I am going to buy an extruder for my mpcnc from this site. I was hoping to make some quick attach mounts to make swapping heads easier. I might add a laser in the future. Any recommendations on this. I am using a dewalt router.June 13, 2017 at 7:39 am #35802
Swapping tools with my mounts only takes a few screws, if you glue the nuts in the mount it only takes a minute or two to swap. I feel these mounts are the most rigid. There are some others out there but how much time do you really need to save and sacrifice rigidity?June 13, 2017 at 3:35 pm #35843
Makes sense. What kind of glue do you use?June 13, 2017 at 4:30 pm #35852
Hot glue or super glue, you just don’t want to be able to push them out.June 13, 2017 at 10:40 pm #35908
I like the Hicwic system:
Just slides in and out, with option to bolt it down with 4 screws. I could also make a bench mount (there may even be a design on thingiverse already) compatible with it to fix the tool sideways, and not necessarily on the MPCNC.
Yeah it seems a bit loose with a homebrew Dremel mount in there, haven’t tried something as heavy as Makita or bolt the thing down. Probably still have to print a 525 universal mount. Adding a 525->Hicwic adapter would make the tool stick out too much.
