In CNC, a 4th Axis is commonly a rotary axis that is aligned to spin along an axis parallel to one of the machine's other 3 axes. On Vertical Mills, the 4th Axis is frequently parallel to X or Y, and is laid down. On a Horizontal Mill, the 4th Axis is also parallel to X Easy-to-attach module converts your CNC into a Laser Engraver capable of creating intricate drawings, lettering and photographic images! Requires a PC computer with USB 2.0 port (not included). Interface required for adapting the Laser Module on any Shark

Common CNC Machine Failures and Troubleshooting Tips

CNC machines need to be carefully cleaned and lubricated on a regular basis — otherwise, problems can begin to arise. A lack of cleaning could lead to a buildup of dirt and debris. This might seem to be purely a hygiene issue, but it can have real implications in the machine's output.

2010/6/29Good morning everybody, I am wondering if anyone does any jig grinding on a CNC mill? Occasionally I need to grind button holes after heat treat and all wire EDM work is completed. It seems to take me too long to grind the holes to size. My request is for any

2013/1/27I have a cnc knee mill and am looking to buy a vertical cnc machining center this summer. the SB milling attachment is mainly for nostalgic purposes to say my Heavy 10 is fully equipped. I once had a Sidney belt driven lathe with a QCGB back in the early 60's that I bought off my uncles estate.

Milling (machining)

Milling is the process of machining using rotary cutters to remove material[1] by advancing a cutter into a work piece. This may be done varying direction[2] on one or several axes, cutter head speed, and pressure.[3] Milling covers a wide variety of different operations and machines, on scales from small individual parts to large, heavy-duty

CNC for CNC: The left image shows the tool paths created in Rhino Cam to mill out the arm attachment for our cnc, the right image shows the mill in action. The arm attachment was milled out of 3/4″ plywood. The top left image shows the arm after the roughing

This is my first 3D print. It was inspired by a design by csatti's vacuum attachment. My spindle had a different diameter so I designed it from scratch based on his idea. I decided to use two bolts to clamp it as the diameter of the cooling fins of my spindle (below the main body) is slightly larger than the spindle body. I could not use simple friction to hold it in place. Now that I'm
