1st Parts Arrive…

Aluminium Extrusion

Order parts and they arrive (some time later)!

It’s exciting to get the ball rolling although I know there’s a lot more work to be done.

The first parts to order / receive are the aluminium extrusion which bolts together with the aid of printed parts to make the frame of the MendelMax.

A few pieces need to be drilled and tapped.

A key companion part to the extrusion are T-Nuts.  These are nuts that slide in to the extrusion so you can bolt things to the side of it.  In the UK the most available T-Nuts are quite expensive ball-bearing / spring loaded affairs which are quite over the top.  More simple / cheaper T-Nuts are available but not so convenient to purchase.
