Basic laser cutter than can be made with standard shop tools.
I finally found more time to work on this and the Y axis is now complete, I just need to test it with an Arduino just to check that its moving OK with a stepper.
I finally got around to designing the belt clamps that will attach to the bottom of my X axis gantry plates. This is a simple design and will only require 2 screws to keep the belts tight and in place.
I will be machining these out of HDPE.
Well after the other company still not responding after 2 and a half weeks I contacted Makerslide europe and made the order with them, the next day it was sent out and is on the way to me.
As soon as I cut this down it can be installed and I can make progress on the gantry sides, the laser carriage and the automatic Z axis focus.
