Re: Meet the eShapeoko #344

Most excellent Nixie clock!!! I have built the guts for mine, and it is working well, but it's all just wires n tubes just waiting for a case. I just have a list of projects I am working through and the clock is deep in there. Congratulations. You have to feel good about that. Did you program from s...

Re: DSLR Camera Slider

First few shots out of a mounted camera with the automated slider at various speeds. I was out cooking brats for dinner, so I was just shooting the deck railing as it was right next to the grill. The camera plate has a little bounce that's a little bothersome, but this will be corrected once the new...

Did you cut each segment and assemble, or mill out a octagon and route with a roundover?

Re: DSLR Camera Slider

It's alive... ALIVE. This is an update to my camera slider I have been working on. This is a major step to this thing being a fully functioning death star. The end goal will be something I can do moving time lapses as well as super smooth slow dolly shots with panning, tilting, and focus pull. So......

Re: Coolant or lubrication?

I know that this is a coke vs. pepsi, or tastes great / less filling argument... but with the right speeds and depths, you can cut without either. I have had a lot of success milling at 500mm with .15mm - 2mm passes. This is with a 30K rpm DeWalt spindle.

Re: My rubberband gun project.

Right... so... amazing project. Ghaw, too many questions... I'd like to ask about how you finished it. What did you use for stains? Or is it just an oil? Did you stain, then glue, or glue then stain? Is the glue the only thing holding the hinges in place? For the front logo, is that all one piece? D...

Re: Aluminium - load on machine

Having now done many jobs in aluminum, I would say keep the speed up, and the depth of the passes small. I did take an 1/8 at one time, and only one time, not by my choice, but of my doing :roll: . The result was not pretty. The single flute endmill was the thing that made it all work smoothly for m...
