CNC router build #1: CNC router plans and back story

11-29-2017 09:14 PM by Mainiac Matt | 7 comments »

Hi all, After years of planning and several different design variations… all with a tight budget in mind, I am finally building a CNC gantry robot. I have been an active dumpster diver at work for linear motion and electrical components replaced on existing machinery, or salvaged off of scrapped machinery. But I could never get to the point where I could build the machine I wanted within the puny budget I had. However, I finally pitched this project successfully to my boss at wo...

Adventures in CNC routing #1: Honey-do sign test #1

11-05-2017 02:40 PM by Tooch | 5 comments »

Last year I purchased a CNC machine for our school, but didn’t really get passed some basic stuff with the stock files that came with it. I recently decided that I wanted the kids to get more exposure with it, but I first had to teach myself. I gotta tell ya, some people think creating things with a CNC machine is easy, but that is certainly not the case. I’m finding that it is a different kind of “hard”, with lots of time being spent setting up the files, creating ...

Mirock's Workshop Time Laps #1: Tool-pulling Long Wall Side Table

06-04-2017 07:02 PM by mirock | 7 comments »

Hello guys. I brought to my shop new machine and deficite of place become more perceptible. I was thinking about conception of my workspace and understand I was wrong with this table. I’ve came to idea that it is absolutely useless as worktable. All work anyway occured on central worktable and these tables always turned to tool storage…not so convenient storage. All this could be kept on shelves and wallholders but step by step tools migrate to table and lay there...

Hands-on with the Shaper Origin

03-19-2017 09:43 PM by Patrick Jaromin | 5 comments »

When I was first searching for a CNC to add to my shop, I ran across an odd tool called the Shaper Origin. The tool was in essence a self-correcting router that works like a hand-held CNC machine. I spent some time watching the videos on their site and reading through the blog. It was a novel idea, though it wasn’t quite ready to ship (as I write the the first batch is slated to ship Fall 2017) and not really what I wanted/needed for guitar work. Still, it seemed absolutely incredib...

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...

100 foot cabinet shop #1: Thoughts behind the shop and working standards

02-13-2017 01:50 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Used to have a shop, X got in the divorce. :( Fast forward 15 years & I have 2/3 of 1/2 of a garage to build a cabinet shop in. The core of any shop is the table saw and within my (retired) spending limit I got a brand new Grizzly G0715P. Simultaneously with the saw purchase I added an Incra LS-III rip fence and an Incra miter gauge. I’m disabled and can’t walk / stand a lot so everything is within reach of my chair in front of the saw. I’ve got most all of th...

Toy gun with working trigger

Hello again folks! This weekend’s project was a toy gun, but I wanted to make the trigger click back after being fired. To accomplish this, I used a simple rubber band! The main shape was cut out using a Shapeoko 3 CNC machine. Enjoy! View on YouTubeuTube

Shop Remodel #29: Blame it on Star Wars

01-01-2016 02:27 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Hello all, I haven’t been keeping up with this blog very well this week. It is because I haven’t had a lot to report. I have been trying to finish up the carving on the till, but it has been slow going. I might have to pull out some power carving goodies to get on top of it. I was hoping to get started on the bench this week and I may well get out the maple tomorrow to see if I have enough, I’m little skeptical about it. I might have to alter the design to accommodate it. On...
