On Saturday we hooked up the computer and all the electronics for the CNC router. We ran a quick motion test and it worked! We still need to work out a mounting setup for the computer system, but it should be ready for the first project. We were also able to complete the metal fabrication for the vacuum forming machine. I was excited to finally see the linkage work. The action is smooth, but the system is heavy. We are considering our options, including a counterweight system. But that can come later as not to delay progress! Next is the vacuum system and the electrical hookup. I don’t know if we can work next weekend since the welding class is in the afternoon and the Instructables event is in the evening.
