    Yep, that's the one! I got my replacement from ITSCNC and it's been working perfectly!

    Hey Bryan!
    1) I think most SLA resins that are easily available are aimed at modelling and decorative parts and seem to be quite brittle and notch sensitive. However I am much more familiar with the...

    A little bit more quick experimentation with the two Siraya resins, 'Blu' and 'Tenacious'.

    I poured a little bit of each into the bottom of some plastic cups, and then cured it using the cup as a...

    Ok, so I finally have something to report regarding the new resin - Siraya Tech "BLU" resin.

    Printed the first parts with it last night. I messed up the support settings so the parts came out...

    Hey mate!
    I model everything in Fusion and export as STLs currently. For slicing I use PrusaSlicer for FDM and Lychee for resin prints.

    The sheath model is shaped the way it is largely for...

    @LOTT:

    I have a lot of pride in being able to call myself an 'ok' machinist, but I think it would take a lot of time for me to get to the point where making an injection mold would be a quick and...

    Is this a DC servo machine? If so then I believe rotating the resolver relative to the servo will move the cold start position up to 1 thread pitch of the screw, not sure if that will be enough to...

    Happy day! Count me as jealous!

    If it goes missing tomorrow you'll have to come to Canada to get it back! :D
  10. Yeah agreed, the finishing can be a lot of work!...

    Yeah agreed, the finishing can be a lot of work!

    I do think that extra time spent in the prep process (or even the design process) can help to minimize it though...

    For the sheaths that I was...

    I was able to break the test part last night... I have basically been using it as a stress ball whenever I'm at home watching TV or whatever. A couple of days of that treatment and it suddenly...

    This is likely a dumb idea, but could the 'ideal' replacement spiral bevel gears be investment cast using a resin 3D printer to make the master?

    They have lots of 'zero ash' resins that are...

    I guess I should say $0.86 each in material costs? Is that what you mean? To get a total cost you'd have to include a percentage of my fixed costs, as the printer occupies space (about 1/2 square ft...

    I have been trying to find a solution for low volume production of printed parts for a while... I have a part that is very simple: a belt loop adapter to hold my knife sheaths sideways. Having these...

    Hey Jeff!
    Yes I replaced all the wipers on all 3 of the Fadals I've worked on. They were all pretty worn. I bought my wipers from ITS, the ones I used are here: Buy Fadal Way Cover Wiper Teleflex...

    Well I can say that the initial lathe that 'D KIRBY' mentioned is no longer available, happy to say that's because it is now sitting in my shop!

  18. Video: diagnosing and repairing backlash on my Fadal

    Hey All!
    I know many of you will already know/have used the procedure shown in this video, but I know there are many newer people who will not know how to work out where backlash is coming from on a...

    Very very cool! Would a simple cartesian system be easier to program/more economical than the UR robot?

    Lots of fairly low cost CNC router table kits out there that seem like they'd be a great fit...

    For the most part I'll be doing work to +-0.001" tolerances or around that. The tightest tolerances I'll have to hit will be bearing fits... Not saying it wouldn't be nice to have a Monarch though!

    Thanks for the offer mate! As stated by DalmationGirl it's a long drive from here to texas! And I don't even have a car, so I think that's out of the question, sorry mate!

    Yeah that Smart and Brown looks beautiful! A bit too pricey for me at the moment though unfortunately... If I had the money just sitting around I would definitely jump on that!
  24. PM sent Dave!

    Yeah I've messaged that guy a couple of times and no response... The ad is still up though so who knows what's going on there!

    Just over a week ago I missed out on a Colchester Student in decent...
