When is The Virgin Cut

In the beginning, I gave myself an ultimatum to make some wood dust by March 2010, & its only 3 days way...

Without further ado, here is the status.

Installed the cable chain & layout most of the cables

A closer look at the Gantry

The spindle took position.

Spoil-board in place. now it really looks like a mean machine!

 Well, getting closer now, hmm.... still need to commission the spindle, build the water cooling system for the spindle, mount the control panel, do the final cable connection, do the Emergency -Stop installation, install the gas spring, mount the Variable Speed Drive, ... and...... that's it... I guess....

My brother had booked the front seat & my neighbors are all enthusiastic to see the blue beast in action, time & money running low, potential customers & business partners asking for samples...... etc etc
...........lets see if I can make the virgin cut happen on, Wednesday, 31st March 2010.

Anyone interested to witness this historical moment (at least it is to me ;) ) are most welcome, bring your own drinks if you wish. I would appreciate a bottle of champagne or 2 for the occasion.

Thats all for now, gotta work on double shift to make this happen...

Wish me luck!


  1. Hi there, any update on the event? Sorry cannot make it due entirely to my long hour work schedule.

  2. Made the first cut at about 5pm on 31st March!

    A wonderful feeling!

    will post more on the result as soon as I got enough of playing with my new born.
