Just won these on eBay!
I’ll bet most of you gave up on this build!
This will be for the main x-axis which will carry the gantry.
There’s enough resources (read money) left to buy the A xis motor, gear head, chuck and tailstock.
After that it’s back to the waiting-for-money game. :-(
If only the clerk at the 7-eleven would stop selling me the LOSING lottery tickets this would go faster.
Expected delivery March 27th
(I feel like a proud Papa)
Score another one for eBay!
This is a 100:1 planetary gear box with a NEMA 34 Stepper motor.
It will become the drive for my rotary A axis. that takes me from 200 steps per revolution to 20,000 steps per revolution. SWEET! And for the auction price of $72, it can’t be beat.
This should arrive in the next week or so.
