Intro: How to Make a Five-in-One Mini Wood Working Machine
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: http://www.makeblock.com/
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.
