Re: Need PCB Milling Settings

How many boards do you think the 0.0118 bits will last? They are quite pricey compared to the 0.1mm 10degree V-bits that I bought from ebay, though I'm on my third bit at the moment.

Re: Need PCB Milling Settings

Looking good! I'm going to order the .0118 two flute end-mill and give that a try, it looks like it'll work based on your results.

Re: Interested in Shapeoko v2 for PCBs

Thanks for the tips Edward. I'll have to take a look at the auto leveler in the new dev of GRBL soon. Doesn't look pretty but I did make the platen and it seems to work fine. I've stopped using any WD40/fluid to help with the milling. http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m35/alexigs/th_IMG_3444_zpsb0c...

Carriage assembly - understanding the notes

Hi all, I'm building my Shapeoko 2 and am up to the step of assembling the carriages when I read this note and it's a bit confusing to me: http://docs.shapeoko.com/carriages.html When attaching V-wheels and Smooth Idlers, push them away from the horizontal centerline of the plate --- this will maxim...
