Re: Cut into Aluminum Bed!

I'm not sure about the bit and you don't have to flip the bed over just use a spoil board. They can prevent a lot of damage

Re: I can't figure out how to make the arc i need

Thank you Sharkcutup. Mine does now measure evenly all the way thru. For some reason it plays a trick on my eyes and doesn't seem right. I appreciate the help and if you don't mind another question. Did you manually input arrows and 1.75 between the lines for the visual or is there a way to make the...

Re: I can't figure out how to make the arc i need

I can't figure out how to make the arc i need

I'm trying to make a pocket path in an arc shape using the draw arc feature. The arcs I need are not a perfect arc but more of a banana shape. The width of the pocket needs to be 1.75" along the entire path. My problem is that I create the first arc no problem then I make the second arch and it's cl...

That's really nice! How do you paint and stain and all and end up with clean defined edges?

Re: Router Bits for Engraving

Hey Alan, you may get a better response if you post your question under a category other than "CNC Shark video's". I'm somewhat new at using a CNC myself (couple months). From what I've seen, including myself, most use straight end mill (big ones to clear the pocket), V bits of different angles, and...

Re: Am I the only one who keeps losing controllers?

my experience thus far has been frustrating. I also have/had connection problems. on 3rd controller for different issues, such as x axis motor stopped working, then the z axis. then the z motor was too hot to even touch and making strange noises when sitting idle, etc. but I'm happy and optimistic i...

Re: Am I the only one who keeps losing controllers?

Don't know if you've sought help yet Jerry but my first controller lost did the same thing.
