Very nice. Post a pic of the finished item…
Awesome work Phil, these remind me of the George Clooney Batman movie where he had a seemingly permanent laser light show going on in the Bat Cave for no reason
Well done Phil. My pick is the blue one.
That looks very good Phil, why do you still have a day job?
That is absolutely amazing, Phil. I ordered my X-Carve a few days ago and according to the tracking it finally left Chicago this morning. I absolutely can’t wait for it to arrive so I can spend about 20 years trying to figure out how to use it. No experience at all except the reading I’ve been doing on this forum so I have a LONG way to go.
Dumb question: is the top wood piece (it looks like walnut to me) done in one piece or are there a number of pieces glued to the flat piece? I told you it would be a dumb question but I really have a lot to learn.
super nice Phil! How deep is the pocket for the Plexi?
Very cool!!! Is that Plexiglass? No troubles with it melting?
@PhilJohnson that is beautiful. Any chance you’ll share what bit you used, feed rate, and depth of cut?
@PhilJohnson its awesome!!! How Do you Do the batmobil stand? 3D carved?
You mean .1 inch deep right?
@PhilJohnson If you made YouTube video tutorials on all the cool stuff you do, I’m sure that in a year you’d have a couple of hundred thousand subscribers and sponsors would be throwing money at you. There are a few channels like Bob’s “I Like to Make Stuff” (who’s a member on this forum) who have been able to unlock the golden handcuffs, but I’m sure it’s a lot more work than what we see on camera. I wouldn’t suggest this to just anyone, but you’re stuff is amazing and you’re unbelievably prolific. Just a thought…
Man, is there anything you can’t do?
RobertCanning- not sure if the shipping costs are significantly higher for you but here is a good source that I have found so far: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009AEAG2E/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
This may not be the cheapest around but it has been reliable for laser and rotary work.
Sweet result. Love me some batman.
Wow… Your bed is a lot flatter and level than mine… Good to know tho!
Very nice and creative design.
Amazing! Can you give me the cut specifications? You sad you use a 20° bit, but for the engraving or for the cut or both? Of what cutting diameter? What rpm of the spindle? Thanks!
Thanks! I have two more question:
- how deep for the etching
- i have a quite cut spindle, what RPM do you suggest?
