Magnetic Drink Coasters

Hey guys, long time no chat. Here's a project I recently shared on my channel and didn't want to miss the Forums. It's a hex-tile drink coaster (prototype 1 in Aspen, v2 in Maple), with embedded spherical magnets that let them stick in any orientation. http://www.winstonmoy.com/wp-content/uploads/20...

Re: X-Carve Videos On Youtube - Same for Shapeoko 3?

WoodNDust, I'm flattered to have made your list of interesting channels. In regards to the whole free X-carve publicity thing, the problem is 2-fold. Not only are there a bunch of free machines in the wild, strengthening their ecosystem (including Easel, though anyone/platform can use it too), but I...

Overly Complicated (But Cheap) Dust Separation Contraption

Posting this not because it's beautiful (it's a big orange pig), but because people asked and I hope it helps give them somewhere to start ( depending on your available materials, hardware, and even cutters, you will likely need to make your own adjustments to the SVGs provided ). A few comments abo...

10 x 10" Vacuum Forming Table

Still learning the ins and outs of Vacuum Forming. Based on feedback, looks like polystyrene will make a good candidate for practice. http://www.winstonmoy.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Screen-Shot-2015-06-03-at-8.26.38-PM.jpg http://www.winstonmoy.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Screen-Shot-2015-06...

Re: Belts, Squaring and "finishing" out the machine

There are definitely a couple clarification questions people have asked me and I've been meaning to get to them. I'm on travel this week so I can't grab a camera to point out different features on the S3, but I'll put it on my to-do list next week. Edh, the Wiki is a living document and being update...

Re: Motion Controlled Camera Slider (v3.0)

@Meander: Yea, I'm not sure how the control scheme would work for so many motors. I've thought about it all as individual pieces, but not sure how feasible it is to run off a single Arduino... Maybe a Mega would work... @TomDChi: Stay tuned. I've been iterating on this design a bit... Video in a wee...

Re: Motion Controlled Camera Slider (v3.0)

The flexure is a valid point. One cheap way I've (sort of) countered it in the past is to add more mass & MOI to the equation. A half inch hardwood dowel rammed into the conduit helps stiffen it a reasonable amount. Not perfect, but helps take some sag over unsupported spans. Also cheap and can be a...

Motion Controlled Camera Slider (v3.1)

I know camera accessories are a pretty common theme, both myself and others have taken a stab at it before. But here's another slightly different take on making a camera slider, my concept of operations was that I'd use "disposable rails" to make my slider portable. Instead of traveling with X feet ...

Re: Another electronic enclosure for eshapeoko

Wow, that's a pretty slick one. I like the design a lot.
If you ever remake the front panel I'd try hitting the front with spray lacquer, then carve out the lettering, and then smearing an acrylic or other paint into the words/gaps. That extra contrast would look great.

Re: Cooling the endmill

I found one resource on this: http://espace.library.curtin.edu.au/R?func=dbin-jump-full&local_base=gen01-era02&object_id=18869 and that leads me to wonder if there might be some way to make use of something such as this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/12783 to divert the air from a trim router's...
