Display bases


Sheet of display bases being machined. Total time for a sheet about 5 hours, produces enough bases for about 2 1/2 sets depending on waste. A couple more days of these and there will be enough for the first batch of kits, then I’ll probably move onto the board coil bases.

  1. What are you using to machine them Tony?

    1. The table is a no-name Chinese router with a 3kW spindle I bought used a couple of years ago. It came without control electronics so I fitted a Mach3 based PC controller to it. These pieces are routed with a 3mm solid carbide end mill and drilled with a 2mm carbide drill bit.

  2. Impressive! Hope you’re videoing a lot of the build too, it would make a great documentary when finished.
    Great stuff, great project.. again, well done Tony

  3. Great work and a LOT of work indeed; I too hope you are able to video the build process although I know that means more work

    1. I haven’t been recording up to now as it’s been frantic work just getting the parts ready but most of the machining will still need to be repeated a few times. Once the first kits are done and I can slow down a little there may be time for a few videos showing each part being made.

  4. Looking Gooood! Anxious to get the kit. 🙂
