My new CNC mill. JEH Guitars
« on: March 30, 2009, 09:08:47 AM »
I have used and uses a step-four mill for manufacturing Guitars ( www.jens-h.dk)

It was beginning to be to little and slow for my needs, and there was also some issues in stability.
I desided to build my own, designed to my needs. 
Data:
X=1050mm;Y=450mm;z=150mm (can handle the outline of a guitar.)
Ball guides and ball spindels.
Feed > 5000 mm/min.
Servo motors for loops feadback (I have destroyed som guitarbodys because of losing steps) nema23 DCservo.

Here is some pictures.
The construction drawing












I have run the machine with the motors, and the axis work well up to 7000mm/min. They are very strong. I have some problems with the limits switch, but the disapear when I change cable to screened cable.
Know I only have to do the final alignments, and get to know the software.

Hi Jens,

The machine looks beautiful, thanks for sharing the build pics.

Browsed your website as well, looks like some nice stuff you're producing, just wish I could read the language, lol!

Thanks,
Dave

Thank you all.

Yes my costumers are only Danish at the time, and they are happy to follow there projects in danish  :) .

The mill is a KRESS 1050. I have good experience with the KRESS 800, so I desided to go for this one. (1050 watt)

Here is some pictures taking yesterday. Here is the KRESS mounted.

The Pink color is only protection cover.

Sounds like you're not entirely happy with the color pink? I'm still stuck in the 80's (guitarwise!) and I love the guitars from that era as you can see in my picture.....lol!

Thanks for sharing, it looks great- 8)

By the way, I'm thinking I should start a guitar thread since we have a few fans here  ;D

Dave, I sold a similar guitar to the one on the left a few years ago. Had an awesome orange/black crackle finish. I've got an old homebuilt pink guitar in the garage, waiting to be cannibalized one day when i find time to build a new one.
