DEWALT DWP611

Post by jzhvymetal » Wed Feb 06, 2013 2:23 am

Here is my mounting of my Dewalt DWP611. I was able to cut some brackets before my knock-off Dremel died. Amazon during Christmas had is on sale for $100. I have double makerslide on my X-axis. It has a adjustable speed and will keep the speed from bogging down. It has plenty of power. During testing the Z-axis slip because of debris did not go all the way up when I was drilling a hole before the next move. Using a 1/8" end mill and down 1/2" did not phase it. I was surprised it did not break the end mill. It also has a LED working light. I need to make a air diverter because the it blows air down causing chips to blow away before I can vacuum them. I plan on replacing the bottom bracket with new one that will hold an air diverter and dust shoe. http://www.cambam.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=2341.0

Just for scale, what size is your shapeoko?

What is the rpm range? Can you run it slow <5000 rpm and still have good torque? Does the speed control give you a type of PID control when it bogs down?

Not sure if it can get below 10,000rpm. So far results show that faster is better for 1/8" end mills. I must mention you have to use a 1/4" to 1/8" collet adapter (http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/ordersta ... rings.html) I tried cutting a piece of wood at the slowest speed and it did maintain the speed. My older cutting tool would bog down during cutting. I have no way of measuring the speed so based on sound it looks like it maintains the speed through the cut. It does mention on the specs of the DWP611 it has
Soft-starting motor features full-time electronic feedback that maintains motor speed through the cut

Some Updates

1. New router holder with air diverter and vacuum shoe
2. Custom acme rod mod purchase from ebay. Cut nut and mount with angle bracket.
3. New motor plate with 608 bearing and Nema23 motor mount
4. Z-axis End plate with 608 bearing

Part used
1. Larger MakerSlide. Since the Acme rod was larger I first assembled both plates to the screw then marked and cut required size. Used spare MakerSlide from orginal kit.
2. 1x 9" 3/8-12 ACME Lead Screw w/Delrin Nut (ebay)
3. 2x 608 bearings (ebay)
4. 1x 6.35mm x 6.35 CNC Motor Jaw Shaft Coupler (ebay)
5. 2x Metric Aluminum Unthreaded Spacer, 13mm Od, 14mm Length, M5 Screw Size (McMaster 94669A180)
6. 2x Metric Aluminum Unthreaded Spacer, 13mm Od, 8mm Length, M5 Screw (McMaster 94669A171)
7. 3x Metric Aluminum Unthreaded Spacer, 13mm Od, 40mm Length, M5 Screw (McMaster 94669A201)
8. 3x Metric Class 12.9 Socket Head Cap Screw, Alloy Steel, M5 Thread, 70mm Length, 0.80mm Pitch (McMaster 91290A272)


I still need to make some modification to the dust shoe. I made some dimension mistake where the vacuum hose hits and I lose about 20mm working area. This can be corrected if I move the hose holder forward and further inside. Also I have to mount a skirt because the milled vacuum channel is not enough to catch flying debris.

Looks great!

I am looking to do something similar with the standoffs on the z axis, so it is great to see it working for someone else first!

Also thanks for sharing the cad files for the vacuum mount.
My buildlog is here

New Plate to replace universal Plate

The plate allows for the top to be tied together with spacers. I also add another set of V wheels so the ACME nut has wheels above and below. A threaded spacer was used to tie the bottom V-wheels together. It removeed some of the deflection but I still have about 0.1" deflection if I put some serious pressure against the Z-Axis.

DXF for replacement universal plate. Plate can only be used if the Z-Axis is extended because the Z-axis will hit the top of the plate and not go down far enough.

Tried to open the DWG and DWF files in Autodesk 123 Designer, and Sketchup neither will open them (removed .txt ext) any thoughts on what the problem might be? Both can open other of these files?

Came across an interesting alternate mount design:

(added to the wiki, but thought people might find it of interest)
Shapeoko 3XL #0006 w/Makita RT0701 Router w/0.125″ and ¼″ Elaire precision collets
Nomad 883 Pro #596 (bamboo)
