I got MACH3 set up yesterday, and finally move on to making chips today. I am just playing in a chunk of oak I had fabbed up a few months ago for my router. Good thing, too, as I did crash it once, but nothing hurt since it was such a soft material. Mistakes are gonna cost me, aren't they!!!

Videos are uploading now, I will reply to this message with some links when they are done...

I made a total of 5 videos today, all roughing passes on my part. They are located here:

First Cuts album | mcphill | Fotki.com, photo and video sharing made easy. (http://public.fotki.com/mcphill/mcpi-inc/mikini-1610l/first-cuts/)

I'll get to the finish passes tomorrow or over the weekend and update the thread.

It cuts nice!

I'm sure you are not getting much vibration at all, but it can ruin the hdd for the computer.

Nice machine, I wanna see it cut Aluminum :)

No HDD, its an SSD.

I will be moving on to aluminum, steel, stainless, hardened. Give it time.
