This PCB drill is made of wood and looks really cool. Wouldn’t mind to have one on my table. Design is very unique – it uses various custom made parts, motors from old printers and VCR’s. Author even simulated all design code on a Labcenter’s Proteus VSM.
“Made from Dremel drill and drill press. I removed the bottom plate & mounted the column to the back with U-bolts. Acrylic is so easy to work with. It can be cut, drilled milled & glued and it’s very strong, doesn’t warp or break easily. The design is the same as the big PCB drills, the table moves, not the drill head. With the exception the real machine tables I’ve worked around ride on air. Like the old air hockey tables Important note: These NEMA teen motors don’t have enough torque to drive the table (no bearings).” [via]
