Spent yesturday doing a tune-up, new belts and V wheels on the #shapeoko3 . After only spending 5 min I was able to get it mostly squared up, sounds and feels better even cutting through this 6061 1/2 plate. These are weld-on billet shock mounts for a rear axle CRX drag car with a press fit spherical bearing . Mounts were designed by the owner using @carbide3d
Free software. He picked it up in a couple hours! Surface finished has improved dramatically but I still need to calculate belt stretch and adjust the grbl. @jorge_at_hcar . Link for the Carbide Create 2.5D software is in my profile for anyone who is interested in starting cad drawing!
Mike (@mikeythemaker) and I just dropped a bonus episode dedicated to CNC. We took some questions from the community, Mike asked a few of his own, and we pondered the age old question of if using a CNC machine is “cheating” if you’re a woodworker.
Hit the @ifyoubuilditpodcast link and give it a listen.
Looking for something new to listen to? Give my podcast a try! Myself, Mike (@mikeythemaker) and Kyle (@rrbuildings) record a podcast called ‘If You Build It’ and as Mike like to say, “it is straight 🔥”.
What do we talk about? Pretty much anything and everything! Tools, instagram, business building, safety, and anything else that comes to mind. .
We just dropped episode #5 today, head over to @ifyoubuilditpodcast for the link and some more details!
