New form of suburban transport.

I stumbled across a really interest site Endless Sphere where there is a lot of activity around alternative modes of electric transport. I was particularly interested in the electronic longboard section as I helped  my son built a standard one that he uses to commute to high school. We decided it was time to upgrade to an electric version.

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.

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.
