Introduction: How to Make a Five-in-One Mini Wood Working Machine

About: Makeblock was founded in 2012 as the world's first open-source robot and programing platform. With more than 400 mechanical components, electronic modules, and software tools, we are determined to bring meanin…

Recently,I found myself so into wood making. Therefore, on the 18th Maker Marathon of Makeblock holding on Nov. 28th, I decided to DIY a mini wood-working machine which covers the functionalities of the lathe, drill machine, a milling machine, grinder, and sawing machine.

Most parts are from:

Step 1: Assemble the Crank.

Using threaded rod to drive the thread-drive beam, the crank comes with high precision;

Step 2: Assemble the Motion Platform of Y-axis

Step 3: Assemble the Motion Platform of X-axis

Step 4: Assemble the Motion Platform of XY-axis

Step 5: Assemble the Accessories for Lathe and Milling

Step 6: Assemble the Support and Stand

Step 7: Install the XY-axis Platform on the Stand

Step 8: Assemble the Bracket for the Spindle Motor.

I drilled an extra hole on the beam to fit them tightly

Step 9: Assemble the Brackets for the Guide Rail

Step 10: Install the Guide Rail and the Motor Bracket of the Main-axis

Step 11: Install the Compression Bar

Step 12: Install the Spindle Motor and Driver Board.

What I used was 555CNC motor with 24V power supply

Step 13: Assemble the Circuit Board and the Motor on the Rack.

Now the assembly has been accomplished!

Step 14: ​Last But Not Least

You can assemble various tools on the motor for processing different kinds of materials, like wood, Acrylic plates, glass fiber board, etc.

To avoid any injuries when the saw blade accidently flies out, it’s required to install a cover plate when use this 5-in-1 machine as a sawing machine.
