X axis acme nut trap.
I am using 3/8" acme rods and nuts for my X and Y axis. Nothing I could find would fit my custom cnc build, so I decided to 3D print some models out of ABS and cast them out of scrap aluminum.
Models and Machined acme nut Traps.
After casting the parts in a sand mold, I machined them on a 12" drill press using an X-Y table and a CNC straight cutter. Slight modifications to make them fit exactly how I needed them.
Y Axis acme nut trap.
Right now there are only a couple washers/nuts locking the nut to the trap. Once the cnc is up and running I will machine a couple clamps to lock them to the nut traps.
