JR seeks milling help

The CNC Project is nearing completion.

JR however requests assistance in milling center holes into angled aluminum for the machine’s driving rails.

In addition, we would like to know if there are any pieces of angle iron at least 4ft in length available.

Thanks for your time.


Paul, Jon, Ian, Matt and I can drive the mill reasonably well. Someone should be able to assist either on Microcontroller Monday, or before/after a Tuesday meeting.

Did you have a specific size of angle iron in mind? Sufficient lengths of 1/8" thick 2", 1", and 3/4" angle are likely available, left over from my purchase for the big CNC table. Mike and Tiffany also had some thicker 3/4" angle left over from their brew stand project which may be available for purchase. Just speak with us before absconding with any of it. :smiley:

yep, our leftover angle iron is up for sale–we’ll say say $8 for a 10ft piece. i think it’s 1"x1"x1/4". bit rusty though.
