Some of you may be wondering what is going on with the vacuum forming table and the CNC router. For the past few Saturdays we’ve had a small team working on both. The CNC router now has a table that gets it off the ground and at working height. The work remaining is to hook up the electronics and computer. We need to find a computer first, no easy task since it needs one with a parallel port. We might have one, but it needs attention. The vacuum forming machine still needs a lot of work. The cart and most of the metal fabrication is done. The lift linkage needs a couple more hours. Then we need to complete the oven, electrical, vacuum system, and the wood case. Possibly two more Saturdays. Maybe three.
The wiki entries for the vacuum forming table and CNC router has been updated to reflect the status of each.
