Hi guys !
I've been inspired by the design shown here
I'm a beginner non machinist & don't know how to use Solidworks yet (i'm having troubles with my graphics).
You can see my idea in the drawing below it's a very basic/crappy MS Paint drawing... i hope you'll understand !
I want to make the bearings of the right side adjustable by excentric for preload but will have to mod the design a bit...Any help ?
I don't know the effect of hardned steel bearings rolling on an iron dovetail, i'm thinking to use grey iron machined from solid. What do you think ?
How much will it cost in a basic machine shop ? (aprox price or expensive/lowcost or hours of work)
I want to build a cnc knee mill the size of an X2/X3 and use this design for XYZ, the mill will be cast aluminium. What do you think ?
The cool thing about this design is that you can lengthen/shorten it to suite your needs, IMHO.
Any input is much apreciated.
