    Used this in my garage and it was great. I have some heavy machines on casters and getting over the expansion joints was annoying. It was much easier once I used this. It initially has the...

    Screen real estate. I bought a 1440p monitor (so 2560 x 1440 pixels = 3,608,640 pixels) for about $300 if I recall. Compare that to a full HD monitor (1920 x 1080 pixels = 2,073,600) and I have about...

    I think I found the type of lens NCEngraver was referencing in his (now private) video. Based on what I recall seeing, the Alibaba link below to a telecentric F-Theta lens looks quite similar to the...

    From my refinery work, I know that some grades of stainless steel exposed to high temperatures can rust (and some can even become slightly magnetic, hello 316 welds)-- though I learned that in the...

    Alright, more specifics-- I found out a few more details tonight and the problem is slightly different from what I described in the original post.

    That's unfortunate. I literally just watched that video last night and left a comment on there asking about his lens. Then he turned and made the video private in the last 24 hours. I agree with you,...

    I came across a few of his videos yesterday and his lens is sizable. Any guess as to what makes that lens different than the standard f-theta lens or why it is so large? I've done some sleuthing and...

    John and Kev,
    Thanks for the quick replies-- I'll look at to see if the contour option was checked and see if I can duplicate the problem tonight or this weekend. The line color was certainly...
  9. EZCAD2: Won't Outline Some Shapes with Preview/Red Laser

    So I was setting up to mark the slide on my 9mm pistol last night, but the design was a bit complex to line up how I wanted using the red preview laser. In EZCAD2, I went in and made a quick...

    I generally lean towards TV's without built in streaming devices/services. If 5 years from now Apple/Amazon/Roku/Google decide to stop supporting the device built into your TV, you're shucks out of...

    +1 on this. I hardly knew a stepper motor from an endmill when I bought my ShapeOko (okay, maybe I wasn't that bad), and their forum was a huge help for setting it up, tuning the machine, learning...

    Aluminum T-track has been a game changer for me-- I have two rails running parallel to each other across my spoilboard. I can use the track to secure clamps (without running more screws or drilling...

    That's the "masking tape and superglue" method referenced in the very first post by the OP.

    My first thought was one of the spring loaded door latches (link below) either on the edge or underside of the lazy Susan.

    Google Voice has been around for a decade-- I used it when I lived overseas so I could have a "local" number for my folks to call. I now use it for my landline phone (you can buy a $35 box and it has...

    I won't profess to be a computer expert, but I would be surprised if you can boot from a USB hard drive. I'd imagine that the BIOS is looking for a hard drive connected to the motherboard during...

    I'd totally agree with that. I purchased the ShapeOko2 a while back when they first offered it as I was clueless about CNC's but thought what they were capable of looked awesome. Once I got the hang...

    Agreed. Maybe they bought an electric fence charger that runs off of 12V and used the car charger to power that? Even then, you'll probably scare a rat before you kill it. I have a smaller fence...

    I'll second Jim. If your budget allows, I'd go for a monitor with a 2560x1440 resolution and 25"+. Do check first though to see if your Macbook can support that resolution on an external display. I...

    I forget if you can change the duration of the 5v output. If so, there are some simple 5v beepers out there that take next to nothing for current that you could likely wire up directly.

    Else, you...

    If you do a bit of searching, there have been a few "musical roads", some for safety, at least one for a commercial for Honda Civics. General consensus of the locals is that they are annoying and...

    I found one download link that led to a "this file has been recently deleted" and found one vendor selling the software on the usual shady sites. I put in a request for pricing on it, we'll see what...

    Keep in mind a 1/8" radius is a 1/4" diameter. You can get some decent 1/4" endmills that have that long of a length of cut (LOC). Still slower than 1/2", but not as fragile or slow as 1/8" endmills.

    For my 1/4" and smaller carbide endmills I source them from drillman1 on eBay. For my 3/8" and 1/2", I don't have one particular source. For most common endmills, choose the size that suits your...
