« Part 3: One for SPalm Part 4 of CNCs in woodworking series Part 5: And now the lathe... »

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 shape from the inside to the outside… step over is 0.3 mm each pass…

Just about finished… took about 30 minutes.

Rather smooth… and not too much sawdust.

Just a different angle of the finished job… a light sand and some oil… all finished…

Thanks for dropping by and taking a look…

I can see this as being my next tool
I’m sure there is a learning curve to using this
Can’t wait to see what you make in a few months

Nice machine Larry. Really impressed. I want that spindle.

You could fill that oval with nummy candy and then share it with all of us.

Larry: I use to design machines similar to this back in the 1990’s. The software must be easier to use now. I am sure you will have fun creating your fabulous designs. I envy you.

Larry,
It’s OK for you blokes with all the money!.....Us other poor old ex-Sailors are still out here plodding along at a snails pace, making mistakes everywhere, doing everything by hand …..and there’s not even any left over timber in your scrap bin now for me to scrounge!!

As you said it has produced a very smooth finish and a most impressive job.

Cannot wait to take a look at it in motion, should be even greater in the 3D world.

Keep up the good work!!
