First CNC Engraving
My g-code problems are fixed and below is a photo of the first piece made with my newly completed CNC milling machine! Was supposed to say “Mason’s Room” (my son). but I misjudged the length and size.
Overall, I am very pleased with the machine’s performance. I want to do a couple more fine adjustments to improve the accuracy a tiny bit though. I can’t say enough about John Kleinbauer’s machine design, it is a really impressive piece of work.
I needed to run the machine fairly slowly at this point (<7inches per minute [ipm]) for good results in oak, but I’m in no hurry. I’m told it has to do with the quality and strength of the used stepper motors that I am using. Someday, I’ll upgrade them, but for now, slow is fine.
