Re: Shapeoko or Grbl error

I an running with a synthetos V3 grblShield. I am not sure where the problem may be but here goes. Whenever I draw a something or mill it never completes the circle, square letter etc. Is there any play in your tool? How deep are you cutting in one pass? Are you sure your currents are set well? Are...

Doh! I just discovered that d != D. I must have been really tired when I was looking at that page!

Thanks.

If you are looking for a V bit I can recommend this one!
Me too, but I must be dense tonight...

How do you mount this massive shaft in a DeWalt 660 which can take only 1/8 or 1/4 bits?

Re: DW660 depth increments on different materials

So I would like to ask those of you who are more experienced with the DW660: What depth increment can I get away with on pine? How about oak? 6061 Aluminum plate? HDPE? So, with a double X, and a DW660, I often cut 0.1" with a 0.125" bit in Popplar, Walnut, Cherry, and Maple. Same for HDPE. Running...

Re: How much runout should I expect?

Was the bit straight, not bent? In the collet firmly? Can you see it wobble? Try rolling the bit on a flat surface to see if it is bent... I had a lot of play in the X-Z coupling, which caused the whole tool to wander when pushing along Y. Fixed by tightening eccentric nut, but since this was a pure...

Re: Polycarbonate - warning - newbie question!

One popular technique is to cut in wax, then pour a rubber into it (see Smoothon) to make a mold, then pour your chocolate into into the rubber mold. Rubber is nice as it lets you pop out our pieces easily.

There are lots of tutorials online.

Re: GRBL Freezes while sending a file

I havent run a huge job but this problem seems to have gone away by moving some of the appliances to another receptacle as I described in the previous post. I will run some bigger jobs in the next few days. If I think this is truly the solution to the bug I will post a few lines on the GRBL wiki pa...
