Hot dusty dirty day of drilling holes in concrete. They always need to be a little deeper than you think. 6 holes for the lathe, 2 for the mill. Other than that, not much happened on Monday.
Nerds came over, helped me finish up the tools, spent a lot of time helping me shop for lubrication. With the following result:
Very pleased! Robot axles ahoy! To Star Wars afterwards, with even more nerds. It still doesn’t suck.
Shopping for bolts to bolt the mill down. Small bolt/hardware stores with $25 EFTPOS minimums are dangerous, it cost me $50 to make up that $25. Still:
Brass machines beautifully. Did I mention I bought a lathe?
