Carlos,

Thanks for reading this thread. I am not certain that I understand your question. Something was lost in the translation.

Are you asking how to set up e-stops and limit switches?

Bill

Wow

This is the most informative Thread I have seen in a couple years of researching DIY CNC machines, only wish I had found it sooner. I also have the Hobby cnc pro kit with 305 oz motors. My router is 40" x 40" x 6" and currently have movement on x and y but still working on z. It does seem that the more I learn about this project the more I realize I have to learn.
Thanks Bill for all of your awesome work!

Your welcome. I enjoyed writing the post. I also have two blogs that deal with CNC Related stuff if you feel like even more reading. Recent posts include a V-Carving post and a smooth stepper post.

I just got a new Quadcopter and I thought you might enjoy some of the fun I was having out on my CNC router table with it.

Triple edge or Double edge finder

I looked at your ads for the edge finders, but can't figure out what the triple edge finder does that the double one can't. I did make a copy of your old plexiglass/copper tube version and it works like a charm! I'm using it on a Momus design CNC but am building a cast CNC from Henry's foundry.

Great question. The difference between the makers Guide Double Edge Finder
and the maker Guide Triple Edge finder is that the Triple Edge Finder will allow you to edge find using tapered bits. It will also edge find inside corners or anything with a lip on it. There are probably a few more things but those should do for now. The Double Edge Finder does every thing else listed below with the exception of what I just listed above.

For those of you not familiar with the Maker Guide Triple Edge Finder here is some information. The Triple Edge Finder is a combination touch off plate and edge finder. It allows you to accurately set up a workpiece on your CNC Router table faster than the manual method. You can set your Z height precisely.

If you have ever had something go wrong during a long cutting job, you will appreciate that with the Triple Edge Finder you can reset your workpiece even in the middle of a job.

If you need more info Just follow the link. http://www.themakersguide.com/edge
  • Accurately set Your Z axis Height every time.
  • Automatically locate the corner edge of a workpiece.
  • Repeatably reset your starting point in the middle of a program.
  • Locate any single the side of a work piece.
  • Quickly locate the inside and outside edge of a work piece.
  • Works with Tapered bit, V Bits, Spiral bit, straight bits up to 1" diameter.
  • Detailed Step by Step tutorials on How to set up and use The Makers Guide.
  • Works with Mach3 using free plugins.
  • Quality crafted right here in the U.S.A. on U.S. made C.N.C. Machines.

Wow Bill that is a very professional looking machine you have there! I have built a CNC a few years ago with the 4 axis pro board and it kicks some serious ass with what it can do for so cheap. I am thinking of building a new machine. How rigid is your linear motion system? I like the low cost of v bearings rather than my $300+ linear rails that STILL have slop! What does the bearings ride on? Is it like makerslide?

Thanks,
Max Kauker

Max,

The linear motion system is very rigid. The V bearings are a good proven system. The bearings ride on an angle iron. You can improve the consistency of parts by using hardened rails if you like but I don't find it necessary.

I have the CNC pro board. But I am finding the motors noisy maybe? unnecessary vibration?

What should be expect from this setup??? I have heard steppers should be smooth. I have a 3d printer and the motors certainly seem smoother and quieter.

Chopper drivers tend to be a little loud but it matters on the speed they are running at. All steppers have sweet spots where the sound is tolerable. With any luck your machine can run at those speeds.

Try air cutting a file with different feed rates and you will see what I mean. My machine is getting sloppy so I had to slow it down and now it is noisy as heck. What better motivation to tune it up a bit.
