Little CNC Milling Machine (Part II)

Thu, 05 Jan 2017 03:33:03 +0000

Hopefully you’ve read Little CNC Milling Machine (Part I) in which I completed the mechanical build of a tiny CNC machine. Here’s Part II! The electronics didn’t take much time at all, it was pretty much “plug and play” as far as connecting the three stepper motors and the spindle. No stripping, cutting or crimping […]

Little CNC Milling Machine (Part I)

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 14:59:05 +0000

I’ve completed the mechanical build of a small CNC mill/engraver. I’ve seen these on eBay from various sellers (like this, this, this, and this) and I’ve even seen one on Amazon from LinkSprite. I didn’t order from any of those sellers… Somehow I happened across a blog post at TC Maker about a CNC Building […]

I designed a small part to hold a panel mount USB cable. I started with the Phoenix Connector Mount I briefly mentioned before, and did some quick modifications to make it work with the USB cable. I designed this thing in OpenSCAD though I did borrow a few elements from another recent model so that […]

I should probably just submit this to Hackaday’s Fail of the Week because this is full of fail. I’m going to share it all anyway. Sometimes at work we make our own Ethernet cables, and we usually test them by connecting them to computers, or whatever weird electronic thing we’ve built, and we hope they […]

Bitbeam Fan Holder

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 03:57:29 +0000

I have a computer fan on my workbench at home that helps draw the fumes away from me when I solder. I’ve been meaning to get some Carbon filters for it (which I just ordered) but I also want one for my desk at work, so I finally got around to building a little stand […]
