and the first real part:
hmmm... anyone notice the mistake?
i hand coded this thing and of course i had to screw it up. on the bright side, the machine can rip through 7/8" of maple at 50ipm without any lost steps.....
i took a video, but ill wait til tomorrow when i do it again sans coding error. these are guitar pickup rings in quartered hard maple if anyone is curious. they will be cut with a pull saw into 2 or 3 rings per stack. i can get about 5 stacks on this side of the block, and leave the other side for some fretboards.
cutting maple is also a little noisy. lots of vibration, but with the enclosure its still not much above normal speaking volume. i doubt the neighbours can hear much more than a quiet buzzing.
