    Blue painters tape and superglue, or just screw the board to the waste board.

    Sry my frend but i don’t like temporary staff.

    You’d be surprised at how well it holds.  Sometimes there’s no other way to hold something down.  I wouldn’t do this with a full sheet of wood, but for something I can’t have extra holes in, this works really really well.  The way is works is blue tape on the spoil board and on the piece of aluminum.  Run a squiggly line of glue on one piece of tape and spray glue kicker on the other piece.  Push them together and taa daa!  You can see one of my alignment holes in the spoil board.  I run the router across the board and drill a couple holes and put a couple broken end mills in as a guide.  Keeps the aluminum parallel with the axis.

    Very professional looking. You’ll have to carve a sign for it.

    Wow! All our mpcncs are going to be jealous that they don’t get to live in such fine conditions. If you’re 3d printing that will be a great enclosure. If you’re milling then prepare to get it dirty fast!

    Okay, stop it, now I am getting jealous. I have been trying to work on my ZenXY and have been stuck with emails, accounting, and the forums for almost 5 hours already…There is a hotrod show 1/4mile from me next to the coffee shop. If you don’t here from me again I traded the company for a hotrod, I will start a TV show touring the globe in it visiting all the cnc builds … peace out.

    I need small help. My MPCNC will be self squaring or I say it wrong I don’t won to square it each time. i won to desine some rigid end sop holder (bouncer). And I need this to dimension when you move your gentry all the way in corner. what space we have between corner and sliders

    I printed a part from thingiverse that clipped over the tube, so it was easily removable. It was on the other side though, the side with the DeWalt tool. I just spent a few minutes looking for it and I can’t find it. I can take a pic of the ones I have and give you a length if you want.

    That was probably my favorite mpcnc upgrade. Very easy to use and had an immediate impact on quality.

    Make pic but also can you measure this distant like on picture where nothing is colliding. As close as you can move them. it will be very helpful.

     

    Other thing..

    I check my router and it is without speed controller. So I’m thinking about buying spindle. Somebody was using spindle ?? I should look for water cooled or air, and what power?

     

    And Yes…

    Im still working on machine:D sleep 3 hours. But I can’t put it together because I’m waiting for parts. I will start cutting pipes today. And clean up plastic parts.

     

    If I will use contractor laser with build function for square you think that this can help with squaring feet mounts.

    I don’t have my MPCNC assembled anymore, I’m 100% low rider now. They are two sizes one is 111mm and one is 96mm. They just clip on and off, so if you have a printer, you can easily print them after your machine is assembled. They go on the side with the router, not the side you pointed out in your image.

    w.r.t. the router, you can get a router AC speed controller (they are about $20 here in the US).

    I would also point out that the machine is very easily modified. Just remind yourself that you don’t have to have the “final” machine done before you make any cuts.

    This will be to big ? Or perfect

    Ok I’m starting with feet position.

    Ryan I have question to calculator that you provide. Minimum table width and depth there is some space behind legs or its exactly so feet are on table:)  because I’m in box I need to be quite exactly and I need to make space for drag chain.

    #41349

    Depends on your definition of exactly, it is really close the edge of the feet. I did not build in room for a drag chain on the calculator.

    I suggest wire loom instead of drag chain. Drag chain has a lot of drag and is a great place for dirt to accumulate.

    #41350

    Ok bro 😀 I will do like you say. my inside dimension in my box is 1600×1500  then I will go with 1240×1200 working area should be ok.

    +1 for no drag chain. I printed mine, but it never worked very well, and it would occasionally come apart, and I’d have to watch it anyway.

    what you guys think about this spindle that I show link 800w should be ok for most of the miling. (95% wood)

    I’ve never tried anything but the dewalt 660 and the dewalt 611. You won’t be able to use all 800W, so that’s more than a little overkill. Wood isn’t terribly particular, you should be fine.

    So big, but those colors are nice…I am going to have to do a new render just like that.

    I think the alignment thing that Jeffeb3 was talking about is this one from thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1755510 the MPCNC Alignment Checker. They are for US conduit size though.

    It’s big but I’m surprise how stiff this gentry is on middle of work space. Everything its fit snug and smooth so I’m really satisfied. I fix stl for nuttrap so it can hold M3 snug and I think that I will go thru all files and fix that. But first I need to make some endstop holders for squaring machine, and some dust shoe.

    Thanks that you was looking for that but I drop that idea because I have enclosure it will be hard for me to put in on and off all the time its better with some fix solution that it will work and make workflow easy.

    You’d leave it on all the time. It is sized to the wasted space.

    Ok so little update. I got some of electronic so probably I will start today assembling that. I put on my gentry holders for my Dustshoe.IMG_0896
