    Manual CNC machine

    It will have to be a duplicator, as I will have several lines of small text to cope with. I already have something in mind. Been looking at a number of YouTube videos to get ideas. Thanks for the input.

    Manual CNC machine

    Will not be any good as you can only do one letter at a time then you have to reset the machine.

    I am looking at a copy carver, which may allow me manually to do this. What do you think?

    Manual CNC machine

    Thanks for the replies. I am thinking of a template because I want to write paragraphs on wood, like poetry so the writing will be quite small.

    Manual CNC machine

    It has occurred to me that I may be able to build a manual CNC machine for what I plan to do. I basically want to write text in wood at the same depth. As I am not very good at making neat letters with just a router on its own, some means of control of the router would be beneficial. A manual...

    Martin said, "Not sure if carbide create will output the right type of file for the AXBB Controller, will need to check that one," Does anyone know if it will?

    I am also looking at this plus the AMB (kess) milling motor. Both are from Germany. If anyone uses either of them, what do you think about the product. These are not routers but purposely made milling motors.

    weird electricity consumption.

    Electricity Cost Calculator This may help to work out the individual items electric usage. As many have said during this period of high energy costs, turning down your heating thermostats can save a lot on the bill. I have mine at 19c and I wear an extra jumper. As an example, I have a 100...

    weird electricity consumption.

    How big is your aquarium. In winter my relative small one uses a fair amount of electricity at night when the heating goes off. If your computers are Pc type with monitor and on all day these too will run up the bill. I have now got into the habit of turning things off when not needed. I had...

    Martin, what Vectric software do you have. I know that the top one is about £1700 for a lifetime license. It would take a long time for me to recoup that. I also think that I would not get the use out it. May be Vcarve would be a possibility but still quite expensive for me as a newby. Does...
