I’ll try and get it out by 5.April 17, 2017 at 6:11 pm #31647
Coming right along…
But my stash of orange is running out. I may have to go with a bright green I have to finish up.

I do have some green wheels coming in, not sure of the color though…Might have to do a swap to keep things lookin good.April 19, 2017 at 11:20 am #31788
so… how does the vacuum hose hook into this… I think It should be obvious, but I’m missing it..April 19, 2017 at 11:32 am #31789
If your vac hose does not fit on one of the 2 barbs you will need a reducer or if it is close you can split the hose. I have a reducer on mine I believe and use it as a coupler.April 19, 2017 at 11:54 am #31795
doh! knew it was easy, I completely overlooked the dust shoe in the spindle part list.April 19, 2017 at 7:12 pm #31835

So close.April 19, 2017 at 7:18 pm #31841
You may want to document the LCD pinout for the Rambo board. It wasn’t immediately obvious to me.. my first thought turned out to be right.. but may be worth a picture or two.April 19, 2017 at 7:22 pm #31842
Okay. I screwed up the inventory and ended up selling my rambo. No pictures until Monday.April 19, 2017 at 8:11 pm #31844
🙂 I have one of your Rambos..April 20, 2017 at 3:52 am #31847
What do you need pictures of?April 20, 2017 at 7:34 am #31852
The Mini-Rambo all wired up for clarification.April 20, 2017 at 7:35 pm #31890
Tomorrow is wiring and power. Saturday is cutting things.
I’m trying to make so my table is portable and I can move the whole unit somewhere else with only replacing a couple zip ties… it will be half sheet sized for now until I convince myself I need it to be full sheet…April 20, 2017 at 7:37 pm #31891
My wife asked “how many more Cnc’ are we going to have in the house?
I replied, “they are in the garage, not the house.”
However, a 3d printer, laser, mpcnc, and low rider should cover all my needs…April 22, 2017 at 12:49 pm #31970

High five!April 22, 2017 at 2:16 pm #31976
Is the lowrider outfeed for your table saw, or is your table saw the outfeed for your lowrider?April 22, 2017 at 4:44 pm #31977
Whichever device needs a runout now has one… 🙂
Looks like it’s binding up a bit along the X axis… I’ll have to figure that out tomorrow… any thoughts on where I should look..April 22, 2017 at 5:00 pm #31979
dang you and your low-riders.. my wife will divorce me if I kick her car out of the garage….
NeilApril 22, 2017 at 6:32 pm #31984
Which one are you calling your X axis?
Doesn’t really matter. Just make sure your wheels spin freely, and the idlers do as well, if those can move easily the only other thing could be belt tension, you can pull too tight and stall a stepper.April 22, 2017 at 6:39 pm #31986
X is to the right along the 2×4 rails…
I’ll check the idlers and such, though it does work perfectly for all but maybe 20mm of the distance.
Maybe binding up isn’t quite the right description. I think the belt skips. But it’s only in that one place and the belt teeth look fine.
(I posted the other thread just to be able to drop in the ideas and solution once figured out. I figured that would help future folks if they have a similar issue)..April 23, 2017 at 3:50 pm #32045April 23, 2017 at 4:05 pm #32046
John – what software is running on the laptop to control the Lowrider?April 23, 2017 at 4:44 pm #32050
Lots of pictures…
I run repetier server pro on a raspberry pi that is hooked into the Rambo board…April 23, 2017 at 4:49 pm #32051
This was cut on the lowrider..l

Ear to ear smiles right here!!!!!
How did it go? Do you think you could push it faster?
I really need to get out there and use mine some more. I am designing a part right now I hope I can go cut it soon just to get some more cut time under my belt. Maybe do some torture testing, sometimes I think I baby my machines…April 23, 2017 at 4:59 pm #32059
I like that notch out of the 2×4 pic. That’s what I call, “a good hack”.April 23, 2017 at 5:15 pm #32060
I did 30mm/s and could probably double it with no problem.
