Milestones Reached!

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.
