    Be sure to make a welder attachment so when it gets done machining the tank it can weld the area that needs repaired

    Khalid,

    A very few miles from me are several geothermal wells - wonder if they'd be interested in something like this? (Power companies here have lots of $$)

    i don't think so they would show any interest at all.. Those rich guys acquire services from expert agenciew having all tools tackles...

    machine is being tested/calibrated today. We will start machining one of the cavity tomorrow.

    20 cm is a super deep cut in steel. Show pictures when done.

    Default 1st test run and first cut

    Thanks Michael,
    I forget the embroidery stuff... Sometime when i have time i shall do all embroidery stuff with Arduino itself...

    Here are few picture of 2" x 2" x 20mm deep slot we did with this machine. We have mounted hydraulic spindle 300RPM maximum used 4 flute 19mm end mill. Job took 35Minutes...
    The spindle had play in the bearing which caused some marks on the work piece walls but those are nothing ...However we are satisfied with the result.. We shall do mockup testing and evaluate the timings...
    Video of the job to come..
