My CNC build.

    The add of a plate was my first thought Robert, but since I do not want the bracket of the spindle to protrude from the side plates.
    Ideally I try to archive this:
    " Calculate or estimate where the center of gravity of the gantry will be located, including the spindle. Design your gantry side arms to compensate and place the center of gravity (CG) between the front and back X-axis linear bearings per arm. (CG should be located at ½ D4 and as close to X-axis lead screw as possible)"
    Photo is taken from this site:

    Very good info at this site, the guy has do a very good job!
    The good thing is that I haven't mount the side rails yet so I can adjust them, pull them more or less in frond of the bed.
    The way I am thinking to mount the wood for finger joints is with clamps vertical at the front of the bed.

    ...and heavy!!! Hahahah
    But if you want to cut soft metals the bridge must be heavy and we'll constructed, those two parameters will kill resonance the number one enemy of cnc machines.

    I like it is very aggressive, imagine the title" Kill the Resonance" will play with the " Soft metal cutters" .:lol:

    Cut the second base for the x axis motor,the right angle is from the aluminium beams,I cut the length I wanted and then separate the square to two angles,each one for each x axis motor.

    Thanks mate!
    Too much hot here those days, the workshop is like an oven and I feel like a chicken in the oven every time I get in there, also I am trying to make a proper schematic for my electronic box those days and finish a Jagstang I build for a friend, so there will be a little silent from my side those days,
    I hope everyone is doing well, stay safe guys!!!
    Over!

    Yes that's true, July and especially August is the month that we experience here temperatures high as 40-42 degrees C, this means 108F!!!
    Thanks Good , this year is not so hot yet!

    The guitar I build is a Jagstang, it is half Jaguar and half Mustang and was designed fro Kurt Cobain.
    Here are some pics, not the latest since I am too lazy those days to take pictures...

    Thanks you and all the other friends from the forum, for asking, with pm here orFb.
    Things are difficult here, many dead people and many other lost their houses.
    We still give a fight and we all must stand strong for the families that lost their people and we cry for the kids that died with such a tragic death.
    Four fires at the same time, with gust of wind at 55 mile/ hour ,it is not something that just happens.. .
    Thanks again everyone.

    Edit: I forgot to mention that me and my family ,we are all OK .
