    Evening All - Today I have been rebuilding Brevis where all this started. So Here's Brevis and we end up with Scoot-S2 a year plus later. Grew up a bit.... Peter

    Hi All - Finally can start doing stuff with Scoot in between the washroom build. I finished some art deco for the washroom. Nice bit of marquetry. Back to waterproofing... The finial is the highest part of the washroom, perhaps should have a topping out party!! Peter

    Hi All - Today I used Scoot to do some rebating for the washroom. Some time ago there was an entry about a titanium coffee cup with CF umbrella. Well that little spot is for long thin things just like framing so I don't have to set it up fore/aft and move the router away from the wall. I may also use a temporary apron so I can do edge work.... Looked at floor vinyl and bought the rest of the iron for the shower so getting close to a real shower... Peter

    They are normally called End mills or just cutters of the various types / shape, I'm not sure where the name Bit came from, regarding milling cutters, the first time I saw bit used, was the use of a Brace and Bit to hand drill a hole, and of course regular Drill Bits, anything that drill's a hole could be called a Bit I guess. Most milling cutters are not good at drilling holes, unless by design, the same goes for wood routers, not all can drill a hole very well. so if someone has not worked in a machine shop, everything to them is a Bit regardless of what it does.

    Hi Mactec - Agreed, I've never heard a metal machinist call a tool a bit. But carpenters and cabinet makers call them bits. My father was a carpenter in the days of hand tools and I have some of his tools. I was talking to him about his work a while ago and the agreement had 30mins a day allowed for sharpening tools.

    In the UK we have Slot Drills too ( usually a two flute centre cutting milling tool ). They work quite well as emergency router bits.

    Someone just called it a Slot Drill and it stuck, they are every where, just like the name Bits, get used for all types of cutters, which is incorrect, your Slot Drill really is a 2 Flute center cutting End Mill. so in reality it is a End mill in machining terms.

    Afternoon All you Mill Heads - Todays Brevis No1 job was to complete the motor wiring, check the wiring, power Brevis up and not let the smoke out. All went to plan, Good-oh. I then set up the Z's screw drive and X axis belt drive drive and next week will belt the Y axis. Then I'll have two routers in the fleet. Then I can get serious with Frankenrouter. Did a small job on Scoot this morning and its time to start planning its dust extraction system... Peter

    Yippee - Today I finished the outside of the washroom, except the door. Yesterday I cut the cleats for the shelving on Scoot and completed all the shelves being cut. Plus I started moving tools and stuff into the shelves. Now to compete the inside! Plus need to get the dust extraction going....Peter

    Evening all - Today I finished BrevisNo1 but forgot to take the computer so couldn't run it. Need to make a small aluminium bracket for the frame so this will be the first aluminium job for Scoot. Next is to make a new bench... making boxes to send parts to a customer as well... Peter
