Re: New Drag Knife

Back in stock after 2.5 years! The new model features a 7075 AL body (previously 6061). This is good for durability and thread strength. It is gray anodized as well. Three models to choose from. https://cosmos-industrial.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=4 https://cosmos-industrial.com/images/3005...

Re: New Drag Knife

Yes, it is the same as the blade offset. I'm working on bringing these back online. I will update when they are back in stock. Thanks

Re: New Drag Knife

I discontinued the product as I got busy with other stuff and it's fairly difficult to make. There should be a couple other options out there. Thanks

Re: 1st use of plotter pen

Depends on your machine. Might be an manual switch or might need a dedicated post processor that does on turn it on.

I also said this though^^ :) Glad to hear that. Camaster has good support as well. They seem very similar. I want to say Shopbot has been around longer, but don't know.

Re: Shopbot Buddy or CAMaster Stinger1??

So the comparison I made if done today would be: PRS Standard 48x48: $12,200 Camaster SR-44: $12,995 Shopbot you provide a computer, Camaster it is included (with Cut2D). So, there's the difference. For me, I put value on a system that I could plug in and start running. I didn't want to worry about ...

Re: Shopbot Buddy or CAMaster Stinger1??

I went with Camaster a while back. If I remember correctly, the price was lower for a turn-key system and the support seemed to be better. I think Camaster supports the whole machine and Shopbot only supports the software, but I don't know where I heard that or if it's true (this would be during the...

Re: How to profile cut an open vector

I've been doing this recently. I do three passes climb, one conventional and a final climb pass on a hard wood part profile. To get the back and forth, I have made them each their own toolpath. That does pretty well, but there are retracts to z safe between the paths, so I go in the code and edit th...

Re: Building a Tool Database

I sort my tools in the database by material. So I have a section for soft wood, hard wood, hard plastic, etc. Setting the first group up takes time, but copying after that speeds it up. I do this so I can get the feeds rates where I want them and not have to adjust them. Works well for me.

Re: New Issue after "Nose Dive" fixed

I'd vote for 3D machining the inner pockets. Use a boundary to separate the outer and do that will a much simpler profile operation and a radius cutter for the edge. Those vertical lines can also come from bigger chunks of wood splintering off and getting into the cut. You can hear it when that happ...

Re: New Drag Knife

Since some people are asking for it and after some thought, I'm going to expand the design to add a couple offsets. I’m going to offer the following models: 1.5mm offset, 1/4" shank (new) 3.0mm offset, 1/4" or 3/8” shank (current) 4.5mm offset, 3/8” shank (new) I’m going to reschedule some stuff and...

Re: New Drag Knife

I'd think you'd be alright, but I haven't tested it yet. If you want to try, I can give you a discount or something and we can see if it works. info@cosmos-industrial.com

Re: New Drag Knife

#5 is just a choice. Because the blade angle is 45 degrees, if you cut more material than your offset, then try to corner, the leading edge of the cutter will have to go backwards to make the corner, hence this is your limit. I picked a middle of the road value, but I can work with you if you want ...
