Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


I have always wanted a profile chart for shaper & router cutters and searched the net over & over again.. nothing ever came up..so I decided that I would compiled a full compilation of these cutters ... you name it from A~Z - I ended up with a rather large plot... 36"h x 65" long... I used the BL series and the pricing..

this picture does not do any justice to how crisp & clean this came out,,, I'll take a snap shot when I finish this to give you a better idea on how nice this came out...

I did this on Excell.... linked it to publisher.. if someone wants this.... I spent a considerable amount of time putting this together off & on... still have a few to finish this for the shapers.. and the Router profile chart.. I could do this all on one as well 124" long x 36"H ....

If any of you have a 36" plot printer.... & MS publisher.. you can print this write out.... or if you want one or the Publisher file... PM me.. this really came out sweet I can edit this in a snap w/wo pricing or any information you want or don't want...

Re: Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


I looked at that one already.. way to simple.. I have seen at least 25 profile charts... most of which are broken up by catagory..and then I found the BL series to be the most expansive- so that's what I did..

The bits are actually linked to Publisher through Excel so if there are any changes..it updates automatically. I did the BL cutters Shaper/router.. because they had an extensive profile availability.. The KC series was limited in profiles offered..

I wanted a full blown expansive chart ... and there is a LOT

Cut & Past each bit "category" profile & chart into Excel (linked) and then to publisher.. pain staking but by doing it this way I have some flexibility with the layout when ploted... I'm going to plot & then print this out... take a snap shot so you can see just how nice this is....


I appreciate the thought Festerized... but there really is not one full blown shaper/router profile chart out there-including dimensions and description.... as far as i know....

Re: Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


If you want to link it to your website.. knock your socks off.. I have them broken down in an Excel workbook and they are broken down by catagory.. then it's all compiled on one plot in publisher. I am doing this chart for identification purposes ... every one that has a shaper may have different bore size .... This will be a rather large plot
When it's done.. like I said.. I will post a picture of the finished plot..

Re: Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


Working on that one next... the Shaper profile has been finished but I had a problem with the plotting in publisher & drivers for the 700C - as a stated above.. that has been resolved. I am working in she shop today and after that I will be printing up the Shaper profile.. next is the router profile... just have to give me some time guys,,,

Do you guys want me to print these out ... and send them to you? First and foremost I am not doing this to make money but my paper & ink is all I am asking for...I thought 5$ is more than fair.. and what ever it takes to ship to were you are....I think the worst case scenario would be $10.00 for you all together.
Other than that I can upload the files I created for the shaper profile for excel & Publisher to you via e-mail... providing you have Office XP with publisher and then you can take it to a printing shop where they can print it out for you.. but that may may be costly.. FedEx charges $.75 cents per sq ft black/white so your looking at $11.25 + what ever your sales tax is..... color is $9.00 per sq ft. so that's $130.00 for color... I can do a color plot if you like I have the 350C E/wide plot printer but I can't do that for 5 bucks..... frankly it would be a waist IMO the only color you see is the cutter and then the wood profile thats it.. Grey scale is the way to go as far as this profile chart... I'll have this picture up hopefully later on tonight so you can see what it looks like......

Question

Re: Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


If you have any suggestions.. that would be greatly appreciated..

I spent several hrs last night trying to print this out... maybe I have to get some different publishing software...?

the picture is a crude downgraded version of the profile ... the sample I gave way back when is what they look like individualy .. I had to down grade it to throw it up here.....

my problem is the plot...... is anyone familiar with publisher? keeps wanting to tile the plot.. and I am loosing my patience with it....


thanks

A frustrated B.

Re: Shaper & Router Profile Chart....


What I had was selected under paper size was "Custom" I mean... you would think this is a custom size...write.. so according to this artical I had to select "normal" going to try this...


NOTE: You can substitute the actual dimensions of the poster or banner that you want to create as well as the actual dimensions of the poster or banner that you want to print. For best results, follow these steps before you add any text or graphics to your banner or poster:
  1. Start Publisher 2000.
  2. In the Catalog dialog box, click the Exit Catalog button.
  3. On the File menu, click Print Setup.
  4. Select HP DesignJet in the Name list.
  5. Click Properties, and then click the Paper Size tab.
  6. Click to select the Fit To This Page check box, and then click More Sizes.
  7. In the custom Paper Sizes dialog box, type the dimensions of the banner or poster that you want to actually print. For example, assume that you want to print a banner that is 36 inches by 72 inches. Set the width to 72 inches, the height to 36 inches, and then click OK . (This step determines the size of the publication that will be outputted by the plotter.)
  8. In the Application Page Size section, click the More Sizes button.
  9. For the name Custom 1, type the dimensions for the publication that is actually being created. For example, you created a banner that is 18 inches by 36 inches as outlined in step 6. Set the width to 36 inches, the height to 18 inches, and then click OK. (This step determines the size of the publication before it is enlarged and outputted by the plotter.)

    NOTE: The larger dimension of this measurement should be less than 48 inches.
  10. Click to select either the Landscape or Portrait check box, and then click OK.
  11. Click the Layout View tab.
  12. Optional: Click to select the Show a Preview After Pressing the Print Button check box.

    This step allows you to preview your print job before it is sent to the plotter.
  13. Verify that the scaling information displayed at the bottom of the dialog box is correct.

    For this example, the program page size should be 18 inches by 36 inches, and the size of the enlarged page should be 36 inches by 72 inches.
  14. Click OK twice.
  15. On the File menu, click Page Setup. < this is where my error was.
  16. Click Normal, and then click OK.
  17. Add the text or graphics that you want to appear on your banner. When you view the page in Publisher, it appears to be 18 inches by 36 inches. However, when you print the page, it prints as a continuous 36 inches by 72 inches page.
  18. well see......
