Re: Project you're proudest of ???

Maybe it is my Watch Winder (posted in an older gallery thread). I made it for the automatic watch collecting hobby of my son. He could only use it for 2 years before he passed away but I am happy to have made that rather complicated thing. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Ee16Esu0_V8/VSnrTL4Y7xI/...

Re: What do you do while the CNC is running?

Put my noise canceling headphones on, lean back, feet on the table, and listen to music. The headphones leak enough machine noise to hear in the background if something is going wrong. Best suited: Hard Rock, Reggae, Irish Folk and Bluegrass. Well any kind of loud music. Occasionally check the phone...

It says 'Edit profile [ View profile ]' 4. 2/3 down that page it says 'Location:'. Change that..... Thanks. I guess I need to w...

Re: Mixed 2d and 3d import

Under "User Control Panel" and "Profile" I can change my email address and my password under "edit account settings" and I see "edit Avatar" but I don't see the "location" input.

Re: Mixed 2d and 3d import

.....Only thing I would have reservations about is the end piece. Very thin through end grain. Maybe zebra wood is tougher than I know as I haven’t worked it.... Good and valid point. But keep in mind this not a 12-gauge shotgun. The recoil is not perceptible and this stock would even hold up when ...

Continued....
I made a new pump lever in similar fashion with improved leverage:

Other improvements are the red dot sight left over from another defunct project and some brass bling:

Still waiting for the longer carbine-appropriate barrel (damn Covid virus).

Mixed 2d and 3d import

First a disclaimer...I am not much of a gun fanatic. That said, I had an old Crosman multipump pellet air pistol (P1322) around that I wanted to give some bling upgrade. Given that this is a cheap $50 piece of equipment, it is actually pretty accurate. The project was to make it a carbine with shoul...

Re: Dog Puzzle

Cool!
I was already wondering if I had made it too difficult for a dog. Our puppy sometimes gets it but when she is very hungry there is no patience and she just kicks that thing around.

Re: Calling all Vectricians for our COMPETITION - Operation SMILE

So, here is an entry that hopefully should qualify as smile-generating (please check out the YouTube link)... We adopted a puppy (Lab/Border Collie Mix) a few weeks ago and she sure keeps us occupied. So, my first CNC project after a 5-months hiatus (move from CA to CO) was a dog puzzle to keep her ...

Re: Constructing a shape as near to a sphere as possible

SoapyJoe and 4D-Thinker, if you are really into polyhedra, you can check out my AnyMiter app to cut the faces. It has a pretty good selection of common ones. I never published the program and used it only myself (I guess the market would be really small...) but it is pretty slick for this specific p...

Re: Constructing a shape as near to a sphere as possible

Hi, I am sorry 4DThinker but your attachment refuses to open-up on my copy of the Vectric software (10.021) I can open it just fine with new version Aspire. It complains about an invalid vector but opens anyway. Are you trying to open with VcarvePro? 4D's method with the molding tool paths is prett...
