Re: GrblGru = Free 3D-Simulation for ShapeOko2

Hello and thank you for adding to the list of freeware programs that are available. I downloaded your 7z file, unzipped it, (after downloading an unzip program that would do the job and installing it) and it unzipped. All the samples appear to be there, and the install program as well. The install ...

Re: KentCNC Dust Shoe

Do the bristles flex so much they could get caught in the end mill? The flex of the 2" shoe isn't a concern from what I saw. When the motor was off I pushed the bristles inward toward the bit. They cant reach the bit at all. Here's a video I took with the 2" skirt in place and in action- https://ww...

Re: KentCNC Dust Shoe

The 2" dust shoe worked great. Here is a picture of some aluminum chips that might have got away from the dust shoe; Aluminum chips.jpg I think these were left behind when I took the shoe off and placed the brush there when changing bits. The SO3's work table and part are clean. I have not tried it ...

Re: KentCNC Dust Shoe

Do the bristles flex so much they could get caught in the end mill? I am just starting to cut aluminum today so I didn't have the dust show on so I could watch how my feeds and speeds were doing. And the bits I am using are shorter bits. Ill try the dust shoe when the 2" bristles come tomorrow. - I...

Re: KentCNC Dust Shoe

I made some adjustments to the KentCNC dust shoe and fits well now. Simple hacksaw approach. I was hoping I could remove enough material to get the shoe to fit while not cutting into the silicone holding the brush. I don't have a belt sander and not sure how acrylic responds to heat from the sander....

Re: Losing Connection in Middle of Project

I have tried a lot of different things to combat the issue of the Dewalt DWP611 loosing its communication with the computer. I don't even want to try to update everyone here with everything I tried. But I do want to share with you what I found today. My router would run a job and loose communication...

Re: KentCNC Dust Shoe

I bought the KentCNC dust shoe with a 3" brush for the Dewalt DWP611. I am going back and buying a 2" as the 3" was too long (unless you were working with a long bit). Anyone have one for the SO3???? I got mine yesterday and tried to put it on but the shoe needs to have some material removed from th...
