Move, Robot!

Nothing throws off your project manager’s pretty gantt chart like re-locating your entire workshop. It only took us a few months to get comfortable enough to assemble the ShopBot when it first arrived. Luckily a friend in from Indiana with heavy equipment experience was able to loan us his confidence and oversee moving the robot across town to our new space.

Time to Move

  1. Disconnected the dust collection system
  2. Disconnected the hardwired power connections
  3. Removed the four stepper motors
  4. Detached the Control Box
  5. Detached the table surface - 4 sheets of 3/4” wood/MDF
  6. Removed the gantry

Everything fit in a small rental box truck and was loaded using only two dollies.
