The cnc-machine is working for one week now. on the weekend I did the first useful millings to provide holes for the mounting plate made of sandwich plates of wood. Now I understand how everything is working. Today I ordered a tool measuring sensor for changing the tools without any hassle. This will get much more value to the work with the machine in near future.
see the video of the weekend session…
Right now I am again at reworking the arms and the ground plate (I will call that ground plate in future posts the motherboard)
For doing maintenance to everything the motherboard should hold the arms without the second plate. I try to implement a kind of puzzle construction which makes everything more complicated but prevents the owner at final construction to loose control of the cables modules and rest of the stuff. Stay connected. This copter will be a earthshaking and groundbraking INNOVATION to the UAV market. We are reinventing modern multicopters for getting the most flightimes and maximum of efficiency out of it.
On Monday I got the information from DHL Freight that the stuff will be delivered on wednesday. So today is the day. These guys at DHL Freight did all wrong what can happen. They gave the transport the wrong number and they don’t know whats up with the stuff. I already called them today 6 times. Further I went home from work at 13:45 and I am still waiting for the parcel. I am not amused about this and my worst nightmare will be if the package is damaged. I don’t know what I will do then if it is like that…
So this is my first post about the new cnc and I am a little disappointed. I ordered from ebay at 27. August. Today we have the 11. September ( holy shit for americans a hard day and for me too) so I had the last 2 days different conversations with DHL Freight to find out what´s up with my awaiting package. At 7th september it started to track as a missing piece. This hold on until the 10th – yesterday. I decided to call the DHL for this and they have no clue about this. Today they figured out that the package is sent to a wrong destination in Aachen Germany. For the question why, nobody at their helpdesk could explain it to me. It´s hanging there for the last 3 days with no change today after my call they told me they will ship it to Nürnberg – but the tracking is now out of order for this. I already told the seller at ebay that I give him 3 options with a deadline until tomorrow saturday. But right now I am sure it is not his fault.
So we will see on monday if the package will arrive after nearly 3 weeks. If so all is ok if not I will take advantage and let paypal do all the things…
So my open project with my little TICK hexarotor is hanging on because I can not get the frame done for the last 10 weeks. Friends, helpers and guys around me are not able to get the few holes drilled inside to get a first full prototype. So I decided today to buy my second milling machine to get all the stuff done at home. I am looking around for some weeks for a perfect machine doing all I want to do but there are only old worn out machines or even better ones for a big money. Even the guys who I asked in the net who are selling second hand mechanics are so expensive that I decided to go for a chinese milling machine called here „KÄSEFRÄSE“.
This morning I woke up and had a message of a guy/girl from ebay who is selling these machines. I got an offer for getting a big one 6040 machine with a 3-axis controller for around 1370€. So I accepted this and waiting now for the package to arrive.
I will go on with a report about this underdog CNC and we will see how it will do the job.
