I think he is wanting to engrave and work with acrylics but not sure
He lives over on the IOW so I dont get to see him often
hence not sure what he is trying to achieve
thank you, my son is now reviewing the alternative machines but has stated he is tending towards having a go at constructing his own.....
Could/should be interesting
thank you to all that have commented
this is exactly what I needed - I will pass the above onto my son for further investigation
you obviously type faster than me...
cheers for the link
Ok So I have spoken to my son and the "working Envelope" isn't an issue
based on the above what would be a reasonable entry level type of machine to go for?
The programming side of things isn't an issue as he is a professional Computer programmer by trade
Thanks Ian, Glad we checked before he spent his money,
Thank you for the comment
Pleased I asked the question
Is this any good for machining acrylics and poss Aluminium or soft metals?
looking for comments on the following equipment
My son is looking to get into CNC for his model making
|Thread: Do you clean your workshop at the end of the day?|
Only when the machines disappear under the swarf and I can't find any tools on the bench
Then it gets a deep clean that can take hours.......
But its such a good feeling when I keep finding my tools that I thought had gone walk about..HAHA
|Thread: What method do you use to find center height for your lathe bit?|
I use one of these and it works for me - nice and simple
|Thread: Easy Button Die Storage Solution|
It depends on how you keep your workshop conditioned surely
mine is dry and warm in the UK and I have never had an issue of rusting due to damp conditions
just my 10 penneth
|Thread: Warco WM16 machine vice|
I have the WM16 and that's the same vice I fitted but as stated I have not needed the swivel operation yet
It is handy if you do need the vice offset and the height isn't an issue either
|Thread: Easy Button Die Storage Solution|
For me I like it - its simple and functional and easily stored
|Thread: Metal Bandsaw - Chester H80 or Warco CY90|
Morning Ian, I have the Warco CY 90 and not had any issues after I re aligned the main drive wheels for the saw band and adjusted the the blade guides to cut vertical
I have cut quite large dia bar both ally and BMS with no problems
Had the saw now for a good many years
|Thread: Strange clamps|
Plasma, I have sent you a PM
the parts must have been quite small as the largest hole in the guides is only 4mm and goes down to 0.5mm
overall length of the base is only 200mm
thanks you for your description, combined with the others it now makes sense as there were also some end stops to butt up against so that what ever was being drilled could be replicated
I have uploaded some more photo's of the both sets that I have, they even came in there own wooden protective boxes with cut outs for each of the various parts
Now I just need a use for them
yes that correct the different screws all have different dia holes through them and are hardened
So its called a cross drilling jig and so assume that as Neil A says i guess if I need to drill a round bar/shaft then its clamped and use the setting screws (guide bushes) to control the drill
Many thanks for this info
looking for help in identifying these clamps I have been given.
Here are the what I think are some kind of setting screw note the head
I have 2 sets of these but have no idea what they are used for
I have more photo's in my album - Clamping tools
