    Default Two more of Joe's CNC Model 2006

    A little late but I built a Router Table from Joe's eDrawings back in march. It turned out so well that my son wanted one also so I built another one of them. We are having so much fun with them that I mised the summer season all together, or was there no summer this year? Been working on utililty drawers for it and a rack of 14 tools with automatic tool changer. This is working out real good.

    I wan't to thank Joe for his time and generosity of his design.

    Here are some photos of the build. I will post more photos (the drawers and changer etc) later.

    Verrrrry nicely done! Love those sliding drawers. I can't wait for the toolchanger pics. Any plans or other information to go along with the toolchanger?

    Great build, thank you for sharing.

    Great machine!

    I'm very interested in your toolchanger, looks like it mounts on the router? Is that correct?

    You could zip your video up, & just post here as a zipped file.

    Nice work!

    Video short clip:

    The Quick change tool holder was patterned after
    http://www.hightechsystemsllc.com/in...s/Page1446.htm
    I have one of these for my Mini Mill but they didn't have one for a 1/2" so I just made one out of AL with a 1/2" shaft to fit the router.

    They only had 5 sizes of tool holders so I had to make them also.

    The tool rack was made with the router out of corian.

    I run Turbocnc and use Sheetcam. It was easy to modify the post for sheetcam to accommodate the changer.

    Everyone's been waiting for years for an inexpensive ATC, and you're already using one. Nice. Very Nice.

    JLT - Very nice setup you have there. So here is the big question (at least for me) Interested in selling a tool changer setup?

    JLT,

    I really like that ATC.

    I was looking at the site you posted http://www.hightechsystemsllc.com/index.htm , I understand how the tool (endmill, etc...) keeps from slipping in the holders, with a small set screw.

    How does the holder keep from slipping (rotating), in the actual toolchanger? The toolchanger does not look like it would provide enough clamping preasure to keep the tool holder from slipping, I don't see any type of flat on the toolholder to give a positive stop. I may be wrong, I'm just really interested in that product (toolchanger).

    It looks like you have a great setup going on in that video!

    Any chance of a longer video, with some cutting and maybe a couple of toolchanges?

    Also did you see the "Drill Chuck Holder" they have? http://www.hightechsystemsllc.com/in...es/Page513.htm

    Thanks for sharing your cool project.

    Wow I'm blown away. Your router looks cool and colossal in some of the pics. The automatic tool changer & video is extremely impressive. Joe should be thrilled when he sees it. One question, I'm assuming when you change tools in production, for two different kinds of cuts you would include that in the gcode. Assuming that it's running, makes it's passes, pulls back to the tool dock and shuts off before or during. But how does your router know when the spindle on your hitachi has fully stopped before it can release that bit and grab a new one or do you just set a certain amount of time? Thanks!

    That toolchanger looks cool.
    Can't help wondering how the red part and spring handles 30,000 rpm and the fact that the tool is extended a long way from the collet.

    Have you accidently run the gantry into a drawer yet

    Could we get more info on your tool changer setup. Like you I have the quick tool changer on my Sherline mill and like it a lot.

    Any chance of sharing the plans/ g-code for you tool holder as I would love to have a go at making one too.

    Thanks

    David

    This must be just what many of us have been searching for, a simple, low cost, effective autochanger without spending megabucks.

    I second the motion for more info on the tool changer. What about starting a new thread so we don't highjack JLT's build?

    Mike
