I've been writing, wrapping up the last of my sculpting projects for a while, and being an overall ruralburbian dad.
My son, JBR 2, is now 11 years old, and up to my shoulder. He finished his first season in American tackle football, playing defensive line.
I'm very proud of him, along with being on the A/B Honor Roll for school.
On to my new CNC machine.
It's a home-brew job, cobbled together from a hodgepodge of online inspirations and sketches.
I was running into issues with the Z axis when I first assembled it. It kept stalling under its own cantilevered weight. So, I took a lesson from slant-bed lathes, and inclined the whole machine. Much smoother, now.
I call it "lawn-chair style." ;)
Control box is a Deepgroove1 model, with a G540 board and 3 270oz/in Nema 23 steppers.
Spindle is a Hitachi M12VC 2.25 Hp router.
Khurasan Minis has released the MDMS series of mercenary vehicles, namely the MDMS Taipan and Goanna main battle tanks and the Cane Toad APC.
They are intended to be used by a broad array of forces, with custom-tailored weaponry to various tech levels and army styles.
Their turrets and accessories are widely interchangeable with the Karkpanzer and Nova Respublik Red Banner tanks I did for KM, so you modularity addicts out there can have fun swapping out parts.
Here's the previous post on the Painted MDMS vehicles...Link
And now, the link to the sales page. They are listed under the Thrainites, KM's take on high-gravity space humanoids. Read the fluff. It, like the rest of Khurasan Jon's text and fictional universe, is quite good.
