As for the production tools, what amount of air flow do the air cooling nozzles put out to cool the endmill? Is this something that can be done by a hobbyist?

Re: Chips and dust - suck or blow?

I would not use an air compressor to blow dust/chips while cutting. This would create a giant mess in any workshop and coat everything in dust and garbage. Also, the dust from wood, MDF, fiberglass, and pretty much almost any material being cut is very unhealthy for the lungs. So I would recommend t...

Re: How to mount DW660?

DwightEpp,

You can find the original design of the mount on this wiki page. I am also attaching the cambam file which should have all the info needed to mill the mounts.

Re: Shapeoko Countries

I couldn't get cvoinescu's map to work, so I made another. Here is the link. Anyone can edit it and add themselves, but a google account of some sort is required.

Re: Visual alignment mod for shapeoko

wlanfox,

So were you able to align your camera using this method? Ideally once the camera is aligned it would be centered at all z-heights right?

Re: Stepper Motor Shaft round or flat?

I didn't like that either. I used a file to make my own flat spot on the motors. Seems to have worked well.

Re: ShapeOko running with NO heat whatsoever ...

Hmm that is interesting. What feed rates are you using? Also in my experience increasing the feed rates is when you start running into trouble (I could be wrong), especially with the z-axis. With all of this talk of motor drivers overheating, it would be nice if someone (I want to try but have lagge...

Re: Shop Sign (First successful 3D Profiling)

My bad on the font, design stuff that looks good isn't my strong area.

I am attaching the cambam file for anyone interested in the exact details of the milling.

Re: Some success at last but Y and Z one direction only

Way to go. Also its a great feeling to get to the bottom of a problem. Nothing like finding root cause.
