Kuldeep assembles the pantorouter (2018 version)
Kuldeep has been evolving the design of his metal "hybrid" pantorouter. The latest version is built by a contract manufacturer. Kuldeep sent me one, and on visiting me, assembled it. This was the first time he opened the packaging from this manufacturer.
This version comes with a cast aluminium base, which saves a lot of steps of the assembly. On the 2015 version it took a while to put this base together
Here Kuldeep is adding the table. The table supports and angle adjust protractors were already mounted to the base in the box.
Screwing the pantograph base onto the linear bearings, which are already in place on steel shafts on the base. It's best to loosen the mounting screws for the shafts before mounting the base so that the shafts will align themselves to the base.
