Re: Shapeoko 3 - 4' x 4' - Prototype #1

I can't see how an upgrade to the ShapeOko3 that goes from 256 square inch (16"x16") to 2304 square inch (48"x48") work area won't have a reasonable cost to it. That's almost a 10x increase in machine capability. Oh, I don't really have space (or justification?) for a 48"x48" machine anyways. I've ...

Re: Shapeoko 3 - 4' x 4' - Prototype #1

Listen I love my machine it's just too small and we were told how easy it would be to make larger. +1. I've planning from the beginning to make the machine larger once upgrades were available, and was pretty disappointed to eventually hear that the upgrade might cost as much as the whole smaller ma...

Re: Shapeoko 3 #513

Sure, I'd be happy to tell you more about the vice. Since Will asked for files, I thought I'd put together a wiki page once I can get an account. But in the mean time: It's made out of maple that I had sitting around, and will accept a board up to about 7 1/4" wide. It was inspired by those traditio...

Re: Shapeoko 3 #513

I apparently cannot sent private messages (yet?), but I see you're in the wikiadmins group. Can you just make me an account? Otherwise, I'll just wait until I can send PMs...

A friend was kind enough to lend me his Shapeoko 2 for a few weeks, and after that I was hooked. Anyways, a few points of interest: * When machining the wasteboa...
