Today I took some more photos of my machine. I haven't worked how to put a video up as it dosn't to be supported. As I have previously stated, I have plenty of info on the wiring and some of the construction etc

If you would like some help just say so.

Bruce , to make a long story short my job requires me to dismantle
and trash various lab grade machines . Incubators , centrifuges , microscopes
biopsy machines , samplers etc etc etc .
A fair amont of these have steppers and ballscrews and lineair
bearings and drivers , power supply's , planetary gearboxes , dc micromotors ....
I really have an overabundance of those . An example are these rotating nut steppers ,
I must have at least 30 of them .

So for years it's been in the back of my head to use this material
to design and build the "perfect" router . Overdimensioned , over engineered
with every feature included I can possably think of .

As your router is capable of machining steel , it must be very wel designed .
and ridgid . Most routers I've seen won't even machine aluminium .
Hence I'de like to know more about the mechanical construction .

I the upload of the pictures keeps failing , I can pm you with my email
adress ?

More than happy to help you out and provide guidance in terms of how I went about my build.
I haven't been able to up load more detailed photos.

If you can provide an email address, I can provide photos, wiring diagrams and some construction drawings.

I have built two other routers for others who had started and were not getting anywhere. Over all, as a project it is not difficult however, you need to decide just what you want to do and then design for it using what is available.
