Rebuilding my ShapeOko 2

Rebuilding my ShapeOko 2

As you may have read my GRBL shield broke, my Kress FME 800 spindle is broken and sent back to Germany for repair and I’m in the process of rebuilding my cyclone, so while everything is taken apart, I’ve decided to make my ShapeOko 2 bigger on one axis (the x-axis) so it will be 50×100 cm with a working area of approximately 30×80 cm.

Here are some photos of the process:

My plan is to reuse the black aluminum 20×20 mm extrusions as extra support for a new waste board.
