    Default help on the way with the cube

    Your cubes seems pleasant to make. I do not find the original estimate, how do I do this? I think of the circles size relative to depth.
    Is there a complete G-code to a size of about 75-50mm.
    would be fun to try the steel before I buy home acrylic.

    I'm lazy because I'm over fifty years old

    Wow, It's been a long time sense I've posted on this thread!
    So here is a little update!

    Many of my friends have been asking me to make more of the tiny Turner's Cubes, so I squared up a bunch of scrap plastic stock and dug up the old fixture! These cubes are .7500" x .7500" x .7500" Delrin.

    Holy cr4p!

    Super X3. 3600rpm. Sheridan 6"x24" Lathe + more. THREE ways to fix things: The RIGHT way, the OTHER way, and maybe YOUR way, which is possibly a FASTER WRONG WAY!

    That's OK. Daylight saving just finished so the clocks are fixed but the brain is still adjusting. I will make some cubes, one day, when I find some time.
