Since I had the weekend freed up for using the engraver but am now stuck in a holding pattern, I took the time to install a drawer that allows me to access the back of the machine. I also crafted a cover out of some scrap vinyl to protect it from my other garage activities. This shelf is 5 feet from a cat door I’ll use for the exhaust duct. I have a single-car garage and a full workbench so space is at a premium.
I’ll start working on the coolant setup so that I’m ready for the new tube.
