Now that I have all my power supplies drivers and controllers, all those electronics need a nice safe playground to hang out in away from the dusty environs that the machine will no doubt foster. At first I didn’t think I could get a box this nice. These water-tight Nema enclosures are big bucks!But, I found a guy on eBay with a reasonable asking price, ( his wife must’ve wanted to park her car in their garage again ), and I made an offer, sobbed out my poor man’s DIY cnc...

I jumped the back fence several months ago. We have a canyon out there and there is a lot of deadfall and detritus that I like to rummage through for odds and ends that might make interesting additions to my project list. The last adventure uncovered this length of acacia which I thought might make a neat cane. It’s very hard wood, so carving it has taken a lot of hours. Obviously, the thing can’t get chucked up on my lathe, so I took some killer grinding bits to it with my ...
Looky what fell off of the ups truck in front of my house today! 1600oz micro stepper motors 7.8A drivers and power supplies…All good to go. The Y rack and pinion showed up earlier too Unfortunately, this is the end of the shopping spree for now.I’ll have to see how far I can go with what I have. ————————————————————Weekend update: Y axis motor...
Received the y axis THK rails yesterday—just in time for the weekend. I was able to mount them and begin assembling the y axis carriage.As soon as the rack and pinion arrives I’ll be able to make the motor mount box and start focusing on the z axis plate. The y axis rack and pinion gears are stuck in Chicago almost a week already. Not sure what the hold up is.The cable drag chains arrived today from the east coast with no issues. The chains themselves came as thre...
Here is the process I used to attach the carved turkey foot to a bark-on shaft. I am not sure what type of wood the shaft is, but I selected it for the interesting bark it has. I have used this type before and the bark stays attached and has interesting colors and textures. The trick is to make a nice transition between it and the carving, trying to make it flow, nut just a carving stuck on top of a stick. I used wooden dowels and Titebond glue to join the carving to the stick. After the glue...
When I started out working with wood, it was a chore to find any information. I went to used book stores and bought anything that might help and asked any woodworkers I knew. Then Fine Woodworking came along and now the internet. Lumberjocks is the best help I’ve found. There are always several guys who have gone through the same problem.Now, I’m working on 15 chairs. There have been three difficult parts. The curved back, the back legs, and the chair bottom. I’m curre...
I’m working on a cane for my son-in-law’s father. He’s a fanatical turkey hunter and this is a surprise for his birthday in March. John provided a turkey foot as a model for me and I took pictures and enlarged them to get the foot to a size that would be usable as a cane handle. I also modified one of the claws to prevent having a piece sticking out that might get broken. I have a glue joint fight below that toe, so I have the grain of the wood running properly for strength....
I decided to widen the machine when I started planning for the y axis. I was going to have to cut down most rails anyway so I thought I’d rather have the extra capacity.Also, while I had the entire assembly tore down, I decided to add the maple panels into the frame to rigidize the entire assembly. It has really made a big difference. The y axis began with the guide bearings and some 2” angle.I threaded the ends on the 80/20 rails and secured them to the angle. The plan ...
