Plasma Build | Other Pictures

by on Monday, March 21st, 2011

I just took some additional pictures of some of the aspects that are not really clear in other pictures.

this first one shows the z-axis lead screw and placement of the stepper motor.

This one show the gear box from a overhead shot.


Plasma Build | Testing the z-axis

Since I only have the hardware for the z-axis at the moment I can only test this out for now. Here is a video of this testing until I get the timing belts for the other axis’.

the Test Video

the speed of the movement is slowed down for control and should rapid at a maximum of 135 in/min

The other axis will rapid a bit faster. I should have some more video later this week of the other axis’ moving.

Plasma Build | Progress report

by on Sunday, November 21st, 2010


The last two weeks have been kind of slow as far as progress. I started off with ordering some of the steel to make the leg section of the table. This included the 2 x 3 inch rectangular tube  and the 1/4 x 2 flat stock used for the mounting pads. I am making the leg section in a way that I can disassemble and move it with ease. So the legs are all bolted together using a piece of 1/4 by two 5 inches long with either four drilled holes or four tapped holes.
