Re: Tangent between two circles

Yes Michael, I came to the same conclusion. Will Vectric pick up on this discussion or should I notify them some other way? It's really a useful feature.

Thank you gentlemen, I thought I was doing everything right according to the manual but it wasn't working the way I expected.

Re: Beer Taps - Part 2

Much obliged for the detailed laser info. I have a ShopSabre machine running WINCNC so I think an add-on laser would be difficult to do. Another concern I have, is that my gantry is heavy steel so I don't think the mechanics would like thousands of rapid, short moves typical of laser engravers.

Re: Beer Taps - Part 2

The laser assembly sits 1/8" above the workpiece being burned as it's focused 1/8" below the bottom of the protective shroud. I made a rough measurement for you and you'd need 85mm minimum from the bottom of the chuck to the top of the workpiece. Thanks for the info. A couple of more questions if y...

Re: Welcome to the new and improved Vectric Forum!

I like the wide outside space because my eyes don't have to travel so far on a wide screen monitor to read the text. Like others have mentioned, the white background seems a bit harsh. All other improvements are great!

Re: Wooden top for bandsaw
