Title: Frame
Post by: magicniner on November 08, 2013, 04:58:28 AM
I used to make this 102mm x 102mm x 270mm frame at the bench with a drill, drill bits, hole saws, an air saw, grinder and files. The results were functional but a lot of tidying up was required to make it look halfway pretty  ;D
It struck me last week that although my CNC mill didn't have the envelope for all of it, with the right fixturing I could do half a face at a time, this is how the prototype came out -

I wish I'd started learning with CNC years ago!

Thanks John,
The machine envelope being 164mm x 94mm x194mm made for interesting fixturing and work flow!
