X-Carve Pro model and others

Before someone tries to remind me that this is a forum for the CNC Shark, yes I know... I've been here before. LOL Has anyone had any experience with the Inventables X-Carve cnc machine. I was just wondering how it compares to the Shark in terms of stability, gantry flex etc, among any other compari...

Re: Carved and Painted sign for Chiropractor

What did you use for glue? A wood glue or pvc solvent type glue? Excellent work, but I wouldn’t expect any less from you.

Re: Water cooled spindle

It appears that this uses the ER-11 collet system that only ranges from 1mm to 7mm diameter shafts. 7mm is approx .275". The plus is that there is every imaginable size within those limits, just not larger. Although it sounds nice to have a larger 1/2" shaft cutter to do some things, the Shark is re...

Re: Vetric Pro programs

Yes, Charles.. its nice to be able to have the software a couple of places. Personally, I design everything at my desk in the house and then take the .tap files out to the shop computer to run it. I don't even have a mouse or keyboard out where I could design on the shop computer. However, I take tr...

Re: Router Causing Slow Internet

Anyone else wonder how the CNC Shark fits into this problem? Where is the router in proximity to your CNC Shark?

Machine died-- minor maintenance done and back up

Its been a long time since I visited the forum on a regular basis but I thought I would share a problem that I had today. My machine is old enough that I have forgotten exactly where it fits in the various versions that the Shark has gone through but it is the first HD version that came out. I have ...

Re: Project File Sharing

Well the first big leap begins with a small step. Stepping away from Windows vista was a great move and long over due. After living with vista this long I am surprised you didn’t give up on computers long ago. Saving the .crv file should be easy. I think if you click on it the choice to save it or o...

Re: USB Cable not connecting

First of all, from your post, I can't really tell what kind of Shark that you have, what kind of computer you are working with and which operating system that you are using. Have you ever had the Shark and this computer going before or is this a new install. I have somewhat drifted away from the for...

Re: Standard Router bits on CNC

There are all kinds of answers regarding this but the general rule of thumb is that if it is a bit that you could use in a plunge roughter then you can use it on a CNC. If it has carbide cutting surfaces on the sides of the router but not on the bottom then you can't use it because the Shark (or any...
