Ken Filar’s CNC Mill Setup.

I thought I would pass on a couple of preliminary photos.  Since these photos, we've upgraded the coolant capacity from 1 gallons to 5 gallons by sitting the pump in a kitty litter box.  Notice that we added a miniature version of a plastic strip walk-in freezer type door on the left side of the machine.  It is to handle the remainder of the X-travel and accommodate larger pieces for which we're only milling the end, etc.  Not sure how messy one of the larger cutting operations is going to get, but our original machining (that didn't protrude through the "curtain") didn't get anything  outside the enclosure.
