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?May 26, 2017 at 6:10 am #34418
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.May 28, 2017 at 5:09 pm #34588
Dang, did you have to build an injection molding machine to get the bottle the right size?May 28, 2017 at 7:30 pm #34603

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.
