Old thread got locked long ago… A recap, I designed a 80/20 frame for the Standard S3, ordered everything, made a few minor mistakes, had to reorder some parts, and finally got the first one together a few days ago. Have been 3D printing rail caps to test before I start milling them out of aluminum.
Also designing some belt tighteners and tension gauges as well.
This frame is solid and heavy, I have absolute full confidence in it. The Ohio Diesel spoil board now has 14 attachment points instead of 8 and has full support from all sides into the middle. The outside frame base in the photos is the same as my double enclosure I built, so it bolts right to the inside of the frame of the enclosure.
Also spent way too much time modelling my enclosures and some cabinets I am making, they will be insulated/sound proofed and will have separate chambers holding the shop vac, Spindle chiller, PC and all will be on sliding drawers for easy access.
Looking forward to installing Dan Story’s Linear Rail kit and the 2.2K spindle!
Of course I had to model my actual hose adapters onto my models of the dust deputy’s and my shop vac’s haha…
