Thanks, now I need a shop big enough for one of those, then I need the money to get one! I'm going to have to work until I die to pay that all off.

Re: More Cnc Video / No Computer Screen


On my machine, both video clips have no intelligible audio--just a bit of low-level scratchy sound that I can't make out. Do I need to tweak something here?

Not sure what, but they both have audio for me.

Re: More Cnc Video / No Computer Screen


Will you marry me Gus? Though we will need to tie the knot in CA since Maine just repealed gay marriage.

That is pretty cool Gus. I worked with a granite cnc for about 6 months. I can see that you have some type of built in optimization program with your setup. Very similar to what I used but yours runs alot faster. We were using alphacam. A dual sliding table with laser layout.

That machine is much more than what I thought you had. That is pro baby! Serious pro. Does it have an option for a blade? Or is it all bits?

I'm flattered more than you could know over your proposal but I'm sad to report that I have already promised my hand in marriage to the Loneframer. I'm so sorry Kent. Have you considered Leo?

I have not seen a cnc cutting granite but I would assume it would have to cut way slower. Or are you talking about the software being slower?

Alfacam is made by Planit, the parent company of Cabinetvision. I can buy it as an add on to my package for about $4000. I have had my sales guy give me several demos of it and it is a nice piece of software for the odd ball part that needs a lot of extra machining. It is good for work that you want to profile the edges of parts and a host of other things. You can really get a lot out of that software but for me I have not seen a use that will pay back the investment yet.

As far as the pro baby pro comment goes, thanks for the enthusiasm. We wanted to buy one machine that could see us through our career and we didn't want to over buy either. We are happy with this machine as we feel it will do just that, but it is a mid range machine. They can really get expensive obove this one. They get faster, bigger and heavier. If ours was running all day every day that would have made sence but this one is a quality machine for a small shop. I could bury 15 guys with parts from this machine. Thats good enough.

Re: More Cnc Video / No Computer Screen


This is a company I am sure you are well aware of Gus. This is Northwood and I'm just showing it to show everyone what is possible with a cnc. It's woodworkers **** to have a cnc available. The possibilities are endless aren't they?

When I was programming it was on a Breton dual table. Software and tool path is so very simple, a child could do it.

This is essentially what I did and you can see how quick it can be to program....if you know what you are doing! I am damn good at it. That was my job.......to produce, to make that baby smoke out parts.

This, compared to your cnc Gus, is like watching ice melt. Yawn. But this is seriously how quickly(or slowly) a profile takes on granite. In this video, the guy has the external water turned off which is a huge no no. Those tools are not cheap. Each edge profile takes 4 different tools. Each one takes off just a hair more than the previous one.

This is the exact machine I was responsible for. Laser setup also. You send out a dxf file for where the suction cups go, the laser projects it onto the table. A tool going into a cup.....bad news.

I sent out a file of Angelina Jolie once for the laser just to break up the monotony.
