Re: DSLR Camera Slider

I have been working on the project a lot the past few weeks. I ordered some parts from ServoCity to get me going as I don't think I yet have the ability to mill gears with the precision needed for GT2, or XL. So, I got pulleys, belts, some really sweet super thin bearings, and a few odds n ends. I n...

Re: Cheap Pseudo-Vise (for owners of Misumi beds)

Hey Hans, no, I hope this is not a regular thing, but yes, if it works, it works. I do intend to make, or buy a more robust vise. Chamnit directed me to the idea of low profile vises that are built for direct connection to our mills. It is high on my list of want to dos, but I am mid huge project ri...

Cheap Pseudo-Vise (for owners of Misumi beds)

I needed a way to mill some holes in the end of a piece I am working on for the slider project. It was far too tall to mill with my 123 block clamping that I have used previously, annnnd, I still haven't pulled the trigger on a for realz mill vise. Last night it occured to me that I had everything I...

Re: Misumi flat aluminum extrusions HFSQN4-15250-500

Hmm I don't quite get what's the meaning of "total combined outness", could you educate me a little bit? Hmmm. Right then... Completely and totally technical words there. Those kinds of words should only be used by fully trained professionals. Myes that's the ticket. 8-) That's what happens when yo...

Re: Chanfers? The quest for the finished edge.

For all you CamBam users, I just found this... It's a video on the CamBam page it self. At 10:10 into the video, he talks about how to set up a chamfering op. I had not seen this before, or perhaps, I was not ready to deal with the idea the last time I went through the videos. But it does show how t...

Re: Chanfers? The quest for the finished edge.

I can't find the video that I was watching, but this guy pretty much does the same thing. At about 11:40ish He mentions a Spot Drill / Chamfering mill . This mill solves my question about killing the engraving bit. The question is, how to set it up. In his video you can see the bit is offset from th...

Re: Undercutting Ideas

Heh. Life in the uncanny valley eh? Awesome title. I hear ya, and that is a really elegant idea. Wait... Chamnit, this is your site? I think that it's still a process that I want to learn (if it's a proper process to do on a mill). I see so many places where this could be useful. Perhaps bringing up...
