Default Made my first cuts yesterday

Hello,

I got my Stinger 1 fired up yesterday and made a couple of cuts. I bolted down a piece of scrap MDF and cut our company logo with a 60 V bit just to see how it would turn out. It came out great!

I was hesitant to cut any metal, but I got a request to make a prototype bracket for a prox sensor that has a radial slot. I cut it out of .06 5052 aluminum. It came good as well but took me a couple of tries because I dont have a good flat surface. I

Hi James,

I was pretty happy to get some cuts in both metal and MDF on Wednesday without breaking anything. I need to get some MDF and make a real spoil board so I can skim cut it flat. Is there already a toolpath available for the Stinger or should I just set one up myself?

Our electrical engineer and my boss were very impressed with the capabilities of the Stinger when I showed them the flat pattern of the aluminum bracket.

Find Mick Martins post on surfacing the spoil board. Great little exe application. Or, just create a pocket cut file....

Default Spilboard leveling

Mick Martin has a program that will level the spoil board. It works GREAT! I believe you can get it at his web site. It is free. Just google his name.
