MDF Parts wanted
September 27, 2018 10:39AM

I've got an old Mendel (Prism style) which I haven't used for a while. I'd like to refurb it by getting MDF or Dibond panels for it.

Can anyone supply these? (I'll post in wanted also.)

The MDF version of the machine is designed to be made by hand from rectangular sheets. In the UK I can buy MDF cut to size in B&Q. It is done on a saw that ensures perfect rectangles.

You can then print the PDF drill templates and tape them over the top, prick though the crosses to mark the holes and then centre punch them. You do need a coping saw to cut out the gantry after drilling the holes in the corners.

Thanks, I'll download the files from Github and do some printing. I think my local Bauhaus will cut the MDF to size for me.

Well, Bauhause supplied and cut my MDF for under 6 euros. I tried to find some of those B&Q plastic sheet connectors but Germany doesn't seem to have them. I found something close that will do the job but the hole spacing is slightly different.

They are intended to be printed parts. They are not the same spacing as the off the self variety which I found to be very inaccurate.
