I have begun construction of a Mendelmax. I decided to make a nice aluminum y axis for it. I have a feeling that several of the pieces for this will eventually end up in aluminum as I think I can use several of the download files as is and modify the view that are too complex to make in metal. This should create a stout little machine. I'm curious to see if it might be usable for light milling in the future. It would be a good machine for the students to build possibly.
