Re: ZAxis Assembly Interference

After finding this picture, I'm no longer scratching m...

Re: Black oxide washers?

Apparently the 1" version of the spacer is now correct, just use it. Done. For the eccentric nut, these used to be available in a form which was a spacer and required a washer and a nut — if an M5 will fit through it, that’s what you have. If not, somehow one got through unthreaded. I'm pretty sure...

Re: Black oxide washers?

Couple more questions... I'm about in the middle of putting the X carriage together. After several minutes of trying to get it onto a bolt, I took a close look at one of the eccentric nuts and find that it's not threaded. Any chance I'm going to find one of these at a local hardware store or do I ju...

Re: Will the real DeskEngrave please stand up?

If I had to guess, I'd guess that this doesn't buy you much over creating path-followed-text in inkscape then exporting that as svg and running it thru your favorite gcode generator.

Fewer steps but doesn't know many other tricks..

Re: Black oxide washers?

this is a minor one, can't see it making a real difference. That was sorta what I assumed but it was a difference from the BOM that nobody else had pointed out, so I mentioned it anyway. FWIW the B.O.M. on the wiki notes both black oxide and stainless steel. I believe you but I thought I looked for...

Re: Guitar bodies

Drunkenwood over on youtube just posted a video today where he used a CNC to cut part of a guitar body - did the rest on a bandsaw to save time (godless savage). If you can't find anything elsewhere, shoot him a note.. He might send you the one he used.
