    Very creative way of doing things, by using wooden parts to get a functional machine that can then make more permanent parts out of stronger materials. Kudos!

    Thanks! The proof will be in the pudding - so to speak, but I am feeling optimistic about this build.

    Thanks! The next video is probably going to be a little longer than the other, as I'll be fitting and wiring the steppers, a sub waste-board and wiring and programming the VFD.

    Great build. You would not happen to have a link to the adapters that you used for the water tubes per chance would you. I have the same spindle and the little barbs just feel way to flimsy.

    Hi Savvas

    So great to have you join the OpenBuilds crowd ! Already learned so much following your chanel and this is another excellent series
    Will surely become a reference build . . .

    Hardly waiting for the next parts
