Hello, its been a long time since we updated, and that’s mainly due to both of us being extremely busy with our day jobs. There has however been some progress and this is partly facilitated by our new CNC machine. The CNC was purchased from ebay and so far we have been extremely impressed with the machine.
The first thing we made for The Inebriator was the new glass tray which will hold the glass whilst the drink is being dispensed. The glass tray also needs to house the LED ring to allow for some nice lighting affects.
The tray was made with 3 layers of acrylic. The top and bottom layer are 5mm black acrylic. The central layer is 15mm clear acrylic. The center layer has an inner circle cut out to hold the glass, plus another circular channel 12mm deep to house the LED ring. These layers are then simply screwed together. The machining of the clear acrylic leaves a slightly rough finish which works quite well to help diffuse the LED light.
