Introduction: Mesa Coordenada

The need is the mother of creation, so I decided to build a coordinated table for my bench drill, an indispensable tool in a garage workshop.
I started using recycled materials, purchased in an old iron in my city, but in the end I chose to increase a little more and make some more worked pieces, but nothing that prevents being manufactured at home

Step 1:

I went to the ironwork "Shopping" where I found six pieces of 1/14 "(31.75mm) by 1/8" (3,175mm) and about 800mm long.

Step 2:

I used my miter saw adapted with an abrasive disk to cut the angles.

Step 3:

I cut four pieces into the frame of the first axis.

Step 4:

This is how the first frame, first axis, should look.

Step 5:

Two centralized holes to guide the spindle.

Step 6:

Repeating the first steps for the second axis, attached here by an intermediate frame, where the spindle nuts were affixed.

Step 7:

Sticking the piece of angle that had received the cheek of the walrus.

Step 8:

Opening thread 6mm to fix the jaws.

Step 9:

Also bought in the "mall" a massive bar of 20mmx20mm to be the cheek.

Being pierced and countersunk to be affixed.

Step 10:

Here the vise already with the cheeks, being welded the support of the spindle.

Step 11:

For the movement of the spindles, I decided to make flywheels cast in aluminum.

Here my homemade 3D printer, printing the models for casting

Step 12:

First half of the steering wheel model ready, (the blue color at the end is for taking advantage of the remains of filaments of varied colors)

Step 13:

Second part of the steering wheel being printed in blue abs, this in turn was not in good quality which compromised the finish of the piece

Step 14:

Here the two halves of the steering wheel are ready, fix the blue with white plastic mass, to repair the imperfections of the bad abs.

Step 15:

Here by sanding the model that is attached to the bench drill.

Step 16:

Starting the mold for casting.

Step 17:

Finishing casting mold (I intend to make other instructables detailing casting and 3D printing)

Step 18:

Here the furnace for aluminum casting.

Step 19:

We made six pieces in different molds.

Step 20:

Finished piece, just missing the burrs.

Step 21:

Hole for fixing the spindles

Step 22:

Stud fixing hole for locking the spindle

Step 23:

Handwheel crank hole

Step 24:

Cheek grooves.

Step 25:


Step 26:

Third frame, the walrus.

Step 27:

Finished piece, ready for use.
