General Mach Discussion / 2022 CABIN FEVER EXPO
« on: January 04, 2022, 06:35:39 AM »
The Cabin Fever Expo in Lebanon, Pa  is still on for 1-14 & 15 this month.
Didn't see Artsoft listed as a vendor.
Hope to see a few of you at the show.
 
Yes I am well and  it's been a while since on the forum.

Take Care,
RICH

A die attachment for easy / accurate bullet seating adjustments. Also has info on gauges worth making.

See attached file.

Not much machining to do for this project. I wanted a small, light weight, solid and easily adjustable pistol
rest I could take to the range which could be used for any pistol size. This rest allows one to just sit at the bench
in normal position and not be bent over when sighting the gun.The rest  will work for a small pistol like the Ruger
LCD to the large frame S&W 29 with 8” barrel.

Item #1 is a 1 ½” diameter base and allows for  2"  of fine adjustment and has a locking collar.  The small base
rest does not interfer with  one or two handed gripping of the pistol.  
  
Item #2 allows for 4" of front and 3" of rear height adjustment. The front pad has a large round filed into the
soft rubber pad.

Item #3  the bottom base, has four leveling screws and the grip bass is slotted / can be rotated 180 deg to provide
for a wide range of horizontal movement ( 2- 9”+).

Tested the rest out at the the range and works like a charm. :)

The attached is just quick write up on making a set of custom pistol grips.
CNC was used to probe the gun frame and create a dxf from acquired points.
Internal machining of the grips were then done.

Just having fun,

Finally made a universal gun sight tool. Still need to do a few tweaks and make some things for it.
It's robust and calculations done to confirm what was done. Not too much CNC was required.

Attached file sheds light on the influence of machine configurations and feedrate on probing.

G-Code, CAD, and CAM discussions / FUSION 360 - LATHE
« on: February 07, 2017, 08:49:04 AM »
Thought I would start a thread on using Fusion to model and generate Gcode for the lathe.

I just started "playing with it" and a friend was kind enough to provide instruction on how to sketch and model in it.
Like all new software one tries you just need to go through the learning curve. Generated code based on a .cps ( post processor )
provided for Mach3 lathe which can be downloaded from Fusion site.

Frankly, rather impressed with it and it can do a lot.

I'll post more on my learning over time.

Would like to change the XMode in lathe from or to Radius or Diameter via button script without going into configuration> Turn Options.

Is it possible?
