Another Name Sign

Over the last 4 or 5 years I think I've made about 50 or 60 of these. They seem to be popular with friends and family and a quick and easy evening project. I had some scrap Bocote left over from a...

For a quick fix you could buy a cheap floor jack from Harbor Freight (~$100.00) and use small "dollies" (Harbor Freight also) under each leg. A Cobra is heavy but this might be do-able for occasional...

Yes it will but you will not be able to easily do vertical joinery. It is possible but there really isn't any place to mount the jig.

I ask that same question when I bought my machine. It really does save wear and tear on the machine but the real kicker is it can't be added on later without mortgaging the house. It doesn't use that...

Pay close attention to Gary Campbell's suggestions. He builds CNC machines and was the head of the production department at Camaster for quite some time. When Gary speaks, I listen.

Did you change the bit size in the toolpath and recalculate or just change the bit at the machine?

I have a stinger 1 with the 1hp (120V) spindle. Never been sorry I bought it. My DC is louder than the spindle. However, it's not just quieter than a router. The spindle speeds can be controlled by...

Jim,

I have not actually seen the statues but judging from the pics they are awesome. Especially since they were cut by slices on a flat table and assembled.

I have Fusion360 and Rhino 6. They are good programs but, IMHO, they are best suited for 3D printing. Most woodworkers choose Aspire or V-Carve because it is better for carving and cutting parts.
