How the 1200kg machine arrived
Went through extensive cleanup and renovation:
First upgrade was the installation of a DRO, all mounts for slides are fabricated.
Eventually got tired of manual milling and went full on CNC-conversion
Shields deployed, program running.
Shields folded, rigging mode.
Custom built case for PC part and hybrid stepper drivers.
Lots of design and fabrication involved in this conversion, mainly Solidworks but some Fusion 360.
