Waste Board & Vacuum Mount

Post by BuildMaster » Fri Sep 18, 2015 4:50 pm

New to the forums, I wanted to share my first two projects.

1, I did a standard waste board drilling for 1/4x20 insets, what are peoples thoughts on gluing them in place?

2, Second is my take on a shop vac mount, I was trying to reduce the footprint (I have some designs on further reduction). Some of my pieces need a tolerance tweak or two but other then that very effective so far.

That's a good point. It was one of the things which led me to adding a wasteboard on top of my MDF --- that way the T-nuts are trapped in-between the two parts.

I can understand wanting something beyond the prongs to hold the T-nuts in place --- my concern w/ glue would be messing up the threads w/ gunk.

Fancy! Nicely addresses a problem I had where I got a chunk of debris stuck in my vacuum hose and was mystified by the loss of suction.

I can't afford the loss in Z with added waste board height, right now I'm modeling a taller gantry w/ extruded rail from MISUMI USA.

Nitpicking: the gantry is what rides on the assembly you drew; that is, the X rail and the Y carriages make up the gantry. A gantry is a bridge-like structure that goes across the machine and above the work (although not necessarily moveable -- the bed could move in the Y direction instead, like the ORD Bot, for instance).

Could you drop the level of the bed by adding some feet (feet height=MDF thickness) to the machine?

Gluing insets...
No!

You either have holes that are tight enough that the insets sits solidly, or you get a new wasteboard.
Not only will gluing them make it a real pain to reuse them when the current wasteboard is ready to be replaced, but glue tends to get where isn't wanted, such as the 'inside' threads of the insets.

You're using the SO3 to drill the holes. Which is a nice demonstration of what it can do. But all your holes is now 'inside' the working area only.
You may want to add a few holes outside that area, too.

Your vac mount looks... inspired. :-)

Came across an approach to avoid that, but not finding the link at the moment. :(

The concept was really simple. Put sticky/masking tape over the end of the hole that's being inserted. Stops glue from getting into the hole as it's inserted.

This was from a woodworking guy that sounded like he's been doing it successfully for years (if that helps). :)
