Galil and Mach3
« on: June 08, 2010, 09:52:27 AM »
I have posted a video on youtube  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7x7BQ-URq24
The machine is a WeekeBP30, as you will be able to tell I am just getting to grips with the machine, and my camera. I am tending towards  gentle cuts at the moment as I dont want too many broken cutters. The resolution is .001ins and rapids are about 2000ipm. Thanks again to Brian, Kenny and Smurph.   Kit

What a beast! Fun to watch and thanks for sharing.

Now you just need a very large dust collector -  ;)

Thanks,
Dave

Funny you should say that. I am making a cyclone first, in the opening shot of the video I am cutting components for the cyclone fronm 22mm ply. I ran it up for the first time tonight. At the moment I seem to spend more time cleaning up than cutting.

So true, I have a tiny little Taig CNC mill that was throwing chips/dust everywhere so I ended up building a nice little enclosure for it.

Of course, in your case, your building that you're in IS your enclosure for that beast!  :D

Excellent machine...
