Two new videos added to the videos page. Plan on making another video about how I am getting on with my CAD files for the body, arms, neck and eyes soon.

Ordered a CNC machine on the weekend.

SM6090 table top CNC router 3 axis. I had them change the round linear rails to HIWIN square linear rails and added DSP USB control. Is running a 2.2kw water cooled spindle. Also has the tray and liquid spray unit.



I will be using this to make a lot of parts for the body, arms neck and eyes.
I will also look into making molds for other parts on Wall-E.

Ordered from Stepmores.com
