    Man.. subbing to threads doesn't help. I need to keep them in open tabs and read the updates. I just read this one but I can't remember anything from before :D Looking at the variety of parts you are showing, this is definitely going to be a fun build.

    Nice road sign btw!

    :D Sorry to confuse you.

    Someone get my parade permit. I did some electronics stuff...and it worked!

    -Strip rulers with a strong magnet under the tray is great for solder clamping.
    [​IMG]
    -Anyone wanna check my math? -Should be 2800ohm.
    [​IMG]
    -Egad, what a snug fit. I added a goop of hot glue in the middle to avoid shorting.
    [​IMG]
    -I just finished plugging these in and giving them a spin...successfully. :eeek: So I have the motor part done. No pic of the inside of the connectors because getting them together is like changing a lightbulb while balancing on the back of your cat. -I suck at analogies.
    [​IMG]
    -I do like how 80/20 pack. The insides were divided by paper and wrapped tight with packing cellophane. When I cut the cello, I thought I heard that noise a Coke makes.
    [​IMG]
    -OK, I have frame. I just gotta get some stuff to put it together. I had a wad of 1/2" square nuts, but it turns out I need to grind a bevel on the edges to get them in the slots.
    I also need some motion hardware... Yeah, that stuff might be handy.

    -OK, possible change of plans. After some suggestions from @Nealieboyee, I'm beefing the design up a little. The downside is that it triples the amount of bracket shenanigans. :lol: I still need to look into if Mach lets you flip the Y motor direction.
    [​IMG]
    -I got a few pulley wheels cut. I got a beauty friction fit on the bearing.
    [​IMG]
    -And here's-CAMERA! FFS! FOCUS ON THE THING IN THE FRONT!-two halves assembled with the bearings.
    [​IMG]
    -I'm running out of this junkyard polycarb. This is supposed to be a router mounting bracket...
    [​IMG]
    ...but she's so lose you want to use a whole can of Lysol on the car seat after taking her home. :/ I don't know what happened. I even have the micrometer reading written on the router. I'm getting really bad at that.

    Mach 3 should let you flip the Y axis motor direction, no problem.

    Thanks! :D
    Tangents are all part of the project for me.
    Thanks again . I knew you could reverse the Z, but it's kinda different. -I still gotta check since I'm getting paranoid from all the mistakes I'm making.

    Thanks...? :hehe:
    "Demented" might be more appropriate since it can explain all the forgetfulness. :lol: As for the genius bit, that is just my 'dramatic role' on the internet.
    -I did some forensic math. The router is roughly 1.5", and the part is 1.75". So I can chalk this one up to the dyslexia. I've been using the wrong quarter-division of an inch since I started cutting boards as a wee thing.

    Returning once again with the new nickel/dime posting format:
    [​IMG]
    -So I made some new router mounts, and deliberately made them undersized. The micrometer was telling me it was slightly oblong, so I went with the median where it was supposed to be. I definitely didn't want another oversize part, after all.
    What you are seeing above is a bracket clamped down for modification. (Don't judge my clamping. Toilet t-slot bolts, paint sticks, and tile spacers work very well.)
    I had to cut slots near the base to relax the clamping a bit. I could get the router in the part, but the base was bowing. SNUG.
    [​IMG]
    -You can see by the hack-sawed lugs that she was SUPER snug. I added some set screws and plan to add screws to the lugs, but I doubt it needs any more SNUGNESS.
    Now for some more household archaeology finds...
    [​IMG]
    -I found my Dad's old computer textbooks. I thought you might be amused. -Also I need to pad my post a bit. :/
    [​IMG]
    -What?
    Anyway, I managed to pull the trigger on the Chinese parts. Let's all anxiously await their arrival... in a couple of months. :worried:

    I stand corrected. That stuff got here so fast, one box overshot Texas and landed in Memphis. :lol:
    So...where am I?
    [​IMG]
    -One nice thing about polycarb: You can do stuff like this to get into that normally un-tappable tab.
    [​IMG]
    -I really don't need much clamping force, but there it is. I added some socket head screws to the shopping list.
    [​IMG]
    -I milled this out for a Z motor mount. Earlier I chopped up 1/2" acetal sticks and leveled one side.
    [​IMG]
    -Here it is with a lot of drilling and tapping done. Currently all I have for metric screws are what came in some kind of 'sampler kit' I picked up in a vacant rental. Needles to say, I'm using as much imperial as I can. Metric tap and drill stuff is really tough to get here.
    [​IMG]
    -Then the other day I got this weird pickle sculpture.
    [​IMG]
    -Inside: MORE packing, and like, half a roll of tape.
    [​IMG]
    -And MORE- wait...Hemp?
    [​IMG]
    -Ok, a lot of oily dirt mixed with blood, and a 2nd box today, and I have most of it. There's a few mixed up quantities, but I can get measurements confirmed and start adjusting the 3d model.
    [​IMG]
    -For now, everything gets a de-greasing and Texas Tea bath. It's not as noxious as the normal Chinese lube. -That stuff that smells like cigarettes and paint, but it's still rough to inhale.

    I think in another life I was a magnet, as I'm very attracted to metal :eyebrow: :naughty:
