-<WRAP center round todo 60%> +===== 1. Put it in the shed ===== 
-**This stage is still in progress*due to the shed being full of <​del>​crap<​/del> ​//valuable ​and useful items//. + 
-</WRAP>+I'm fortunate enough to have an inventing shed, and there was already an old kitchen unit on the end of the workbench housing an obnoxious printer:

 +So let's clear that off:

 +===== 2. Make an enclosure ===== 
 + 
 +This is not really necessary but it does make life a bit nicer - mills are noisy and throw stuff around like anything so a neat box for it to live in is not a bad idea. 
 + 
 +I ordered: 
 +  ​20x20 "​Homage ​to Rexroth"​ profile from [[http://​aluminium-profile.co.uk/​acatalog/​Aluminium_Profile_with_6mm_Slot.html|KJN]] 
 +  * 2mm Lexan Polycarbonate from [[https://​www.theplasticshop.co.uk/​replacement-shed-windows-greenhouse-windows-cut-to-size.html|ThePlasticShop.co.uk]] 
 +  * 24v white LED strip from eBlag 
 +  * e-stop switch from eBlag 
 +  * LED Ring light from eBlag 
 + 
 +And here it all is: 
 +

 + 
 +This picture shows 90% of how the box is constructed:​

 + 
 +The screws slot into an upright piece which has been cross-drilled to allow a driver bit to fit in, then you just tighten it up. 6mm ply in the base fits straight in the slots, the lexan fits in the glazing channel (because 6mm thick lexan is hella expensive ​and massive overkill). 
 + 
 +Drill a big hole for cables:

 +Place in corner:

 + 
 +Mill up top, PC down below, monitor on the wall above. Not super-ergonomic but that's the space I've got to work with.
