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!

  1. 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.
