General Mach Discussion / Need Info

I am making screws in 1/8” mild steel.
I will drill a small hole in the metal. Then heat it to red & punch a hole the size needed to put a screw in it.
(1)   I understand that after the metal cools down the hole will become slightly larger & the punch will come out easier. Is this correct?

(2)   In the code can I put in a delay of 15 seconds before the CNC machine goes to the next hole, so I have time to heat up the next hole?   What is the code?

(3)   I need a router that runs very slow & powerful to make the screw threads. Is there a router out there & where I can buy one?

(4)   I then need to make the screw threads with a cutter that doesn’t cut the screw threads just forms it.  Where can I get one?

Thanks for the help

Go to internet options & disable downloads in security folder. That will help stoping some of the crap coming in.

Here is what I do. Press stop (red button on left lower corner) on the screen .... I turn off the router & leave the computer on. Next day turn on the router & press start (green button on left bottom corner) and it starts where you left off. I have a laptop but it has no sleep on it. If you have sleep it may not work.

That's a nice looking machine..... What kind of wood did you use. How long did it take to build. Looks like it took you a year.

GooooooooooooooooD  JOB

My 30 yr old son died January 7, 2014. He was a gun nut. He had a lot of guns. My wife wants me to make a small 8"x8" display box for a small urn from the crematorium. I want a 2" frame around the front with rifles & pistols carved around it. Does anyone know where I can purchase the dxf files. I have Aspire from Vectric so a crv file with profiles would be great, so I can size them to fit.



Whats the difference between a limit switch & a Homing switch?

Is there a video or instructions that shows how to install & calibrate both of them them?
