I wanted to buy a z-axis scissor lift for my laser cutter so that I can, well, bugger about really. Light Objects sell them but at $195 plus taxes, plus shipping, plus all the messing about with import duties and customs I did my usual and thought “I’ll build my own!”
What we have here is Mk 1. There are a few issues
- It’s made of wood
- I put a travelling slot along the entire length of the support. One part of the scissor should be fixed.
- I made the scissor arms too wide so that as they rotate they force the support out of the base.
- I’ve yet to work out how to make the support bars that will go across the middle.
I have faith though
