In this episode, we will be taking a look at the MYSWEETY Compound Slide Table/Worktable Milling Working Cross Table Milling Machine Compound Drilling Slide Table For Bench Drill Adjustment X-Y (see more here: amzn.to/2UGQjri ) because you likely guessed I am building small mill for under $200 and wanted to see if this table would work!

3040 CNC – Cutting Thick Aluminum Success!


In this episode, we will be discussing the realities of cutting a thick (at least thick for the 3040 CNC see more here: bit.ly/2iPTzgu ) piece of 10mm aluminum. It seems the third time was the charm and my first success with using the CAM module of Fusion 360!

Couple CAM/Cut Notes:

1. I used YTF 6mm shank / 3mm x 10mm 2 flute cutter HSS endmill for all of these options
2. I found the Boring strategy to be better to create a recess then the pocketing
3. For boring I used 0.5mm cut depth at 250mm/min
4. For the 2D Contour (cut out) I used 0.25mm cut depth at 250mm/min with step of 6mm/sec (too slow)
5. I used amzn.to/2I5zALU cut with some water as lubricant / coolant.

K40 eBay Chinese CO2 Laser – Electrical Warning This Can Kill You!

Please visit www.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be looking at the electrical risks of a K40 eBay Chinese CO2 Laser. In full disclosure I am not an electrical expert and what I show should NOT be tried at home. The idea for doing this video is as after watching a number of YouTube videos where people are not properly grounding their machines or sticking their hands in buckets of water while the water pump is running is down right scary (keep in mind there is 110 or 220 volts in that bucket of water!). So I created this video to share the risks and demonstrate what can happen as while an interesting tool for the money they are typically of questionable quality which can also be very risky. In short, enjoy but be safe as I like you!
