I’ve been building a leadscrew cover for the Sherline’s I’m going to sell. I think this is a must on any cnc machine.
I like the classical accordion-like cover, originally designed by ixen-cnc.com. So far, the main obstacle has been to find an appropriate paper. But I guess here is: Fabriano Tiziano Paper. This is a acid-free, 40% cotton, 160 gsm drawing paper. Very high quality and strong paper.
Folding has a trick; you should use a ballpoint pen to trace each line, pushing hard (kind of emboss). Even if you do this, folding is difficult, though not impossible.
And the best thing… you have a lot of color options!. I like the black-red combination.
