Newbie Check list

Postby acebetter » Sat Apr 21, 2018 12:49 pm

I created a Check List, because as I was learning I didn't do everything on the list and created havoc more than once. 5 weeks in and I still use the list. Posting to help any in a similar situation. Items to add are appreciated.

You should check RPMs after each bit change.

If more than one tool path, make sure you are running tool paths in the correct order.

I forgot these in the past and had less than desirable results.

I'll spare you the long writeup here, and instead offer the following, one of my manufacturing sequence sheets. Like so many things I do, it's a bit overkill :o

Normally I'd make sure there's no proprietary information, but honestly, once these things get well put-together, I actually prefer NOT remembering what's on it, so I don't feel like I can take shortcuts. The excess precision helps allow that to happen, and I can be confident every detail is in the sheet.

You're very welcome, Acebetter.

What I neglected to mention is that all that is for a simple aluminum angle bracket :D

Well, the holes and slots and engraving and other features are in just the right spot for a particular application, and I can pump them out by the dozens, but still...it's a $5 hunk of aluminum...that people pay me $50 for. ;-)
