Ive been lucking around the forum for a few weeks, Reading, Learning etc. So thought i would finally put up a few pics of my set up etc.. (don't laugh to hard at my little start up machine..)
First pic is my setup. Second pic was my first drawing in Cut2d and then put into the CNC and Yes
... It worked, Was my 2nd proudest moment, as i had never used a CNC machine before in my life and managed to do that cut within 2 days of setting everything up (must admit Vectric software does make it easy
) After running my business for the past 15+ years with doing everything by hand with jigsaws , table saws , hand saws etc... Im now like where have you been all my life Mr CNC Router
Ive done lots of simple 2D cuts , lettering etc over the few weeks of having it. But the 3rd pic is my proudest moment.. Got some free time so designed/drew up and proceeded to cut and put it all together, my dust boot for my machine..
I read lots of threads on this forum about dust skirts other had made and got lots of ideas etc..
When i finished it tonight and got all excited that it worked the wife just LOOKed at me with a blank look as i was yelling... It worked... It worked....
So yeah i went back to my work shop very quickly muttering a few words under my breath...
Hope you enjoy my little piece of paradise..
And yes I'm already planing on getting a larger cmc machine already.
Dont tell the wife..
