finally got the time to really get the spoil board dead on squared up and ran a few pieces. This lap top will not open a jpg file format so no pictures.
But the timing was perfect to carve something for a really good friend of mine that passed away yesterday, unexpectedly. Well his family, He was a believer in Jesus, and a really good friend. I was in the process of staining some wood to carve for something else, but it was perfect for carving for his family too. I was really glad I had the cnc router when I found out he passed. My mind went straight to, what can I carve for his wife and children. It turned out great and dead on square and straight as well.
I had had tried to set up T tracks but that turned into a flop. the clamps were too tall, so I took it all apart again. I homed the machine, dropped the 60 degree v bit into the spoil board a few thousands and cut the spoil board in Y both sides, and in X front and back. Laid a piece of T track on the left side Y, clamped it, and screwed it down. A 3 inch piece of mdf 12 inches long laid square to the T track. This piece was centered with a pencil mark on center where I can carve multiple pieces one right after the other, by only barely marking the front center, tiny mark, lining it up, clamping it tight quickly, turning the router back on, and touching the run button in UGS.;)
I have my garage wired up now completely off the house by itself with 3-20 amp circuits. lots of led lights, more coming. Mega V squared up dead on, I can see clearly now as well.
Note on the Mega V , Z homing switch. The screw that triggers the Z homing switch needs to be about perfectly in the middle of the bracket, NOT SITTING ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HOLDER! With the screw in the bottom it lets Z barely go up to high !
You all have a great week,
God Bless you all,
Ray
