I have seen a rockcliff diy machine engrave aluminum, for frame blocks
Can the rockcliff machine be used to make aluminium parts (foot rests for motorcycles Ect) ? if not what is the best home build machine for the job
i suppose if i use a slow feed rate and the right tooling it mite just do it.
has anyone else any experience machining aluminum on a rockcliff
well i am pretty sure it will come down to the spindle speed and ridgidity of the machine.
but i just stumbled apon a solution to using the more typical high speed laminate routers
the type that typically use brushed (universal) motors. (universal being that it can be powered with either AC or DC.)
meaning a DC post width modulation driver can be used to slow your spindle.
a high speed spindle can be cheap and affective for wood and now with pwm driver it'll do your ally too. and it comes with a 1/4" collet
