VAT-Tilt connection

November 29th, 2011

It is one of the least, but not last thing left to do. The VAT to Tilt to X axis connection.

This is going to be long. Time me if you want. Start:

Mark 7mm from each sideĀ  ( you can pick another number as long as it is a sacred one ).
Drill with M4 bit and a vacuum cleaner at this point to avoid getting chips in unwanted places and shortening something.

Assembled an L shape bracket with a bolt like so:

Cut 2 x M4 threaded rod pieces in 125mm lengths:

Assemble the rods and L shape into:

Bend the rods to be perpendicular to the Meccano piece:

Now attach the Meccano piece with some M5 Inbus:

I had to recenter my X- axis to be in the center of the rods.

Finally bolt together, tighten and adjust with top lock nuts.

 

Stop!
Phew! That was a fast one. Took me longer to stop and take photos, than to actually assemble.

Yamas!
