Small drilling machine 11.10.2018 at 13:44

For drilling PCBs, I use a homemade CNC machine. But it happens that for a small fee with a dozen, others of the holes to set the machine just too lazy impractical. And with a hand drill hole 0.5 — 1.0 mm — direct translation drills. So I decided to make my own little machine, since there is a 3D printer for production of structural elements.


the modernization of the two lathes left polished shafts guides with end thread, SC8UU linear bearings and a pair of springs from antilipemic nuts. And the old laser printer motor RM1-4617.

To the motor is left to buy the only tube for drill. For those who have not lying around in the bins a lot of unnecessary piece of iron, giving credit for the purchase of spare parts

For the Assembly of used screws, nuts, washers and studs M4 and M3 (for mounting motor), bought in the nearest store fixture.

Screw M4 x 10mm round head screw — 8 pieces (the bearing is mounted to bracket) Screw M4 x 20mm round head — 2 PCs (bottom hinge) Screw M4 x 15mm round head c — 2 PCs (upper hinge) Pin 130mm M4 — 2 PCs (average hinge and handle) Nut M4 — 12pcs (each hinge 2 PCs) M4 Washer — 24pcs (inserted all the rivets) Screw M3 10mm hex — 2pcs (motor mount) when guides with end thread screw M4 x 10mm flat head screws — 4pcs
