THOSE are some drool-worthy stats!
It happened again. You skipped how the material held in the vise is removed. Do you need to make a clamping bracket when you flip the odd-shaped parts? Or do you clamp it in the vise at an odd angle and adjust the cad model?
-It's OK if you don't understand me. I don't understand what I said either.
As far as I can see, when they are odd shape they are bolted to a back piece, you can see it in his last post of CNC action.
Yeah, it took me a while to work that one out as well.
There are two pieces attached to each other, one is clamped in the vise and had holes tapped in it. The other piece (which will become the finished piece) is attached to this first one with the bolts you see here:
Yeah and it looks like the back piece gets kind of sacrificed to get the front one milled. Get all scratched up. Like the wood piece we all stick under our alum and plexi drilling.
/\ yeah pretty much
oh well small price to pay
I just get the feeling that we are seeing such a small piece of the final project right now, just like the reservoirs in Dark Blade and already this project looks great!
Thanks for sharing with us again G69T, and good luck on the build!
BTW, did anyone else notice that he is a better than average photographer?
Of course it'll be awesome! There's G69T in it!
Thanks to all for your interest and your great partecipation!
Depends of the quantity and the profile type of the material. The price of the raw material is 3 to 5 €/Kg.
The two pieces are identical. The difference are only the bevels on the sides.
It's right! Thanks r4tch3t
I don't have any word! LOL
Thanks guys for the great explanations!
Sometimes, I use the "masks" for the milling of the perimeter piece.
A particular thanks to you!
Great workmanship, can't wait till the next update!
The bronze bushings.
The photos of the CNC lathe working phases.
...and some images of the installed pieces on the supports of the guide.
See you soon to the next working phase...
Awesome work! And I love your photos with the cutting fluid in such focus!
well my hats off to you sir, a CNC mill is something I very much hope to own one day - yeah, screw a fancy car - following with great interest!
wow some more impressive pictures
I start missing my cnc op education days reading this thread. <=)
Keep it up!
I have no idea whats going on, but that looks awesome! Great picture skillz, i know ill never own a cnc, so ill just wish i had your photography skills
As always you pieces are beautiful, I am looking into getting a little hobby lathe, yeah I know a CNC is a completely different thing but they are quite similar.
