« Part 8: Finally cutting wood! Part 9 of Legacy Maverick 3x5 Gen. II series Part 10: Class 2 brings even more fun! »

I got off work and completed Class 1 on the Legacy Woodworking Machinery website. I actually did the class once with the video and twice on my own, just so I was sure I knew what I was doing. Upon completion of the class I had G Code for a small name plaque.

I ran out to the shop and used my newly milled and assembled t-track table and Legacy low profile clamps. The clamps were awesome!


They held my 12” x 6” pine stock securely to the tabletop.

I set up my datum position for the front left and positioned my clamps appropriately. It took about ten minutes to set up and I’m sure it would have went quicker if I had more experience. Anyhow, I set up the smart tool, loaded my code, and less than two minutes later—SHAZAM!

The practice carvings turned out just like they looked in Aspire—so cool! I was surprised how clean the pine cut; it was an unexpected bonus. So now I am off to Class 2!

Here are a couple shots of my Legacy low profile clamps in position for the project from Class 1 . . .

Did you notice how I chickened out and used nylon 14-20 screws to hold down my t-track table instead of steel screws like the pros did? :-)

Watching the CNC carve never gets old. Perhaps it is just me and I’m easily amused.
