Quiet - But NOT Idle

I haven't updated the blog this past week, but that does not mean I have not been busy. We are awaiting the birth of our 9th grandchild. In preparation, it has been requested (decreed?) that I build a double deck combination baby crib and youth bed to hold the newborn and his 2 year old brother. Another brother and sister already laid claim to the other two bed rooms. When I get it done, I'll post a few pics.

The laser shop has not been idle either. I have not been doing production, but had a whole list of maintenance items to work on. I'll be posting on each of them as well. Until then, here is a sneak peak at what all was covered.
  • Install new laser tube
  • Upgrade the y axis mechanics
  • Install a combined drive card for the x, y, and z axes
  • Replace the 400 step motors on x, y with 200 step motors
  • Get the z axis automated and functional
  • General cleaning, etc.
Most of these got done over the weekend; some more than once so check back for all the gory details when I get the posts and pics up. I still need to button everything up and get it off the workbench and back to its usual workstation. Then I can turn my attention back to the bed for a few days and write blog entries while the finish is drying.
