H-02 Solder Head Interface board

The next step is to start on the Solder head interface board. It uses signal relays for the outputs and opto-isolators for the inputs.All of the signals enter/exit through a 50-pin Centronics connector. Below is the new board on the left and the original I/O board on the right.

The Y axis is coming along.

Once again it is measuring the sizes and mounting locations by measurement. What I doing is taking measurements with vernier callipers, then with the understanding that it is a metric machine and assuming that the dimensions are in metric, round the measurement to a reasonable values based on what I feel an engineer would have chosen.

I managed to start the Z-axis conversion over the weekend.
The new nut holder is to be made in two parts. This is so that it can be assembled into the column. The larger size of the RM2005 ballnut in comparison to the original nut makes it impractical to make the nut holder in piece.

I decided to start with the X-Axis as there were a few ideas I wanted to test. I've decided to make as many parts for the conversion out of Corian. Corian is a Dupont material used primary for kitchen benchtops.   It machines beautifully and does not stress  my Taig CNC Mill that I will be using to make the parts. The material I get access to is 12mm thick, and primarily comes from sink cutouts and the like.
