Well on the heels of the worst month ever as far as progress goes, I started on the rebuild of my CNC’s control box. This involves putting all the components of the CNC control box and the PC itself in to a single enclosure which will become the main HUB for the machine. I did this last time with my other machine only it was a table top controller and was made out of wood and sheet plastic. This version is a bit simpler as it’s just using a standard electrical pull box as its housing.
What’s nice about this is as well as consolidating all the components into a single enclosure, I’ll be wiring everything to a single AC input and breaking it out internally to the 3 power supplies that are needed to make it work. The above pic shows the front face plate that I 3D printed for the main power, the pump and the computer. The pics below shows the full assembly and that will be mounted to the pull box.
Have to admit I’m happy with how it turned out an hopefully over the next week or so I ‘ll be able to get this machine up and running again so I can finally stop moving backwards.
