If you have questions, someone might have the answer.February 20, 2017 at 10:33 am #28028
Very useful instruction. I will definitely watch the other videos he’s made. Is Some Old Guy Coding on these forums somewhere?
If you don’t have a naturally square machine (mine is pre 525, and maybe not printed by an expert *ahem*), then you could use two clamps for each direction, one on each side, to hold the roller against. You’d have to make sure they were at the same distance from the end on each side.
If you are using method 4 (which holds the steppers at a “safe place”, and doesn’t use the startup clamps) then you would need to make sure the zsafe was at 0.0, right? I would probably do 0,0,0, unless 0,0,0 was cut out already…February 20, 2017 at 10:37 am #28030
The safe place could be anywhere that has a know z distance. So the cutting surface is easy, but so is the table top or a block. If you use a block or the table then you can move away from your material to give yourself more room to get your hands in to change the tool.February 20, 2017 at 11:32 am #28034
Greetings all, I’ve in the forums, but since Vicious1 went and made me somewhat a celebrity <G>, I decided to get a vanity username – SomeOldGuyCoding.February 20, 2017 at 11:35 am #28035
perhaps it didn’t take. Oh well…February 20, 2017 at 11:48 am #28036
I changed it for you, You should be able to do it in your profile in the top right corner.February 20, 2017 at 11:56 am #28037
Thanks!February 21, 2017 at 11:29 am #28109
I learned quite a bit. I like how you listed and explained the pros and cons of the various methods and how you put the methods in order of least automatic to most automatic. So thanks!
I’ve been using an M17 instead of an M84. Right now I don’t even know the difference, but you certainly peaked my interest to study it.February 21, 2017 at 5:57 pm #28132February 21, 2017 at 6:22 pm #28133
Nice tool. Thank you for sharing!February 25, 2017 at 7:26 am #28400
From one old guy to another, great work! I really appreciate your efforts and your willingness to share what you have learned and all your tools and things.
I hope your celebrity status does not go to your head and you become too famous and good for the rest of us little people.February 25, 2017 at 9:09 am #28409
Oh I will see to that! With the kinds of video he puts out I am going to stop helping people directly and just start linking them to these videos.
