  1. Re: How to make a multi-layered plywood dragon craft

    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?
  2. Re: WTB - 6 or 8 inch Tormach tilting motorized rotary table

    You might check out the In Turn guy:

    http://www.theinturn.com/Specifications.htm

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

    Re: MichaelHenry's Tormach Move How-To

    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...
  5. Re: Post Processor for PCNC1100 with SprutCam 9 and Mach3

    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...

    Re: I’m looking for a little help

    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: SprutCAM 12 soon

    I've been back on CAM milling projects lately and having very problems with those on admittedly simple projects. I really wish that SC had a facility for saving the revised parameters for a machine...

    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...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    The tool change for the spot drill and twist drill were posted, but there was no move other than in the safe plane. Also, for the SC11 project that was opened in SC12), in the strategy tab and under...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    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...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    It could just be me and a failure to grasp geometrical concepts. VisualCAM is also confusing me a bit, but they have much better tutorials. Jacob at SprutCAMAmerica was planning to do a tutorial or...

    Re: SprutCAM 12 soon

    mountaindew,

    I've had no problems with SC and the WCS on mill projects, only with lathe projects and specifically with SC12. SC 11 seemed to work much better for me on lathe projects. I...

    Re: Looking for advice on buying a laser

    Thanks Storen, I'd just assumed the buyer took a lot more risk. I might have saved quite a bit on my Thunder Laser by buying direct, but too late for that now. Maybe next time..

    Re: Haas TL1

    At nearly 5,000 lbs the TL-1 is a little heavier than I'd be comfortable moving to my basement. Mostly just a hobbyist here, though. If I had enough paying work, I'd give the TL-1 some serious...

    Re: Looking for a good code simulator.

    Sorry, then, that's the only one I can think of off-hand.

    I suppose this one will be too expensive for your budget:

    I (personally) definitely wouldn't buy a laser from an EBay seller. Do Alibaba and the like handle the transport, custom, import paperwork, etc. for the seller or do they just get it to the nearest...

    Re: Looking for advice on buying a laser

    Storen - some, like myself, have never personally imported something as expensive and large as a laser from China and are uncomfortable with the possible risks of doing so.
  25. Re: What CAM product are folks using for the Slant Bed Lathe?

    Thanks, I'll take a look at Titans' videos after I try the Mecsoft VisualCAD/CAM demo, which includes a Turn module. Their Turn Getting Started video made more sense to me me.
