    If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem !

    That's an expensive bench for a drill press.!! . . . . Should be covered in dust by now . . .Lol

    LOL!

    I agree....so it bloodywell is !



    First "Production" cut... a little too much spacing around the items, but that's been re-arranged. The drill press (Only used for simple stuff) is now on its own bench alongside the cutting bench...Early days but I *WIL* make this venture work...

    Did a cut last evening of sea animal shapes. Added 2 extra toggle clamps. Now have one for each corner so the board stays flatter with downcut end mills, was halfway through the profiles with my wife Kay gently chasing the cutter with a Henry vac so she could see the shapes being cut (I still not got confidence to leave it alone to its own devices) and the clamp I fitted last was in the line of fire !.

    Lovely screeching noise... she panicked... I was on the loo about 30 yards away and *Still* I made it to the machine as it stopped.

    Feed fuse at the "Kettle" plug socket had blown (Thankfully) so up and running again after moving the errant clamp.

    Note to self.... Double check clamp locations to cut areas and teach operator to stop machine....

    At least one OH SHITE button is the first thing that should go on any machine. Buy 4 one for each side cos you can bet your last shilling when OH SHITE comes your at wrong side and it's all done and dusted by the time you vault to the OH SHITE button.!! . . . . . . . Then it's F@~k- - - B@~?!rd - - -- F@~k- - - B@~?!rd. .

  6. That's a really sound idea. I've just started fitting out my workshop but after seeing some of the gear I think I might be a little embarrassed now (you can only fit so much into a garage space)...

    You can fit lots into a garage space - just forget things like cars, freezers washing machines etc. G.

    JAZZCNC I've been thinking of having a run of surrounds made to go with the E-Sops I sell what do you think would other cnc users buy them ?

    I like the idea of the surrounds but maybe make it bigger so there's space for a more appropriate message like
    'Too late now but STOP anyway'

    I like that idea..... The unit next to mine is a sign writer working in vinyl.... I might get him to knock one up for mine so "Her Indoors" can clump it while she's watching the machine work if anything goes wrong LOL!

    I did have another spindle/clamp interface the other day, but as it only just kissed the clamp I let it run on........complete with lovely sparks and everyfink !!!
    The spindle gained a little play for a while in the bottom bearing, then magically seated itself back to whence it came and all's well...
