.... or at least a semi-failure.
I got a nice case made to cover the motor, the worm and wheel, the dog clutch and to mount a couple of controls. Actually, I was rather pleased at how the dog clutch panned out as that is my most complex milling project so far.
But I seem to have messed up somewhat in my choice of speeds as the slowest I can move the table is one inch per minute (a tad less, 24.3mm in fact). This seems fine for fly cutting aluminium but I have a feeling that will be too fast for work on harder metals such as steel?
