    CNC made Flapgauge

    Just wanted to show you my progress on a flapgauge that I'm working on. It is fully made with my CNC. I have made a picture without the transparent plexi cover because the light reflected to much.


    Regards, Wendy

    Hi David,

    I have purchased a Colinbus selfbuild package. So it is a factory build machine but you have to assemble it yourself. Because the router was a Ferm I have changed it in a Kress 1050 and changed the mounting of the router to. Kress and mounting plate are available via www.damencnc.be


    Regards, Wendy

    Nice job. How about putting the DXF file into the file library for the rest of us?

    Hey Valerio,

    It is not finished yet but I'll show you a picture like it is now. I also include a picture from the gears that I have made. The gauge will be driven by 2 servo's that I'm going to connect to a phidget servo board.

    Regards, Wendy
