I have made a little progress on my project any how, i just wanted to post a few pictures that i took the other day to show, how my repstrap is coming along. there is no major devolopents yet, but it is still nice to see if you ask me. i put the clock under the one deck so that people can see how it will work when i do find a way to attach it to the ready rod for my z asix
i did manage to try a test of the mig welding tip extruder i did get it to work but the bolt that i got drilled out and threaded in the middle was not done how i needed it, i thought it was going to be an issue but seeing how the fellow that did it, did it for free, i am not going to complain. but i do think if i can find a way to reduce its thermal mass i can get it to work i do think the bold head is a great way to hold the barrel and stop it from moving around. but i will just have to work on it a bit more.
i know on one of my first posts on my blog i was told that i would have the issues that i have run into, and i do thank you for your feed back. so my challenge is to now see if i cant make it better.
but i do think i will need a longer than average extruder barrel because of how i needed to mount my extruder, has any one had to do this before. i am thinking i might try to see if i cant get some PTFE into a longer copper tube, i think that could work well for what i need.
