READ MORE ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MACHINE BELOW
Starting with the base, a solid ¼” thick steel plate with four domed feet welded on the bottom. This gives a solid platform to build from, the four feet allow it to sit level and all corners touch on various surfaces. Our machine operates so smoothly it does not need to be bolted to anything. We don’t even provide mounting holes, it is just not necessary. Set it down on your bench (or buy one of our custom stands) and go to work!
The back bone of the machine is 4 pieces of 2x2x1/4” square tubing. The manufacturing seam that extends the inside length of the tubing must be removed so the smaller tubing slides smoothly in and out. Our developed process accurately removes the weld seam, leaving a smooth precise finish end to end.
The back bone is then welded in a fixture that holds it true and square. Thus, creating the H shaped weldment that is accurately aligned and welded (not bolted) to the base plate. At this point, we have created a solid base structure for your machine.
The tracking wheel tube, platen plate tube and work table tube are all made from 1 ½ x 1 ½ x 3/16 square tubing. We chose this because it matches the 2x2 tubing radius that it is sliding into and gives the most surface contact inside the tube. 3/16 is overkill for this application but it is the better fit. A ¼” wall tube has extensive radius on the outside corners lessening the flat contact surface inside the mating tube, potentially causing tracking inconsistencies.
