Bed Leveling

Post by bjbsquared » Thu Jul 25, 2013 5:47 pm

Back from vacation.
I wanted to put some progress into the Machine today.
I ordered to threaded inserts for the hold down solution and decided I better elevel the cutting surface before drilling the insert holes for the hold downs.

I used a half inch bit with a quarter inch shank in the DW660. I should have place the bit height inorder for the dust shoe skirt tom hake contact with the work surface. Some extra vacuuming was needed because of this.

When will it be released?
Hopefully at the end of this weekend.

I just want to put out there what worked and what didn't and where I see this thing going next.

I don't think it will be quiet as exciting as the trailer but you never know...

Hello, please tell me what have you cut/drilled/engraved and how it went. I am willing to make a 1mx1m Shapeoko myself but have worries about displacement and accuracy after some running time.
