    Re: how do you protect your cnc PC

    I built a box that the computer lives in. A fan pulls fresh air through a car filter from the back and out the front. I originally was going to have a plexi cover over the front, but turned out I...
  2. Re: Mounting linear rails on aluminum t-slot extrusions?

    This is how I did it. It's been working great for several years now.

    Here is the first idea I used for attachment of linear rails...
  3. Re: Super-PID new low-cost router speed controller

    Well I'm sure everyone has an opinion.

    I found the Porter Cable 690 a good choice for my needs. There was adequate room on the top part of the router. I have a small lathe, so I was able to...

    It sure is.

    I've been using a Super PID for years now. I am a very satisfied customer. I highly recommend them. The router runs much quieter and cooler. The vac system is much louder than the router. I...

    Re: DIY Clamping Methods?

    I made some clamps from scraps. Wood is a lot more forgiving then steel when you crash into it with your end mill.

    Re: Super PID contact info?

    I've been using the SuperPID for years now and would be very disappointed if they went out of business. It's a great product with no other equivalents on the market.

    I did go out to their site...
  7. Re: Replacement bearings for Hitachi MV12...

    I've bought a lot of bearings from Boca Bearings. I've also bought bearings off of ebay.
    I would take the bearings out and measure them (this is where a digital caliper comes in handy) (metric I...

    Re: Favorite Super PID Enclosures

    I put mine in the enclosure box. Wouldn't do it any other way.

  10. Re: 80/20 T-Slot Aluminum Extrusion Series 30-3060

    There have been many successful builds documented on this forum, using extruded aluminum, myself included. Not all extruded T slot aluminum is the same, so your question is difficult to answer. I...

    Re: Limit Switches

    Well my guess would be the H-Y is Home for the Y axis and so forth with the X and Z. I personally would not use these switches for homing due to their lack of repeat-ability (I use a Hall sensor...

    Re: Ball screw Z Axis opinions

    The diameter of the ball screw on the red one is 16 mm vs 12 on the other one. The red one will move 16 mm for every rotation and the other one will move 4mm. You will get a higher resolution with...

    Electronics case

    In ref to your electronics case, if you removed the drive bay hardware, you would free up some space. It is just attached with pop rivets, which can easily be drilled out.

    Re: Broke 1/4" straight routerbit

    Does this bit have a cutting edge all across the bottom?

    Most of my work is small, so I keep the IPM down to the 30 IPM range, the speed in the 10K range and I ramp down to the cutting depth. I...

    Re: FAILED TO START

    Glad to hear you got it figured out.

    The Super PID is an amazing addition to a DIY CNC. The way I have mine set makes it totally transparent when I'm using the router. I specify the router speed...

    Re: FAILED TO START

    Hi Daryl

    When you say the feed back sensor is working, I am assuming that you have manually turned the router shaft and can see the bar graph move from a few line segments to almost filling the...

    This Makita router has a built in speed controller. Have you removed or disabled it?

    Picture wise:
    How about the speed feedback sensor on the router.

    Re: FAILED TO START

    I've been using a Super PID for a couple of years now, problem free.

    What router are you using with it? A couple of pictures may help.

    Re: Wiring Control Box

    I agree with Gerry. I would take that 4 hookup Master kill Switch out of the box. It is complicating things more than they need to be. Do you have a link to this thing? I'm curious as to what it...

    Re: Home CNC - Show off your work!

    Here was a little project that was good to go right off the router. Kind of a unique project, I'll admit. They were a spacer for electric fence (wire, actually) stand-offs. I could not find a...
