CNC Build #1: DIY CNC - phase 1 : planning

08-19-2020 01:28 AM by loupitou06 | 3 comments »

Hi fellow Jocks, Let me preface this blog series by saying I am by no mean an expert in CNC, I own and operate a Tormach and build a CNC router from scratch (see this post : ). But I picked up some useful tips along my journey that I think could benefit the community so take this blog for what it is – just a hobbyist CNCer’s opinion. So phase 1 of any CNC build is the planning: 1. What do you plan to do with your CNC ?2. How big...

Origins and Goals

05-21-2020 03:51 PM by C_rson | 2 comments »

I am in my early twenties just graduating college. In my spare time I have been fantasizing about woodworking through YouTube. I guess I started way back in boy scouts or cub scouts whittling little sticks with a knife. It shifted to various school and DIY projects through the years at home, using what I could find. In middle school, we had a tech/wood shop where I made a CO2 powered car using a few hand tools. There were the kits every now and then for Christmas or birthday that had wood ...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #5: Got the Ceiling Connection on the Hinge Side Completed

11-10-2014 02:06 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 2 comments »

I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...

Birth of a 4-axis CNC machine #8: Control box enclosure - the machine now has a key!

03-17-2014 07:44 AM by DS | 16 comments »

Now that I have all my power supplies drivers and controllers, all those electronics need a nice safe playground to hang out in away from the dusty environs that the machine will no doubt foster. At first I didn’t think I could get a box this nice. These water-tight Nema enclosures are big bucks!But, I found a guy on eBay with a reasonable asking price, ( his wife must’ve wanted to park her car in their garage again ), and I made an offer, sobbed out my poor man’s DIY cnc...

Hey Steve, this post is in response to your comment on my last post in this series…Even though the new CNC router is not yet installed in my workshop, I managed to take my first foray into the dark side… I spent the day at the factory where my CNC is being built… it is all up and running… just a few minor adjustments… Justin will deliver on Wednesday and spend the day making sure I am happy with the machine. So .. with a little piece of Huon Pine clamped...

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 ...

21st Century Woodworking #2: Project 002: Making Inlay Banding The Easy Way

03-20-2013 09:06 PM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 8 comments »

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.
