The computer which goes with the CNC mill has been put back in place, with
a monitor and keyboard and mouse. It has also been cleaned of dust with a
vacuum and air blower.
The CNC machine has been cleaned and freed of random bits of trash.
BUT we are still missing some important things: the fourth axis which
looks like this (except with blue trim instead of black)
also, much more importantly, we are missing the 1/8" collet.
It is necessary for holding bits which have a 1/8" shank.
Right now we only have the collet for 1/4" shank which is nearly useless.
here is a picture of a 1/8" collet:
UNFORTUNATELY i don't know if the above item (which is for sale) is the
right part for our mill. probably the company could tell us.
although maybe someone here knows where the 1/8" collet is, perhaps it's
in a container with a bunch of mill bits?
