Assembled Shapeoko 2, TinyG, Foredom Drill 4 Sale, NYC

Hi, I bought and assembled a Shapeoko 2 this summer but no longer have time to use it and it's taking up space in my small New York City apartment. Looking to sell it as well as the TinyG controller, Chinese Foredom drill, drill hanger, voltage converter, and mill bit starter pack I bought for it. I...

Autodesk Fusion 360

Does anyone have any informed opinions on Autodesk Fusion 360? Apparently it's free for "enthusiasts." It looks really cool, I'm just worried I'll start using it and then find that to get the features I need I have to buy a hugely expensive upgrade (I notice a lot of Autodesk software is quite price...

Securing Small Spindle to Carriage

I bought a chinese Foredom knockoff and it's quite small (1 inch diameter) relative to the "universal spindle mount." Any ideas how to secure it to the carriage without resorting to duct tape?

Re: Power Pigtail adapter

I'm clearly like the rat in the experiment that keeps pressing the wrong button and getting electric shocks.

I've ordered the part you suggested plus this one, too. Hopefully one of them will work.

Re: Power Pigtail adapter

Good catch on the 2.1 vs 2.5 mm. I think I would lose it if I ordered yet another incorrect part! I'm going to order this since it has amazon prime 2 day shipping (batteryspace charged 7 dollars to ship the last plug and it took 8 days). http://www.amazon.com/Philmore-Right-Angle-Power-Cable/dp/B000...

Power Pigtail adapter

Hi, Am I missing something or are the instructions on the wiki for the power pigtail adapter completely backwards? These posts on Inventables and the Shapeoko wiki seem to indicate I should order a male plug, which is what I did (the wiki links to a batteryspace page selling the male plug). Unfortun...

Material properties and CNC

Hi, Does anybody have advice about using a block's material properties to figure out things like the optimal end mill bit and feed rate? I'm thinking that if I can look up certain properties - Young's modulus, density, machinability, etc - maybe I can have "more trial and less error." I just don't k...
