Thread: MDF and alu sandwich router
Mainly for my benefit - a few EMC2 file backups (v2.3.4).
If they're not useful to you they will be to me if my PC every fries itself!!! (Thanks for the diskspace Lee! )
If anyone uses these just be careful - I'm learning so there could be some mistakes in here I haven't found yet...
Custom HAL File - startup of classicladder for touchprobe. Startup of chargepump.
Custom PostGUI HAL File - connects AXIS PyVCP buttons (jog, touchprobe, and various easy homing and co-ord change buttons)
Main HAL File - not sure if there any changes here - maybe the charge pump one.
Custompanel.xml - pyVCP button layout (as PostGUI HAL file)
Classicladder File - sorts out the logic and debouncing of the touchprobe (allows single button touchoff)
Main INI File - Base & Servo periods, scales for axes (X needs tweaking), homing, limits. MDI commands for touchoff and other PyVCP buttons.
I finally got around to replacing the dodgy original MDF router mount with a shiny "John S" type. An evening with an alu block and a mini-lathe is all it took.
It has (obviously) massively improved the quality of cutting, and I can just just just cut aluminium now. Though 0.3mm depth of cut doesn't really count as cutting. Closer to vigorous polishing, but it's progress. Well chuffed.
Off to post a separate Q about dust extraction now....
