Re: DIY CNC Dust Boot

So...
After using the new dust curtain for a week - I've decided that it was in fact too stiff - and reverted back to the thinner and more flexible door sweep. It's much more flexible and conforms better during height changes such as raising and lowering events.

Re: Setting up jig coordinates

Nice video love the clamps where did you get them? Thanks They are Festool Clamping Elements - designed to work with their MFT surfaces. I machined similar holes directly into the MDF pallet and it seems to work pretty well. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000JNEC1Q?psc=1&redirect=true&re...

When I want to retract the head to the rear of the machine – to get it out the way when loading stock – that is Park – G28 – which brings it to X ce...

Re: Setting up jig coordinates

Hi Chuck, I most often machine dimensional hardwood lumber and use a variety of fixtures to hold and access the parts in various ways. I’ve created a variety of tooling pallets that I can swap out on the machine and each can hold the parts as needed. The challenge for me - how do you work in fixture...
