I’ve made a new friend in the village, just a short walk away. Enter the scene Matt, who has a full on CNC setup at home and is very smart!
So with help from Matt and Nick I’m well on my way, with borrowed step controllers, Arduino, laptop and motor. The Internet is also a great source of information for this kind of thing, so I’m hoping to have something that moves very soon!
Pulleys, belts and taper locks are on order, and I have a plate marked out for mounting the motor.
Watch this space….
