So here we are today. I wish I knew how to use Fusion 360. It would be a lot easier to print plans and go for it, but I am just piecing this together by whichever way the wind takes me. I now have a functional quill stop, and will have to fabricate the final piece. A magnetic DRO encoder mount that is slightly adjustable in 2 axis so I can finish up my project. I have learned a lot about the limits of my machine, troubleshooting, cutters and their behaviors, feeds, speeds, and Koolmist. Lastly, measuring is sometimes hard when working in 3 dimensions, and my eyes are **** in close range.

Send me a hand drawn sketch with dimension notations and I’ll model it up in F360 and create a 2D drawing package based on the model.

I may just take you up on that someday. :)

Next small project was to replace the janky, and awkward DRO mount from the provided parts that came in the universal install kit, to a monolithic block machined bespoke to my install. Not only is it a cleaner and stronger install, but it is also more compact, and allows better access to my Z gib locks.
