Seeking pledges for replacement controller for Swarfomat. Sadly the Novusun controller we originally did the upgrade with failed, and our experience with it has not been great: it does not implement all Mach 3 functionality and is poorly documented and supported. The new controller is a UC300ETH from CNCDrive, and was selected from a short list of widely used, supported alternatives.

Occasionally a second hand tool or machine on our wishlist will come up for sale at a price that's too good to pass up. This fund will allow the Infrastructure Subcommittee to leap on those unbelievable bargins before they're snatched up. We may also use this fund to 'top up' other funding goals if they have an unexpected time sensitive purchase.

Project to purchase some items to expand the capabilities and usability of the metal lathe, in particular to make work setup easier and more accurate.

The spindle sander is a tool designed to help you achieve a smooth, flat finish to wood pieces with curved edges and internal radii. We do not currently have another tool in the space that can adequately serve this purpose.

Unfortunately there are occasionally screws and other bits of sharp metal dropped in the car park on the way to the skip. A magnetic broom would mean that our volunteers can quickly sweep the carpark and say goodbye to tire punctures.

Our new forge is almost ready and we need to start gathering the required tools. A 20KG anvil is an easy start.

The only decent sander in the space right now is the Carbatec belt sander. The increase in woodworking projects in the space requires a finer touch.

While you can get by driving screws and other fixings with a drill the correct tool is an impact driver. Realistically we drive more than we drill.

An impact wrench will make it easier for members to work on vehicles as well as other projects. Pneumatic tools also have the advantage of being significantly cheaper than their electric counterparts and we're currently under utilising our air system.

Both pressure and vacuum chambers can be used to remove the air from resin for casting but this seems like the cheapest solution.

Our current drill presses are suffering from increased runout and a lack of availability of spare parts. The purchase of a drill press from a better brand will ensure that future reparis are possible. In addition this free standing drill press will allow for larger projects than either the Ozito or Ryobi presses currently in the space.

Table saw: Our job saw isn't big enough for most cuts and it would be nice to have a table saw set up permenantly.
Router table: There are a number of woodworking tasks that can be best achieved using a router table.
This second hand purchase comes with the Triton Workcenter 2000 Table Saw and Router tables as well as an extension for the table saw.
