I came across some really nice work in a CNCZone thread recently. jid2 has used an inexpensive sheet metal brake to make some really nice parts for his RF45 CNC conversion. Here is the brake he used:
Nothing special, just the usual cheap import brakes available from Harbor Freight and others…
The Enclosure, complete with logos…
A little bigger view…
Nice shot of the air springs. I like the way they wrapped the servos so they’re out of the way…
Check out the thread–lots of good ideas. Makes me wish I had a sheet metal brake.
