I have started designing a cabinet to hold my CNC machine. This will allow viewing of the machine as it works and keep the mess to itself. It will also have a location for the electronics to keep everything self contained. Some anticipated features:

  • Electronics storage with location for cooling fan
  • Windows on two sides for observation
  • Doors on two sides for easy access
  • CNC machine sits on a sliding shelf for easy installation and removal
  • ESTOP and power switches on front of machine
  • Printer port connector (DB25) on back
  • Minimises amount of chips and debris reaching electronics
  • Power outlet for rotary tool

Once it is completed pictures will be posted.
