    Poll: Re: Custom Large Glowforge Practical?

    Modifying a Glowforge doesn't make much sense to me when you can buy a more technically capable laser cutter/engraver at about the same price point, especially if you are planning to put money into...

    Re: RAPIDTURN VIDEOS

    I have an early InTurn from back before PathPilot was out but never set it up as the job I bought it for went away. I'm pretty sure that Steve either has or is planning to support Path Pilot so I...

    Re: RAPIDTURN VIDEOS

    Hi Cliff - Good info and thought process even for those of us that don't have a RapidTurn. I was wondering, though, if you'd ever looked into the InTurn 4th axis system that is described at...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    I've been checking for patches whenever SC 12 starts to act oddly, but I only use it a few times per week at most so don't have much occasion to check.

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    I also like the new tool window, but wish there more options for customizing tool profiles, especially for turning tools.

    Re: Buy Chinese C02 Laser located in USA

    Just curious - do you have any lasers available for demonstration in your Streamwood IL location?

    Re: Buy Chinese C02 Laser located in USA

    You might also want to consider Rabbitt Laser (based in the US) and the US reseller of Thunder Laser machines - https://thunderlaserusa.com/

    I'm not sure if the latter stocks all or any of the TL...

    Re: PCNC 1100 Info

    If it has the Series I steppers and drives, then it is worth the ~$800 to upgrade to the Series III steppers and drives. Also the power drawbar is a useful upgrade if yours doesn't already have that.

    Nolan - is there some reason that Thunder Laser doesn't provide a link to the cut files for projects like this in the YouTube video description?

    You might check out the In Turn guy:

    He has an interesting approach to a 4th axis that is supposed to be PathPilot compatible now and mentions a...

    Sorry, but it seems like Newsguy stopped supporting the format used for my web site and I never bothered to try and move the entire site any where else. I still have all the pictures and maybe even...

    Good luck with that - Mach IV didn't have a very good reputation the last time I checked but that was a couple years ago,

    Re: Model C8250

    Keep in mind that Charter Oak seems to be out of business so you might be on your own for support. You might also want to consider why they went out of business. If the cause was a lackluster...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    I only use SC with the Tormach mill and lathe right now, but would like to use a Pocket NC some time in the near future. That's a small, benchtop 5-axis mill. SC tells me that one of the available...

    I bought a Bison chuck from Fowler years ago that has reversible jaws. Fuerda seems to make good quality chucks with reversible jaws as well. I have one of those on a 5C mount for those times when...

    Re: Slant Pro 15L - Some more thoughts.

    Thanks Cliff. I'm an idiot and just realized that the top separates from the blade holder, which should give access to the clamping screws on the OD turning/facing holders on the turret. With the...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    It's not unusual for me to spend 10-50x as much time getting the CAM done as the machining job itself takes but I can go weeks between SprutCAM sessions so am not a typical customer.

    Re: Slant Pro 15L - Some more thoughts.

    I'd agree with all of your conclusions Cliff.

    A couple of questions, if you have the time:

    1. How did you mount that blade-type parting tool in the turret? I have the older style turret and...

    Just found another problem in SC 12 when using SC 11 project files - at least some drilling ops don't seem to carry over from 11 to 12. I needed to delete the original drilling ops (spot and normal...
