    Yeah, those old industrial planers were made to run all day long to support a factory. And all the parts would be renewable or replaceable. And you're right, so many more manufacturers of just...

    I kinda like good food and/or sex with music.

    I don't play the music loud enuf to drown out the machines, quite the opposite. I actually spend very little time with the machines running, you may...

    I can pretty much do that with the pair of 15" Altec Lansing coaxial speakers I have now, but I'm in a big repurposed industrial building with retail downstairs and offices upstairs, have to behave...
  7. OT- switching between speaker pairs in shop?

    There was a thread a while ago about playing music in the shop. Rather than fill my 3000' one person shop with sound as in the past, I'd like to have 3 different zones of sound for the areas I spend...

    Very sorry to hear this, I didn't know Chris was ill. I hope someone can give this a good home, from what I've seen Chris had some of the best equipment in the world.

    +1 for the dog. I think the hour I spend walking her is the best part of my day. Leave the phone in your pocket and just pay attention and observe. Any time of year, any kind of weather, there's...

    Carbide endmill deflection?

    Got into a discussion on a woodworking cnc forum about cutter deflection. Machine in question was clearly lacking in rigidity, but some were convinced that the cutters themselves flexed also. Hard...

    +2 for pressing a steel bearing ball thru. I did this once long ago, heated the ball in oil by 10 degree increments until the shaft just slid in. Very satisfying!

    The 36v is for the stepper motors, certainly wouldn't want to disrupt them. My power supply has a 5v output also, which was capped off, I was wondering whether I could use that for the relays?

    Thank you. I've read that the Gecko doesn't require snubbers across the coils, I think it's handled by the device itself, but I'll check for sure.

    My cnc controller is Mach3 software on a Windows computer, out-putting to a Gecko G540 4-axis stepper drive, which has 2 auxiliary outputs to control relays. I can use either voltage from the power...
  17. Newbie question about relay coil voltage

    I have a small cnc router and I want to use relays to turn on the spindle and dust collector, both 120v motors. The power supply in my router has both 36v and 5v dc outputs. I'm wondering if there's...

    If the blades are oriented perpendicular to table travel, is it ok to grind a bunch of them at once?

    Wondering if any heat is retained in the wheel or if it all goes into the workpiece and swarf?

    Cutting at 24K works fine, but I'd like to speed up the process. I should be able to feed twice as fast at 50K and maintain the same chipload. Too high chipload and the bits break.
