The plates have been updated from aluminum to steel. The plates weigh about 20 kilos and make the machine extremely strong and robust.
To build the machine you will need the plates as well as…
- Hardware (screws brackets etc): http://rawcnc.com/product/hardware-for-raw-1-5/ or buy all one by reading the BOM list contained in our articles
- Aluminum profiles, chaftclamps and steel shaft
- Steel bar 40x60x2mm around 100cm.
- A spindle/ router
What does it cost to build a Raw 1.5?
You can build the machine for about 600Eur and up without electronics depending on where you buy the parts. You can even downgrade some things like shaft clamp, etc. Many of the parts like motors and electronics can also be purchased used on eBay for example. The price of the electronics ranges from 100EUR and upwards depending on the quality.
We do not thread the holes on these plates. You need 4.5.8 mm taps for that. Make sure the taps are of good quality and use grease for each hole. The plates are made of steel and really hard. Our Taps are in very good quality.
You can choose to purchase the plates for a Standard 1.5 machine that fits both timing belt or racks. EXTENDED version requires more plates and is built with racks. If you are unsure, see our different drawings. The drawings are included in our articles and guides.
The plates are laser cut and not polished or grinded. You can wash the plates and paint directly on the steel or brush them up.
