well i do brush all of that off with a steel brush. I have some nylon brushes on the way. My final pass on 3d carves is usually with an IDC 0.015 r 10 degree TBN it leaves very little behind. 8% step 50 ipm, 25 plunge
Knocked out a rear dust hose clip for when I use the PWN dust shoe(not in this picture). Yeah, it looks kinda gnarly, the block came from the scrap wood box.
Beautiful color. What did you use to finish it?
Thought I’d share something I tried on my 1F. This took a lot of fine tuning. Nothing went through to the other side of the brass except for the outer cut.
This is on .015 brass sheet. I took the sea turtle, bent his front legs up and placed him into a reverse cut in the oak. Then poured blue tinted epoxy over him that also has white pearl in it. Made a nice coaster.
Nicely done. A different medium besides wood for inlays. Opening up lots of possibilities.
BTW, items used for the coaster:
Brass: 15° V (1/8" shank) for the engraving, 1/16" upcut (1/4" shank) for outside cut with last cut in reverse with .0005 undercut (removes burr).
15° V depth was .001, speed was 5ipm, plunge was 5ipm, router speed was 2
1/16" depth was .004, speed was 5ipm, plunge was 5ipm, router speed was 2
Wood: 1/4" upcut flat for hogging & outer cutout, 60° V (1/4" shank) at top for both inner and outer V cut. 1/4" ball (1/4" shank) for inside cut at bottom, 1/16" upcut for turtle cutout. Feed 100ipm, plunge 20ipm, cut depth .1, router speed 4.
Easy Cast Casting Epoxy (slow set) from hobby store. 6 hour initial set, 3 day total cure. A tiny amount of blue alcohol based dye & a tiny amount of white pearl flake. Light pass with heat gun after an hour to get rid of any bubbles.
Brown stain is OLD ENGLISH Scratch Cover for Dark Wood
I Used mineral oil. it looks great on cherry
Put this together for a buddy that is retiring. The weather would not cooperate with the painting and finishing so it took way more time than I expected. Used. the CNC to fabricate the rear mount on the barrel and engraving the name and dates of his last assignment.
Nothing big. Just a custom light switch cover for the switches that control my vacuum and air assist for my 1F. Cut out of 1/4 maple plywood using the 24w jtech.
Can you give a ballpark of what you get out of something like this and your area your in? You don’t have to give specifics. Thanks in advance. Awesome work by the way!!!
Do you have this file or sell it? Would love to make same thing for my son, He just got a ender 3s1 pro
There is a local pasta shop that does classes and sells take-and-bake pasta. I was lucky enough to work out a deal with her to get these in the store!
Edit: I should probably clarify these are ravioli molds
Hello Ed … would you be willing to share the Aztec/Mayan calendar 3d file or a link to where I can get it ? Thanks in advance … clock looks cool by the way … the timepiece compliments the calendar …
This is definitely something I’m interested in doing, but haven’t yet gotten around to organizing my design catalog for sale yet.
They look awesome….great job and thanks for sharing.
Did you make them all at once?
Three batches of 9. I yielded 25 of the 27 made. Used my small Catan board fixture to hold and locate the stock. I could have done all of them with the large fixture, but more risk there.
