Default Dug out and fixed the CNC Router

Finally got the CNC router out of the corner and running again!

One of my friends knew I had this thing and asked me if I could make them a lighted acrylic boat sign. I guess I have to find all the tooling and get it back in it's spot too.

I don't know where the vac went for the vac table, the sacrifice board don't have holes for the vac anyway so that don't much matter. I just ordered in some aluminum T-Slot track thinking I'll put that down about every 6" and then rip the sacrifice board in strips to go in the middle of the T-Slot.

I didn't realize how much space this thing was taking up sitting in the corner!! It's got a 6' x 10' x 6 cutting area which should be plenty big enough to do his sign haha.

It's a Precix 13100 think it's a 1999 model... Should be fun to start playing with again.

I got the T-Slot in yesterday and went out to the shop to see what I need to do to put it on. Anyway like I said earlier I don't know where the vac when for it but since I was cutting the spoilboard anyway I might as well cut it so that we can hook the vac up to it at a later date.

Made a 1"x1" grid on the table and the ripped the board into 5" strips the length of the table. Took most of the day for the program to finish and broke a bit because there was a broken drill bit in the spoilboard that I ran into.

Probably run out tomorrow and see if I can install the T-Slot and fasten the spoilboard back down to the table.

Holy crap. I'd give my left nut for one of those.

I am so tired of spending hours building templates to make a part in two minutes. Definitely post pics.

Did a little more work on the router today. Didn't have the right size countersink bit for the T-Slot track so I couldn't get it fastened down to the table today guess I'll have something to do next weekend aye.

Fired up the UDS when I was out there and grilled up some home made brats yummm well the girl did the grillin while I did the workin, I get a kick out of it because the grill is as big as her haha.

Yeah it's a Lancair ES Super ES with the engine were putting on it, Performance Engines TSIO550. Haven't had time to work on it in the past till lately, it's been sitting for about 3 years in the same corner as the router haha.. Were hoping to have some hours on the airframe by the end of the year.
