    Hi James,

    I have been away from the zone for a long time now. I have completed building my shop first and I started on the house this summer. I got the shell completely up in three months by taking two weeks of vacation from work to frame the lower floor and then did the rest by taking every Friday off. With the help of some family & friends on weekends, this is where I was at the end of October 2006 see picture. You can see the edge of my shop to the far right of the picture.

    As for the Porter Cable fixed collets that I designed. I did post the drawings here in another thread. I have searched for it but it seems that It no longer exists on this server anymore. I have attached them to this post as well.

    Jeff

    What made U choose servo's...arent they much more expensive than steppers? $??
    Costs aside, What is the main determinant in choosing?
    How did U determine the appropriate servo motor horsepower/wattage ouput?
    Thanks, Qtron...

    No updates with my CNC router, but I have a picture of my house and shop I'm still building.

    Default Turning Round Extrusions

    HI THERE!!!
    This is the information I have been looking for, could you please send me information about this matter. I have a 5-axis machine and I want to take advantage of the A-axis for turning round extrusions. I have the post processor needed for my machine which runs with Mach 2 software.
    I really appreciate any help you can give me to turn round a relief.

    Thank You very much
    Eduardo.
