    I have had luck with using the school where they teach CNC in getting VERY cheap work done. They love to get real world jobs. I am sure there is a school like that in all parts of the world.

    I am about two years behind schedule now.
    Hi,
    That looks like a Porter Cable 690 motor? If so I am impressed that it matches the tolerances you specify for your rig.

    The roter is a Porter Cable 6902. The choice of spindle has nothing whatever to do with the precision of the guideways. The precision I referred to was in the alignment of the linear slides only. After your message I went out into the shop and measured the runout of the porter cable spindle and it was well within .0002 TIR. I guess I do not understand your question because that seems very good to me.

    I use the router for its high speed. For more precision work I mount my Grizzly Minimill spindle to the Z axis. This works very well.

    Hi,
    I'm sorry to be confusing. I just thought I recognized the router and was curious if it was indeed the tool I thought it was. I don't doubt that you have carefully checked that the tool's precision is within the tolerances you need for your application. I have a 690 and my personal experience is that it is a rugged little beastie. I was just impressed that something I have used for very rough work was also capable of doing the delicate stuff.

    Good morning, Celac;

    Another area where small production runs (even one or two) are not unknown for precision machining is in the related field of astronomy and telescopes. There are some companies who advertise in SKY & TELESCOPE and ASTRONOMY magazines. You might inquire there also.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."
