Hackerspace scanner, the laser cut version

Built a scanner? Started to build a scanner? Record your progress here. Doesn't need to be a whole scanner - triggers and other parts are fine. Commercial scanners are fine too.

I did not get access of a CNC cutter to a desent cost.... So I use the drawing "as is" on the laser cutter.

The hole for the bearing was a bit big and the wood is "burn" and smell in the beginning.

I also need to change some things there the CNC cutter only cut part of the deep.

If I could get hold of a CNC cutter to a nice cost I use that next time.
