Cnc maching strut brace endlinks


This video shows how I used my cnc lathe to create one part of my custom BIG strut braces for volvo 240′s. Machining nerds, it’s a Grizzly G0602 lathe converted to CNC with 425oz motors (only at 24v), HobbyCNC board (great!), Mach3 (of course!), and a fancy “just for aluminum” 35° insert that works incredibly well. 10ipm rough cuts at 0.020″ cut, 3ipm finish pass at 0.008″ cut. I LOVE CNC!!!!! Next up, converting my Grizzly mini mill to CNC. All the parts have been purchased, just need the time!

CNC Router – Need help with bits, feed speeds, etc?

cnc router
Chris Fulton asked:


I have a newly built cnc router. Its built off of the HobbyCNC plans. It has a HobbyCNC controler (3 axis) with 305oz motors. The ‘router’ is a trim router that takes 1/4″ bits.

I’m looking for help with some guidelines regarding selecing the right bit, plunge rate and feed speed. I’m cutting some 1/2″ maple, but also want to cut and engrave acrylic.

Is there someplace that gives this type of info?
