I got a little bit more done this weekend. I mounted the the linear scale on the ram, wired the motors, valve and started tuning the motors and valve. I still need to mount the home and limit switches. I got everything tuned pretty good. I can move the ram up and down several times and have it repeat within .0005. It is not real fast but it will get the job done. I even bent a piece of scrap I had laying around. I took a short video of the ram doing some 1" moves. I will post it up shortly. Hopefully next weekend I can totally finish this thing up up a bend a bunch of stuff. I will take a good video of the machine when I get it all running.

I still need to tidy up all the wire once everything is final.




I know I said i was going to use a Newall SPB-TS encoder but I was running out of cash and this accu-rite was half the price. They are both 5 micron scales.

I got a little bit more done on it tonight. I finished wiring the limit and home switches. Here is a quick video of the back gauge in action.

Good going. When do we expect to see it doing some bending.

Today I bent up a tray for the computer to sit on and made a articulating arm for it to mount to. I still need to figured out how to get the backgauge to home in the dynomotion software. Everything is written in C+ and I don't know jack about it.

Excellent work. What's the gauge of sheet and what's the bend radius.
