In my video
I show the design software (https://www.framexpert.com/) I used to create a plan and cutting list for the chosen material for the frame of my machine 3030 Profile Aluminium Extrusion T-Slot.
I sourced mine here in Australia from (http://www.mkalu.com/). I ordered Bolts, T-Slot Nuts and Brackets from MK Aluminium (you can order in Australia via eBay from MK Aluminium – https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/kunyuwa0/m.html )
I didn’t purchase enough nuts and bolts, so I also purchased extra bolts and T-Slot nuts online, below.
