    In episode 12, I used the MAHO MH400E I converted to LinuxCNC, to make tapered gibs for the saddle.

    Now that the errors in the geometry of the main components has been addressed, I can move on to the CNC relevant stuff...

    looking good Mark!

    on a side note, I remember you had a cool wankle engine you were building a long time ago. What happened with that project?

    Oh wow, I remember that being one of the motivations to get into CNCing, but by the time I had the machines I moved on to other interests, and have never gotten back to the Wankel engine. Maybe one day.

    I just uploaded episode 29...

    E30 is up. The first time I used tool offsets, including a crash due to my lack of understanding.


    Enjoy,
