Material is ordered. To make it simple milling the vacuum table while providing perfect surfaces at the top and bottom of each part, pre-milled aluminium has been ordered. And to make it a cheap vacuum table, we ordered remainders. The plates are much larger than required. On the one hand we have to cut them into pieces. On the other hand some material can be used for other projects. Just for your information, the remainders are more then double the material we need, but at about half the price.

Furthermore, we ordered some tools (0.2mm drills), the pneumatic connectors and the sealing mass.
