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.
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.
Doing a little holiday making at the moment and whipped up these CNC’d toy trucks. Very similar in style and technique to some cars I did a while back.
The weird thing, I was basically doing exactly what Hermey the dentist elf was doing in Rudolph.
I don’t think I’ve thought about using a rock tumbler for about 30 years, but I heard recently they were great for deburring CNCd parts. I found an affordable one and I just started experimenting. My first to attempts have been pretty good, one of aluminum one of delrin. The parts feel great, all soft edges. Now I need to work on the polish.
