    I was really getting tired of holding the vacumm hose all the time, so I threw together something a few weeks ago. I managed to burn out a stepper driver last time, but discovered that was due to over-tightening one of the adjustment bolts. Last night I put this system back together and ran some test cuts. It’s working quite well now.

    Ignore the chatter during the cut. This was a test design I was using to try different DOC and feed rates… pretty much a worst-case test to see how things held up.

    Will you share your 3D files?

    Nope. In the process of patenting it.

    If you look closely, You’ll see the duct tape on the back of the container where I started with the hole on the side. Redneck engineering at its finest.

    Dang, did you have to build an injection molding machine to get the bottle the right size?

    No, but I did have to steal it from my daughter’s “art supplies”.

    I promised her she could have another one once we empty the next bottle.
