Thread: why you need a CNC machine.
So; as ive been busy for the past four months building a cnc machine.... Havent had much chance for much else...
All through the build friends and family have asked me... so what are you going to use it for? My answer has remained.. 'I dont know yet'
On arrival home from work, the misses once again asked me to do a job Ive said id get round to for the past few months...
1) put a 'latch' on a door my little lad keeps opening.
So I got my latch... and as with all DIY, It was never that simple.. it needed 'padding' out for the catch to work.
Normally at this point, Id get all f*cked off, go down the workshop and hack a bit of plastic or wood etc and it would look sh*te
but now... my friends :D Ive got C N C
you can imagine my excitement when I offered it up to find I actually needed TWO spacers
so, a justified expense I think boys ;D
Well done, how much do you think those two packers have cost you? It only gets better. G.
What you going to do with it? I think the door latch spacers have justified having it.
She's got you now.??. . . . Door spacers this week next week Full doors, 2 weeks later full kitchen. . 6 months after that sell the bastard because your getting divorced. .
Oh man, I can't wait to cut my own padding!Just... One more project...
Possibly the most expensive bit of padding ever seen on this forum - but completely justifiable :-)
I use my CNC machine to make things I could have made in 5 minutes previously but which now takes me 4 days to design/cut *but* look the dog's nuts (even though these things won't be seen) , ...we should open a shop 'Padding ...& things that look the nuts Ltd.' - we'd go bust, within a fortnight.
