Making a CNC Router #1: Part 1: Assembly

02-24-2011 05:29 AM by KylesWoodworking | 30 comments »

Well I just turned 17 years old today, February 23, 2011, and I have always wanted to make a CNC router. So for my birthday, I asked my dad to get me a CNC hardware and plans kit from www.buildyourcnc.com. Then I went to Lowes and the Home Depot to get a sheet of MDF, aluminum angles, threaded rods, and various other items I needed to make the machine. So the whole weekend last week, I’ve been working on cutting all the parts I need and then drilling all the holes in the pieces. Here is...

Using the new CNC to dish out some walnut… The above pic shows the roughing out stage..[using a 6 mm end mill 3 flute spiral bit – solid carbide]... the technique is called rastering… moving the bit back and forwards… A little closer… Roughing out finished, starting the final finishing path…[using a 3 mm ball nose bit] Further along with the finishing pathway…in this case the machine is running in offset mode… moving around the s...

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...

08-04-2013 08:30 PM by degoose | 16 comments »

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 ...

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...

Making a CNC Router #3: Part 3: Updates and Need Ideas

03-16-2011 01:36 AM by KylesWoodworking | 11 comments »

I have not had much time or money to work on my CNC lately, but I did make some progress. Here are some of the things I added to it so far: I added two shelves for the computer and electronics to go on: I also bought 4 cheap casters from Harbor Freight and installed them: Also, on an unrelated note, my dog loves the new shelf and sleeps on it all the time: Now for some ideas: I need some where to mount a computer screen to use for the CNC and I have a few ideas, but...

Making a CNC Router #2: Part 2: Making the Stand

02-26-2011 06:57 AM by KylesWoodworking | 10 comments »

Well today I didn’t have school due to a snow day, so I figured I would work on my CNC some more. I knew that I needed a stand to put the CNC on and to make it sturdier, so I was off to Google SketchUp! I wanted to make the CNC about counter height, so I made the stand 34 1/2” high plus the 1 1/2” table of the CNC makes it 36” high overall. Here is the simple design that I came up with using 2×4s for the stand: So I was off to making saw dust!First, I cut f...

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.
