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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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 ...
