One of the nicest things about not having a woman around when you’re trying to get stuff done is not having a woman around when you’re trying to get stuff done.
With that in mind I started tossing together a CNC machine that will be able to mill wood, plastics, and PCBs using the RepStrap idea of tossing something together to make the parts for a more permanent machine. This will be used mainly to create parts for a 3D printer and to properly mill a replica of itself that will be perfectly machined. Once complete it will be dismantled and its parts will be recycled to make something that runs much more efficiently and looks a fuck of a lot prettier.
Also I’m doing it entirely with hand tools. Just a hand saw, power drill, and battery-powered Dremel. With batteries charged off of the solar panel. Hence the title. Fuck it.
Here’s a quick pic of what I have so far. More later, maybe with plans or something:
