    You could always try Tiging the opening then drilling out the size you want.

    Hi Tom

    I'm about to start on a CNC for myself. did you ever post a video of this? how did the chain drive workout? I was thinking of using timing-belts. The 640/570 oz steppers: that seams a bit heavy duty to me, was there a reason for using big motors like that?
    what would you do different / any tips you can give me.
    what stepper drivers did you use?


    Thanks
    Peter

    hi Tom.

    Wow looks like a great job. seems like a lot of work has gone into getting such a quality machine. well done
    Im looking into building a bigger table and have been scanning over many different designs and this concept has some great characteristics. I'm thinking of going for a chain drive as i think it will be the easiest/cheapest way to work the x axis but i was just a bit unsure if the chain drive system was very accurate when using it as a router table or if it had any play/racking in the axis.
    By looking at one of your first plasma tables it looks like you have continued with using the #35 3/8 chains and sprockets, do you feel that this is a big enough chain size for a router table of this size? or did you have any problems in general with the chain drive system at all?

    Cheers and what a nice job on your machines they all look great.

    Indeed.
    That should work just fine.
