Oh wow I will get another er20 collet then. It shows signs of damage.

I'd like to buy another er20 from the same supplier as what came with the stinger. Where can I get that?

I just encountered an issue where my HSD spindle dropped a 1/4" endmill even though I am using an er20 collet. This happened after about 2-3 hours of use, so I assume there is some period where I...

I did all that this morning and it plowed into the added spoil-board 1/2" instead of the .01" it should have but I hit esc before it went any further. This is confusing since setting the zero...

I did this previously and the model looks better, but its just not smooth enough for an efficient workflow. I've been giving fusion 360 a try, so we'll see how that goes.

Vertical cuts on 3d model

I made a guitar model in solidworks then imported the stl into vectric v-carve. As a more seasoned vectric user may realize, the model was imported with very rough vertical edges, ie the edge faces...

Anyone making guitars on the sr24?

If so, how is that going? I'd like to do complete neck throughs of instruments ~41". I've read that 5" of z travel may not be enough.

Has anyone had any complications from attempting luthiery?
