I have a router table (built myself - obviously ! lol ) but, I use the CNC most of the time ! as an overhead router. Park the spindle somewhere easy to get at, and the correct "Z" off the table for the stock you are machining spindle on, and manually rout away ! :-) That's ace, however I can't do t...

Re: One for the CNC boys

To be fair it can be done on a CNC with a slight alteration in the look.

Whether it's cost effective or not I do not know.

But it involves a 3mm radius round over bit if you use a 6mm diameter cutter.

I think Rich will see what I am getting at.

Re: Drilling hole in dowel without splintering

I would use a pilot drill say 2mm to go all the way through.

Then use the 7.5mm to drill from both sides using the pilot hole as a guide.

Hope this helps.

Re: That 30's look

Looks like a medium oak stain by Morrels.

I think you would need to strip back the old one and then source the timber make the new unit then stain and lacquer the two together.

Re: Laser cutting

Not sure what we will be offering on it yet.

Definitely want to cut acrylic lettering on it, this will be the more intricate stuff that needs a finer radius that 3mm.

I have a pal who has one, so he can do most of our requirement, but its always good to get it done in house.

Re: New toys

Hi Karl

our one is very very old, and served us extremely well, but in the end it wasn't smooth, it was back cutting which we really struggled to fix, which makes me think it was a slightly bent spindle.

I cannot comment on the new ones, all I can say I wasn't impressed with their edgbanders.
