  4. Re: LMS 3990 / HeavyMetalCNC conversion - backlash problem.

    I used to have the same machine, check the thrust ball bearing on the Y Axis bracket, make
    sure that isn't the cause of the backlash.
    Just a thought.

    Re: Can this be modeled is Solidworks?

    I noticed you made a prototype using some formable material.
    I was a member of TechShop Detroit before they closed.

    Re: Need help - dovetail/gib oiling

    If you have the mill apart, drill and tap some extra holes to mount
    knurled knobs to trip limit switches.
    I did the CNC conversion, oil gun works O.K., not much room
    to use tubing and fittings on...

    Re: Need help - dovetail/gib oiling

    I drilled and tapped some 6mm holes, added 6mm grease fittings, and used an oil gun.
    Drill through the gib, and mill a channel.

    Re: tips for 304 st st plate

    The description on the tips indicate "some stainless steels", check that out.
    The flame cutting doesn't help either.

  19. Re: What kind of file extension for image to be engraved into wood?

    Usually a CNC mill or router will require a .dxf file that will be converted to G-Code by a program such as SheetCam etc.
    This will be used by another program, Mach3 etc. that controls the actual...

    I agree with Leeway, slow down to at least 150 IPM and work from there, is your voltage around 115,?
