Re: Stand off signs with led

Vaccum table

I saw a post about a vac table using motors from lighthouse, I was just wondering if 2 shopvacs would have as much suction as 1 of the motors.
The motors are $140 and the 5hp shopvacs are on sale for $40 I might buy 2 or 3 shopvacs if it would work.

Re: Square trestle leg profile

Cutting those on the cnc is slow, it takes about 22min per side, I cut the blocks and flat section on the table saw and screw them on to the pedestal When the pedestal is cut on the cnc it needs almost no sanding and while it is being cut I can get the table top finished, so it saves me a lot of time.

Re: Square trestle leg profile

I make tables similar to that, the blocks on the top and bottom are done seperate on the table saw and router table because they are not router bit profiles and would have to be carved if done on the cnc. I use the indexer to make these and edit the code so it will cut the first side then rotate and...

Re: Instructions or Class Please

to do a taper leg use the 2 rail sweep and draw a vector at the end of thew leg and another where the taper starts-those 2 vectors will be the rails then draw an angled line for the profile.
The 2 rail sweep is explained in manual in the help section there are also tutorials on it
