Milled PCB Test

A few pictures of a test run trying out isolation PCB routing. GCode was generated using the PCB-Gcode script for Eagle, using the backplane board from my 6502 project as input.

Part way through the run I noticed that the mill was slightly out of alignment on the X-axis, this was causing shallow track cuts which got progressively worse the further along the X-axis the program went. A quick adjustment of the gantry seems to have fixed this but some further testing is required. I also need to tweak feed rates and cut depths, but the test went very well!

    Have you made any progress on this? I was also inspired by Quinn’s page and have started to gather parts to start my own build!

      No progress on this project recently. This project dates back to early this year, the date on the posts are all wrong as I moved the content from my previous website into this WordPress install late August.

      I plan to get the mill out of storage and get stuck back into the 6502 project over the New Year break.
