Nice! Did you cut keyhole slots in the back?

I know there was a post some time ago about keyhole cutting, I have several new items I’m cutting that need the keyhole and was wondering if there was a canned method yet…

No keyhole slots on these, I’ll figure out how to hang them later today :slight_smile:

I have seen a few posts on making a keyhole slot, haven’t really tried it yet. I should make a quick g-code file so when I need it, it will be ready.

Looks like there is one in the forums:

This is how they will hang on the wall:

I recommended this…she said no :slight_smile:

If it helps, here’s the G-code I plug in to Easel. It’s a version of that from the project forum page, just slightly modified. Position the bit 1 inch above where you want the entry hole on the material and go (after you do an air test, of course):

I sealed the wood with polyurethane, used a brush for the black and then sanded the excess.

Here they are before I sanded the excess black off.

Ha, that’s funny. When I first saw your post, I was trying to figure out what you were spelling and all I could see was omelet.

I strongly recommend editing my script to go less than one inch. A half inch would probably do. It drives me nuts watching it cut that unnecessarily long slot. But then again… I seem to always be in a hurry.

Add some magnets to the back of smaller ones and put them on the fridge.

Here are the scrabble pieces hung on the wall…apparently, she takes worse pictures then I do. She decided to put them on a different wall, they could have been bigger here. Maybe next time :slight_smile:

I got this one from: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261197907404?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

Bear in mind, GRBL does not support a rotary axis, so other upgrades must take place first :slight_smile:

Quick test just to make sure it can move :slight_smile:

Very cool, what are you looking at using for a controller?

I am going with the Gecko G540 with Ethernet Smoothstepper.
