Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #5: Got the Ceiling Connection on the Hinge Side Completed

11-10-2014 02:06 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #8: Control box enclosure - the machine now has a key!

03-17-2014 07:44 AM by DS | 16 comments »

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...

Hey Steve, this post is in response to your comment on my last post in this series…Even though the new CNC router is not yet installed in my workshop, I managed to take my first foray into the dark side… I spent the day at the factory where my CNC is being built… it is all up and running… just a few minor adjustments… Justin will deliver on Wednesday and spend the day making sure I am happy with the machine. So .. with a little piece of Huon Pine clamped...

Never thought I would actually get one… but I have put the deposit down on a small CNC router… built in Redcliffe, Queensland.. about 30 minutes drive from my workshop… Made by Vermec.Work surface is 1000mm by 800mm and runs a 3HP spindle…All components are either Australian or American made… with many of the parts machined in their own workshop. This is not my machine but I did get to play with it during testing prior to it being shipped north to a secondary ...

I saw AppJourneyman making very impressive inlay banding. I thought I would give it a try on my CNC Router. I had some scrap laying around and thought I would give it a try. It came out very good. Go over to 21st Century Woodworking for project cut files and details.

CNC Chevalet #4: Gluefest, a.k.a. Never Enough Clamps

03-14-2013 07:28 PM by zombolina | 6 comments »

Progress has been made on the glue-ups. I ended up going back and drilling 3/8” holes for dowels in order to keep the pieces aligned for gluing. I have to world’s tiniest drill press, so some of the thicker pieces have to be drilled out in a few layers at a time! But it seems to be working out so far. Should be finished with the last pieces today, then on bench assembly and making the solid wood parts. Going for the record of number of different kinds clamps used. :-) ...

My CNC Router Table

01-18-2013 09:15 AM by allengambrell | 2 comments »

About a year ago I started looking into buying a table saw and decided to get a 3hp sawstop. After looking around I saw I could build a CNC machine for around the same money.

It has a 48×48 inch cutting area with a 3hp (2.2kw) spindle.It is built from parts from cncrouterparts and 8020 extruded aluminum. It ran me around $3500 to get running. Parts Li...
