So which one does the Cnc4newbie one have?
I have used them, and they all seemed to wear out too fast. Good when new, but there is not enough self-adjustment in the design IMO. I still have some new spares lying around here somewhere. I no longer use the crappy machine I had them on (an early kit made by John Hansford, the Microcarve guy ).
This is exactly what his response to my email said. I’ll be checking mine later this week when doing some other upgrades.
Back to Vcarve, have you tried two sided for doing a crib board storage pocket? I’m playing with that idea now.
Have you seen my pocket share???
Yes I had seen that.
I’m looking at taking a slightly different approach using an undercut bit:
And plan to use Vcarve with some lead ins and such to make my groove for the cover.
I’m looking at the two sided milling part of v9 to help (hopefully) make it easier
That’s exactly what that is.
I use Dumpster CNC ones on my machine… 1/2", 5 start ACME rods. been working well so far
I wonder if with a few parts
Anti backlash nut
We could upgrade to 10mm acme which has brass nuts?
I have the Z plunge from Kyle Kronyak and so far it has been working perfectly.
However, if and when I do start having problems, I have been thinking about a ball screw.
I don’t know if it has been discussed before or not, but could the Z axis be upgraded to a ball screw?
What would the cost be?
Are you referring to your CNC4Newbie or your Microcarve?
I had a thought about the microcarve upgrading the rod to a faster rod, especially if changing anti-backlash nut.
Either way, it should branch to a new topic from your Vcarve thread.
Aspen is also very white
Cnc4newbie. I don’t know if it is or is not a brass one already.
But with the microcarve one, the bearings are the issue. I haven’t seen any play in the nut.
Working on a new series of models… Faces
That would be good for the front of a birdhouse as you had done in the past.
I may have to purchase one of these from you.
I price him probably around $5 to $8
First one is on the website for $5.
Second one in progress
