Default Wondering about deleted thread

Can anyone tell my why my thread posted yesterday was deleted? I messaged an administrator but got no response.

Did I break a rule by posting about using my lathe next to my Cobra?

I'm very confused and a little upset with this forum. I always try to post stuff that will be useful for other CAMaster owners. . .

I thought that was a pretty cool and innovative idea...but there may have been heartburn about the destruction (flying wood, bit parts & metal) that might result from the collision of the spindle with lathe chuck & tailstock (which the machine would never "know" was there)...or the utter destruction that would occur if somebody tried this at "normal" lathe rotation speeds. Just a thought.

I wouldn't mind seeing a vid of it in action.

Russ,
I always wondered if the mention of anything other than Camaster supplied products in our posts specific to our machines is persona non grata.

I love your idea but you didn't reconfigure, redesign and fabricate a better Camaster rotary, you used a competitors product irregardless if it was innovative or interesting.

I set up the same soft limits that the recoil has.

I really think the recoil should be built more like a lathe, with the option to run independent of the software and at higher rpm. Really makes a more useful machine. Running a finish toolpath on a 4th axis has to be about the most inefficient and painfully slow process out there.

Routers have been used with lathes in furniture manufacturing for decades. Most built a custom box above their lathe and run a router along it to get the profile they need. I simply used the cobra instead. An excellent use for an excellent machine. I have the older style of Cobra, purchased in 2011. It has been a workhorse in my shop ever since, and I love it.

I guess the thread was moved to the owners section. Not sure why. I thought things were moved to that section when they could be construed as putting off potential buyers. I would hope that all the work I show would promote the CAMaster brand. You can bet I promote CAMaster whenever possible, because I truly love my machine and have never found one I think is comparable for the same price.

I have searched all back of forum deletes and moves and I cannot find the post, I would have been the one to remove it as CAMaster will generally contact me to remove anything.

If you want email me a copy of the vid

Russell,

The thread was mistakenly moved to the owners section.

It has been moved back to your 'Locker Room' section of the forum where you originally posted it.

Sorry for confusion.

Thanks for clearing that up Luke! It was a cool post!

And it's not like you can't hit the chuck on your recoil if you aren't careful (Trust me, it can be done!)

Mike
