    C'mon java. there's 120k views on this thing.. surely you can finish it off? surely you'd want the business that could be generated by saying you're now taking orders for parts?

    Great project and I think that Javadog just wanted to be that 666 guy :hehe:

    Hopefully he'll make a comeback some of these days and gives us the grande finale of this thing.

    It seems to be the way of Homebrew CNC project logs here. They get to a workable stage and then the builder forgets to update the log because they're too busy using it or they move onto greener pastures (CNC forums). I can remember at least one other worklog petering out the same way.

    We have a pool going at work :)

    So Java... we have a pool going at work about what happened to you and this project... I say you got your head stuck in the bread mixer of the new bakery you were going in on.. and my buddy "knarls" thinks you milled off your fingers and can't type anymore....

    You inspired us all to collectively try and build a prototyping CNC for delrin and stuff like that... we'll see how it goes but we all really want to see the finished product.

    Cheers,

    Mule

    Lo!
    Me thinks there will be a linch mob formed in the near future that will only be pacified by some serious CNC modding based video's. Not good!
    I want too see the end of this too, it is amazing so far!

    why would he need that when it is is going to be automated and enclosed. it may be a good backup, but it is not nessicary.

    Me and a guy from work have plans to build a 1w laser cutter/engraver and mount it on a custom cnc machine like this one.

    Yes, all open machines I have ever worked on at any company that took safety seriously, had foot switches. Well, most anyway. I'd say all machines that were open and had only one operator and required that operator to be present while in operation. Some, like paper cutters, actually have a foot switch AND another button, so the operator is required to have BOTH hands out of the way.

    But no closed-system CNC I have ever seen has a foot-switch. You can walk away while it runs. However, they do have an interlock switch on the cover to keep you from opening it while it's running.

    The pieces will not be moving any faster than a normal router would be moving them, so if there is a concern that the cover is not strong enough, then simply wearing safety glasses while in operation, combined with an interlock switch should be plenty.

    So you are right, safety is always a concern, it's just not always a foot-switch.
