My CNC gantry router is finally ready to start making stuff! I’m sure I’ll still do a lot of tweaking as I go along, but tomorrow I’ll actually be able to start making things.
First order of business will be to go back to Atlantic Carbide to talk to their Onsrud rep, who apparently is only there between 6 am and 2 pm. I need to find out what the best bit for cutting masonite hardboard, which I plan to use in my first project: a business card dispenser. I’ve already done the CAD modeling and part layout; now all I need to do is to write the g-code. I should have a prototype to show off tomorrow!
