Re: China spindle: 1.5 or 2.2 kw?

Hey Will, thanks a lot! Now i understand. Did you already make a decision regarding your spindle. I am still not sure which one to get. I think 1.5 would be enough but the 2.2 takes much bigger routers (8 mm and more) which could be a real advantage. On the other hand there is the really massive wei...

Re: China spindle: 1.5 or 2.2 kw?

Hey WillAdams, thank you very much. Unfortunately i am not sure if i understood you. English is not my native language and therefore i did not fully understand the meaning of "barely loading up". Does this mean the lifting capabilities of the z-axis or the spindle itself and its power? thanks a lot,...

China spindle: 1.5 or 2.2 kw?

Hey all, i currently operate an eshapeoko with a Proxxon ib/e which seems to be dying soon after only one year of usage. I am currently thinking about the upgrade to a china spindle but i am a little bit unsure about which one to get. I did not find any information about which material the 1.5 or th...

Re: Pockets > Some »rounds «a little bit too deep

Hey! thank you for the in -depth information! I tried what you wrote and changed the direction but i t even led to a worse result! Does the fact, that less complex pockets get better or even very good help anything in identifying the problem? I am going to attach the gcode but as far as u can see it...

Re: Pockets > Some »rounds «a little bit too deep

Ah! Ok! I thought you were talking about the feed speed. I did not yet do anything with the $5 but i made a dump and it told me 500 mm/min as the default seek speed which may be to much when considering your experiences. I will give it a try today! Maybe one more thing: I use nema 17 (42BYGHM809) on...

Re: Pockets > Some »rounds «a little bit too deep

@enraged: ok i will give it a try although the rod seems to be lubricated well. thank you! @jhlit67: hmm. Maybe ... What do you mean with "rapid speeds"? Do you think 500 mm /m is too fast or did you mean the speed of the z-axis? I do not know if i can select a different speed for z in cambam ... th...

Pockets > Some »rounds «a little bit too deep

Hey all, i am sorry but i do not know the right term for this. »Round« means the incrementing path which makes the pocket. I used a 1 mm 2 flute endmill für milling the pockets (500 mm/min, 0,7 mm per pass und one 0,1 pass for the finish pass). Around the islands (in the attached picture) you can se...

Front- and Backside milling: How do you align it?

Hey all, i tried to find out a good strategy for milling front and back of some piece of wood but i did not have very much success. In my case it seemed that i always have some offset. My last effort was drilling a hole through the whole wood so i can find some reference point for my front- and back...

Re: Chris Buildlog

very very nice! How did you connect the extrusions of the box? Is there a special part for this?
