Thanks for the reply Alex, much appreciated, looks as though there are a few making them now. I like the aluminium due to the weight factor, less chance of damage to the item being clamped compared to cast iron ones which are so heavy. They are however strong and seem to last for ever, and I've repaired a few very old ones over the years.Thanks againPeter
Thanks very much for the link to Carbatec. Have been on that site a few times never went to clamps though.
g'day I use similar TacTix containers from Bunnings here in Queensland.Cheap, good quality and very handy for lots of storage. They stack well, but you have given me an idea now to make easier access to them on my radio workbench. I have never seen those long Aluminium Sash Clamps before. Not here in OZ. Where did you get them, would be interested in how they compare in price to the original " T- shape " cast iron ones.
g'day well you have certainly created a very nice budget CNC.The use of the U-BOLTS AND BEARINGS is a BRILLIANT idea. One of the best I have seen yet. Keep up the excellent design and creation. I'll Vote. Peter

Thanks for this great Instructable the best Arduino one I have seen on the net.I will learn a lot from this and be able to finally get into Arduino. Thanks for the excellent documentation and visual explanation of programming. Very much appreciated.
thanks heaps for showing this I've been looking for ages for something similar since my w.e.p. Station died and I'm using parts from that to build desoldering and solder station with hot air gun. Will definitely be going in larger container, may reuse the old w.e.p. 3 in one unit housing. Will send pix when done. Thanks again for this.
