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...
A short video of the CNC lathe I used to round the columns for the trophies.It can be found here… http://youtu.be/SJ3AeBP_KJIThe turned columns After being fluted on the 4th axis CNC router
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...
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.
This video is my first project video I have made in my new shop. It is a little holder for a z touch plate and has made my life much easier and quickened my setup times. Be aware also that this is my first attempt at producing an instructional video and it is a bit long. Feel free to skip about in the video as you see fit. come to 21st Century Woodworking to get access to free CNC CAM files for this project and many others. Content is growing weekly.
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. :-) ...
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. I decided to go with the cnc machine to join my computer and building things hobbies. Here is the CNC router table that I built. 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...
Once more Keith has come up with a winning machine… first the RouterMaster, then the SlabMaster and a few years ago, the Torque WorkCentre… many of you know I bought one and love it…... Now the machine we have all been waiting for… the CNC Router…Making its debut at the Maleny Wood Expo last weekend… Keith has been making industrial CNC machines for many years and is his passion…this is his first foray into the smaller more affordable machine...
