Tommey Reed's Custom CNC Router Build.
« on: October 11, 2022, 11:20:50 PM »
Hi All,
I'm building a custom CNC Router that will do all types of milling for future builds.

Very nice Tom!

Take your time building it because you'll use the heck out of it once you get it running.

Also, don't expect crazy good tolerances out of the platform itself.  You can make up
for the lack of heavy strong material by reducing the feeds-and-speeds in your g-code.
I have an old plastic and fiberboard CNC machine where I learned these techniques
to get around buying a twenty thousand dollar milling machine.  Once you know the
limitations of the platform, you're all set.  On my machine the major limitation was
during plunge operations--the gantry would tilt if I put too much pressure on the bit.
The other trick is to only use really sharp bits--they make a world of difference.

I still say CNC is more of an art than a science unless you have tons of money to
throw at a problem.

Hi Dog-One,
I agree, there would be a few adjustments in the future. Weight would and sharp bits would be very important.
I hope to have it up and running very soon, I have to head out to Florida in two weeks for a few weeks of work.

Thanks for the post.
Tom

Tommy, we are going to have to start calling you the man of a thousand builds. You are such a fireball on making things. Always into something new. Rock on dude!
