Ok, can't believe it's been since last November, man how time flies!!!!!

Got a few pics to show, but nothing earth shattering, lol! Just a few of the X axis brushes, magnetic dust boot, home switches (X axis is  adjustable along the T slot extrusion) , relay outlets, axis labels (cheezy, I know but what the hell  ;) ), and some new clamps (how exciting!!!). Even a cover for her as well  ;D

I've actually run a few projects too (you saw the Project Search sign), including a magnetic dust boot and 3C collet holder for my 9" South Bend, so now the collets will all stay nice and clean. Router seems to be very accurate, and I'm VERY pleased to say the least. I owe it all to the fine folks here and the other forums I belong to for helping me learn my way through this addicting hobby.

Still have to come up with a dust cyclone and a bracket/slide for a vac hose setup. Also wish I could weld so I could weld up a nice solid bench as well.

Thanks again for looking-
Dave

Wow Dave, that looks really great! My only complaint is that in pic #8, the machine really gets in the way.
I like the way you mounted the laser in permanently. I had thought about doing the same with a camera, but never got around to it. Maybe one day. Keep the pics commin, the sign you made looked great.

VERY nice Dave !
A St. Pauli Girl and your machine compliment one another quite nicely.
Fine job.

That looks way too neat Dave - really nice job you have done.

I thought Sam would notice #8  ;D ;D

Hey, I stared at Daves machine just as much. Is that wrong? I just can't help it. Those linear rails, the neat cable tray, T-slot table, the way that dust shoe snaps right on, it's just sensory overload... I could talk about the woman too, but it probably would not be forum appropriate. :)

Awful Pretty... I'm just confused with the X & Y axis labeling and directions, backwards in my world. But I do like the workmanship, just too damn clean and shinny, lol

How are those labels made? They are eye catching.

Pretty!!!  I love the router too.  ;D  I do have a question though.  How much does the cover expand when it inhales or is the pic taken with it fully expanded and if so how much will it contract when it exhales?

Looks really good Dave!
