I am probably asking a bit much of any hobby level machine to do full width dados ! The reality is I could still do some non-full width (hidden) dado joints with some allowance for Z axis variation – probably not as strong, but would be good enough for my applications and look tidy.
As you say, there are lots of through joints that work really…[Read more]
Got excited, saw new activity on my thread – but no, just spam 🙂
Another question – given I create a very flat 4’x3′ table, will the Z axis accuracy be as good as MPCNC ?
While most of my work would be cut through, I would still like to be able to create joints in 18mm plywood eg dado/rabbet. Is that going to work ?
OK thanks, I will let you know in the next few days if I will go ahead with this.
We cant get that De Walt router here in New Zealand, but can get the Makita RT0700C which I believe should be a suitable alternative ?
I really do like the low rider concept. What is the shipping weight of the Low Rider bundle ? If I get it shipped to Kansas, I need to make sure it is not to heavy for my niece to bring back in luggage.
Are you saying that you could provide the printed parts in the short term ? If I go down this route, I would really want to get as…[Read more]
Yes I did wonder about starting with the MPCNC since it is more mature and all the parts are available. I was not sure whether the 4′ dimension would be an issue – I assume I could just use tube with a thicker wall section to keep the rigidity. The reality is that 4’x2′ would keep me happy for a reasonable while.
I will have a look through the…[Read more]
I want to enter the world of CNC so I can cut furniture and a few other ideas out of 3/4′ plywood (mainly home use). I could stretch (just) to purchase a ready to go 4’x2′ router, which would get me going faster, but the builder in me is intrigued by the lowrider. This would be my first CNC build but I am reasonably adept with woodworking and am…[Read more]
