Shapeoko 3 Upgrades – Part 1.1

I finished up the torsion table tonight. Well all except for the second layer on the top.

I glued and screwed all the rest of the ribs in.


Then I marked the position of the long ribs on the bottom skin so I knew where to put the screws.


Followed up with spreading glue on all the ribs and drilling holes and driving screws.



Unfortunately, while the table might be stiff and rigid, it’s not quite flat. I flipped it over and laid a straightedge across it and it’s got a hump in the middle. I guess I should have made a third support rail out of 2×4 to hold the center up.

Oh well, when I glue the top on it I can flatten it out. Not that it will be easy, but I can make it flatter.

That’s all for today. I’ll have to take some photos of the other mods I’ve already done and add them to this thread.
