The Workshop

Workshop projects are for stuff in the garage (CNC, Reprap, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, metal casting, etc...)

I was getting some flex in the Y Axis of my homemade cnc machine (believe it or not with those beefy aluminum extrusions) It was actually twisting... So I had to beef it up a bit with some 1/4" steel bar - here's how I grinded a 45 degree chamfer on the steel for my wheels to roll on!

I'm making Christmas Presents this year on the homemade CNC machine! Here's the first one... A custom picture frame! Check it out...

I've been working on a homemade 4th axis for my CNC machine - here's the pictures and a few videos! I'll be making some parts with it soon! :)

Here's a few pictures and a short video of the first piece cut out on the homemade 4th axis on my Homemade CNC machine

Here's a few pictures and a short video showing off the success of the homemade CNC machine milling Aluminum


These are my posts about my CNC hobby, now to include my new Reprap 3d Printer :)

These are my electronics projects, working with the Parallax Propellor, Arduino, stepper motors, you name it!
