Been milling some wooden Voltron parts, the Blue Lion to be exact. Showing some students how to use the 4 axis mill. Using the fantastic files from Jurica Pranjic.
Once again Donald Bell has been kind enough to mention a project of mine in his weekly Maker Update.
Day 37: Flick Face. Perf board, LEDs, coin cell battery, battery holder, resistors, hookup wire, and springs. I made some whisker switches using the springs from ball point pens I got at the bank. The circuit kind of looks like a face and you get the best results when you flick the board.
Finally, finished an idea I’ve had kicking around for a little while. I vacuum formed some styrene over a stepper motor circuit board, to be a quick custom project enclosure.
I formed it directly over the circuit board. After a little trimming and sanding, the cover fits great.
I had an old Shapeoko 2 in my shop that I never really finished assembling. I had the idea to create configurable stoppers so I could perform straightforward cuts, think Etch-a-Sketch with a router.
I was very pleased with the results. The cuts is a bit choppy because I didn’t lock the 2×4 down too well, but for a first cut, not bad. I think I might use this for planing oddly shaped lumber, making rectangular voids in material, and creating simple slots.
Just finished two walnut pieces for a Gabe BC video sculpture. Glued up the walnut blanks, then turned them round, then on to the 4-axis CNC for some milling, then back to the lathe to finish it all off. Video screens fit inside and original content will be running on them soon.
