Nice! The next step is to make a edge lit sign out of it.
Use a multi-color LED for fall colors all year long!

Finally got around to cutting out my control box cover. Trying inlay for the first time using ArtCam (couldnt let RadRacer show me up :D) Couple chipping issues but all I used was plywood.

Dave,
Are you doing your inlays with a straight bit or V bit? Was wondering which method was easier.

Drad98_98 Wed 08 December 2010 18:18

Just a straight bit, heard about using a v-bit but this was my first try at it.

Greg J Fri 10 December 2010 07:43

Dave,

Your gonna be blown away with what you can do with the inlays.

The 60 degree V-bit will give all the detail needed.

Have fun. :)

Wow, over a year since my last post. Time flies when you are MMing. Been making a few signs here and there, mostly nightlights which you can see here www.craftworksmn.com started a web site showing off what the MM and my other tools can do. Check it out and let me know what you think. I still enjoy coming on here and watching the new builds coming thru also some of the incredible work done by the other members here. Have a great 2012 everyone.

Hey Dave,
Can I get a whole bunch of those FREE cnc carved signs? :) I also need a lot of the FREE laser engraved signs too.

I do like your pens. :)

Drad98_98 Tue 21 February 2012 11:48

Just put your order in Heath, signs might be free but im pretty sure the shipping will kill you lol, my silly web site designer program wont let me put anything in there but a number, wanted to put Call for pricing!

Got this idea from one of the threads on here, turned out really cool. I did cut this on the laser but could be cut on the mechmate, I did convert this to a corel draw file and can dxf it out if anyone wants it. I got the pdf from the designer on instructables.

That is very cool Dave.

hennie Sun 26 February 2012 07:41

NICE, I see the underside of the MM is a storage place also, for some it is a place to have a lot of dust:)

Kobus_Joubert Sun 26 February 2012 07:55

hennie Sun 26 February 2012 09:29

Cutting this on a vacuum hold-down is a challenge for me... Parts do move about if you are not careful. Use climb cut to reduce cutting thrust on the parts.

Russell
That is where I got the idea, everytime I tried to load his files they were corrupt so I redrew them. Sorry for the delay, I have been sick the past few days, just getting back out in the shop. I will get the files out guys, thanks for your patience.
