Here is a video of a new machine in development. Purpose was more to test multiple tools using a preset Z Zero to bed rather than surface. Model is one of the included clip art. Toolpath with VCPro.

Nice sturdy machine, Gary.

How did you hold the model at the end of the cut? A manually removed onion skin?

For those who hesitate spending more bucks to buy a sturdy machine versus a light one, have a look at Gary's video.

A cheap machine can't simply achieve this quality level and a lot of issues I've seen on this forum can be avoided with a serious CNC like this one.
Best regards

LGM...
You're right on. Material was .9" I took two .4" passes and left a .1" onionskin. A lot of users overlook the importance of good hold down when trying to obtain a good finish. The rigidity of the machine and power of the servos don't hurt either!

About 2.5 years ago I started designing a cnc router build. After buying a few parts, I decided it was going to take more time than I wanted to spend on the project. I sold all of the parts I had accumulated and ordered a CNC Router Parts 4824 Pro. Shortly after I started assembly CNCRP came out with their upgraded Pro that had linear rails. I made a call to them and found they would supply the linear rail conversion to recent buyers at a reduced price, which I ordered. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase their kit; it was very easy to assemble and get into production. I use it for my own hobby work.

Here is a video of my brother and I putting our open build OX cnc machine together. This video shows some of the issues we had when we got all the parts. We got the machine from Hobby-Fab, which I believe in the past couple weeks has went under since their website no longer works.
My machine is 1500mm x 1500mm. I made it on a fold up work bench, since my wife would probably be angry if she couldn't park her car in the garage anymore. lol
So far everything works great. I had to tweak a few things here and there. Like the step off from the limit switch for the x axis to allow it to home without throwing alarms and some other minor things.
The power box for the machine uses a raspberry pi with a built in bcnc program to control the machine using gcode.

Check out the link up top to see what our build looked like :) While your there, feel free to subscribe.

Thanks Ed. I try to make the stuff that the CNC OEM's do not.

First project with Diamond Drag Bit I'm amazed at this CNCEST accuracy The Dragons eye pupal is 1mm in diameter.
I used Vectric Vcarve Desktop very nice program easy to learn.
The drag bit was found on ebay very good bit! reasonable price.

Same machine as what I have. Although a lot of the Chinese machines get a pretty bad rap, the CNCEST seems to be pretty good. Since you have the same machine, do you have power surge/purge issues, especially during storms? I run a ground from both the controller and the carrier of the machine directly to an outside ground. That helped a lot, but still get surges/purges, which could effect my mach3 settings when running a job.
