CNC all the things


#443

Not bad. How deep can you go?


#444

Z clearance is about 150-200mm, Z travel is about 120mm I think, so the main limitation is the tool length.

I haven’t really done anything thicker than 18mm ply.


#445

Is it just router blades, or does it do laser as well?


#446

Does it have adjustable speed or do you set the cut depth less for harder material?


#447

No laser just a router.

Router is on an inverter 5000-20000rpm.


#448

Are these vastly expensive? I’m guessing they take up a fair bit of real estate?


#449

Depends what you want to do with it, the machines that will handle wood aren’t that expensive really:

If you want to hog out aluminium/steel or turn things then you are talking about machine centres that are 10s/100s of thousands.


#450

Project or lemon?


#451

In all honesty no idea, My knowledge is pretty much limited to hobby/self built machines using bits off ebay :smiley:

In theory, so long as the linear drive/bearings etc is all in good condition it might be ok, but rather hard to tell.


#452

Get one,and a mini engraver


#453

I want a Datron.


#454

That would be adequate


#455

Both armboards for Terminator finished today.
Ready for fitting to Acoustic Signature Turntable.


#456

Terminator armboard is situ.
It sounded excellent, there might be something in this linear tonearm business.


#457

Yup.

I think this is a red herring. The real problem with Decca carts is alignment. They are very sensitive to being misaligned and their design makes it difficult to get right. I’ve heard Deccas sounding wonderful and awful in all sorts of arms.

Dunno why you are replying to me Paul. You might want to point out to @coco that he has oafishly and cloddishly left your post behind when attempting his moddingisms

:roll_eyes:

Happy New Year though


#481

It’s hard to keep up when sorting out the mess you cunts make. Accept it, or I’ll bring in the thread consolidation police.


#482

Ha, hadn’t even noticed. It should of course have been to Adam. @coco is probably a bit pished bet he’s been on the gin again :grinning: happy new year to you too Olan :beers:
