    Do you have to strap yourself in when you have a kip on the couch?

    cheers, Ian

    It's a state of mind!

    LOL. Yes I do.
    No really it just hasn't been an issue to get it out until recently when I decided I wanted a mill. But also kicking around the idea of a lathe/mill combo.

    I looked at combo's early on, but from what I could see, the majority that were cost effective were a compromise on both, but not really that much cheaper than the individual machines. Although we don't really have much range in OZ to compare with the States.

    The other thing I did note was that most of the lathe/mill combo's I saw were more useful as a lathe than a mill.

    nice shops gentleman. Got a quick question. Is it redundant to have a CNC router and a CNC mill?

    No, each has its place in the machining world. Product that usually flows over a mill won't flow over a router etc. Not to say you "couldn't" but they each have there benefits and drawbacks.

    thanks. The only reason I bought a router (didn't know about mills at the time either) is size of pieces I can cut.

    Much depends upon the material you are going to be working. One diff. is routers usually have much higher spindle speed, and mills have much more "Z" travel, as well as rigidity. For home shop, some day, I want to develop approx 4' x 8' XYZ table with automatic HEAD changer, (as well as auto tool changer for mill head) with router, mill, waterjet, plasma, laser, AND extruder heads. (Extruder head to make biggest 3D printer you've ever seen.) Oh yeah, and add in a 4th & 5th axis. That could sell for around $10K. And make it here in U.S. Then I woke up.

    Might as well coming with a lucrative job contract!

    I want to know how you guys manage to have such clean floors.
    Granted, my workshop is in an old barn built maybe 100 years ago. Yeah, it does have a concrete floor.

    Cheers
    Roger

    Broom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    "A broom is a cleaning tool consisting of usually stiff fibers (often made of materials such as plastic, hair, or corn husks) attached to, and roughly parallel to, acylindrical handle, the broomstick. It is thus a variety of brush with a long handle. It is commonly used in combination with a dustpan."

    I have three brooms, and a big shovel. Plus the ace in the hole: a large shop-vac.
    The problem is that when I am machining, stuff tends to spread. And there are old tired dusty corners too.
    No matter.

    Cheers

    Roger, I'm just yankin your chain a little. I know exactly what you mean. It seams like all I do is clean and straighten up. I am surprised I get anything else done. However, there are three things that go towards keeping a cleaner shop. 1. It helps if you are a little obsessive compulsive. 2. Have a place for everything. 3. Don't stack things. As for the floor, it has been my experience that a painted or sealed floor is magic when it comes to dust and keeping it nice.

    Chuckle. I know. No worries.
    Mind you, it sometimes seems I spend as much time organising the shop as I do actually making things. Gives me a new respect for production engineering.

    I had considered doing something about the floor, but ... it's fly-ash concrete about 100 years old, and the barn is unsawn native timber and gal iron. Part of an old farm you see. Eh - it's a hobby.

    Cheers
    Roger

    Other room has entry door, and is more or less my home away from home Fridge, arcades, infrared heat, even added a couch since this pic

    Rest is more or less open to accumulate clutter

    Here's mine. New toy in the foreground (Bodor BCL-1390X Laser) and my Tormach 770 in the background. I also have a Southbend Magnaturn 612 cnc lathe (Beast of a machine for it's size). Tons of woodworking and woodturning equipment too.

    Here is mine, just got my 2001 VF3 in a few weeks ago and wired into the phase converter. Still finishing up the insulation, heat etc.. Hope to be making chips soon. Just need programming software.. Been a long time getting to this point but I'm finally getting close.

    Very nice...I'm close to finishing my building. There coming to do the siding this weekend and finish the outside. Then insulation and electrical next week.

    I need a phase converter. How do you like yours? Any issues with the install? I see you have 2 breaker boxes. Is that one for power to converter and then one for power to machine?

    Happy milling Pictures of your HOME Shops
