Part three of the final assembly - some of this will be familiar from the trial assembly.
In Part 2 we left off having the base assembled. Here we have installed the column, bolted on the rails and the head assembly along with the Z-Axis ballscrew.
This shot shows the neoprene Gortite bellows fitted to the fore and aft of the table. You can also see some of the wiring done as well.
Here we are starting to fit the Gortite belows to the Z-Axis.
Here is a shot from underneath the table looking at the carriage. There will be a rail installed to carry the cables here an tidy this area up somewhat.
Here is the finished machine without the spindle attached. The cowling over the top of the Z-Axis is 2mm thick aluminium sheeting and angle.
