully in early July we’ll be in business.
As with all our CNC tools, people are champing at the bit to start using it.
Thank you, Neil!
