Do you have two extra sets available? I am sitting here trying to figure out how to reduce the costs with the quotes I've gotten, and in the balance between getting the experience of sourcing parts vs getting the thing built, I am starting to lean heavily towards actually doing something.

Got the parts today. Thanks Joe.

UPS managed to damage the car main plate, but it should be fixable.

Hey Joe - there are always ways to improve, which is what makes engineering, building things and just doing stuff fun.

For me, the minor inconvenience of a few dings is well worth it. The best quote I got for two sets was $760/set, of unknown quality (they probably would've been fine, but you never know until you actually order).

So I appreciate what you are doing, because it has helped me over a big hurdle towards the finish line of making dust!

My buddy who is making the other MM is a mechanical guy (I am electrical/software), and he was impressed with the quality of the parts and with the design.

...okay - I welded the gantry for Nils machine today. The fit on your parts joe is outstanding. I hate admitting the machine I am helping build is better than my own Nice parts.

Joe,

Thanks again for the great parts. The gantry looks very sharp because the parts fit together so well. Yes, please tell your supplier that we like what they are doing.

You are right Gerald on the cost break-up which i have not added. I had quoted them for indication purpose only and not for commercial puposes, its for our builders to have an idea on the pricing.

That is the only way I can keep the UPS Guys from dropping the boxes. I am working on getting a double walled corrugated box produced, so there is no rattle room.
I should get them next week.

I still have a few more sets available. If anyone is interested, send me a PM with all of your shipping info.

Note to self: Have to bear in mind that there is a special box - cannot casually increase the big dimensions in later revisions

The box I was using was a standard size box that I could order off line.
With the last revision to the Y-car pushed me out of the box. The next size that I could find was too big in every direction. hence I had to seek out a local box maker. The price per box is about $2 more.
It is that 1% that writes back to say that something was bent during shipping(but was fixable), to make doing this worth while.

Oh well, I think it is worth it for the tab? I guess I will have to figure out a way to ship those too.

Laser Cut Parts

Riz,
Iím glad that everything arrived in tact.

I made another order today. So, those thinking of starting their MM, Parts will ready in a couple of weeks.
For those people who are interested, Please email me all your shipping address info. so I can calculate shipping charges.

Unfortunately, shipping outside the U.S. cost waaaaaaaaaaay to much. The people at the UPS store said that the weight was the thing that is killing me.

Joe
