You have been a busy guy. They turned out well. It will be nice to see the rails, when you complete them.

How long per spindle?

neal_meyers_jr 03-14-2013 10:35 PM

90 minutes per roughing. 30 min finishing each one.

What is the length and max diameter of the spindles? What wood did you use?
90 + 30 = 120 minutes per spindle x 130 = 1560 minutes = 26 hours WOW [clap]

Your right Nick ..... I ran out of fingers and toes [lol]

2 hours each? That's dedication! You need a lathe duplicator. Could make them in less than 10 minutes each with an old fashioned duplicator!!

You could also change your stepper motor for a normal lathe motor, and mount a gouge and a parting tool to the aluminum plate where the spindle is mounted. Then use the Y and Z axis to carve out the shape from above with the gouge and parting tool while the lathe spins (just offset the gouge and parting tool so both can be mounted and used by just changing the x position).

Or mount a mini lathe onto the cobra bed and do the same thing with a gouge and parting tool. Just some thoughts to speed things up!

I'd like to discuss your feedrates with you. I believe we can cut that WAY down. I could be wrong, but email me your tap file if you will. I'd like to have a look. Also include your wincnc.ini file and your Aspire post processor if you don't mind. It'll probably be tomorrow before I get a chance to look at it, but I will look at it for you.
