My fireball v90 setup
« on: July 10, 2009, 01:37:00 AM »
hello everyone, I've been lurking for a while as a guest but now I have a machine setup. I took the easy way out and bought a fireball only because all my attempts to make my own from scratch failed bad. any who please let me know what you think ^-^

Looks great Rich, you should be making cool things in no time. Good luck, and have fun.

Thats brilliant Rich. You have a machine to be proud of.

Just one suggestion though - your dust extractor should really be located outside the work area. The filters in these things may not trap the really fine particles and there is always a risk that you would be inhaling potentially harmful dust from the MDF you cut.

I look forward to seeing some pics of the things that you have made with the machine.

I was thinking of making a wet dust collecting on the vacuums exhaust but part of the problem is space, my other thought was to vent it outside except that I'm in the corner of a basement and the only window is through two walls -_-

That's a very nice machine, should be good for PCBs and all sorts of things. Well done, you'll have fun :)

... and you won't have to go round it with a mop like mine, lol

For particles: how about a better vacuum cleaner with an HEPA filter? they'll trap pretty much anything.

Good one Graham.
And here's a quote from some time back that would probably apply also.

Hope your having fun with the new machine. One thing i may mention is that lather on you may want to consider
a small laminate router as they are so much more roburst than that dremel and will run more true.
Have fun and post a picture of any work of arts you do.
Hmm.......They used to call me Richy.... won't get into names.........  >:D
