Hi,
All set to build the HercuLien, which will be my 5th machine …
I was wondering about the 2080 extrusions, that is it possible to use 2020 x 4 or 2040 x 2 instead … will this cause a major major road block and is it doable ??
Any advice is greatly appreciated
thanks in advance

Looks like @Mikael_Sjoberg ​ is using two 20x40, https://plus.google.com/118217975155696261814/posts/UK8tWCeq4eE

The hard part will be the holes that go through the seam for the drive pulleys and knobs. Likely would have to be milled out, or cut out like a dado.

thanks Eric … i guess i will make a plate connection across the width of the 2020/2040 ext to see that they are clamped together … thin 20-40 mm wide aluminum 3 - 5mm thick strip’s, bolted down with t-nuts and then cut them down to size 569.5mm and then will put this, with these strips on my CNC machine and drill the holes … that should solve this issue i guess … what do you think ?.. (if you did not understand, i will make a sketch and send it) …

then either leave the support strips or pull them out after the entire assembly … we can take a call about this later

@Godwin_Bangera sounds like a good idea.

thanks
