Re: Flips not lining up?

We have been directing our clients to use a "flip fence" exactly like that for almost 20 years. It was necessary to perform back machining operations for mullion doors produced with Panelmetrix. We currently provide our clients with a small program that will allow them to create a "fl...

Re: Best Method Of Inverting Z axis

Be careful to review the other axis as well... Thermwood's machines have used "right-hand rule" for decades. You will want to check and see if you software "rotates" the X and Y axis in order to stay relative to the +Z downward direction. (This would be "Inverted right-hand ...

Re: Output an image to popup with AFL

Hmmmmm... Sorry... for both the "New Generation COntrol Only" solution AND that you are limited to the old pre-2000 OS/2 based controller. Although, if it still cuts and makes money! Can't complain about that. NOTE: Even on the newer generation controls, the AFL Print Window is limited to ...

Re: Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

I knew if I spouted something about using a KD pattern that the smarties like Jeremy would come out with the process. Hopefully the extra holes in the modified KD pattern (2 above and 2 below) will work. With a "phantom shelf" adding the line boring, you would have to make sure the positio...

Re: Drill adj shelf bottom for shelf pin

Sometime ago, I believe someone had asked about small slots in the bottom that would correspond to the pins - in order to keep the shelves from sliding forwards AND to conceal the pins.

Perhaps a special KD pattern could both of these things?

Re: Would like to post ecab pics and final pics

JR, My 5 cents* would be that - it is better to upload the pictures as they can be viewed directly. People can then review the smaller representations and "click-to-enlarge" as they go. A ZIP file would require people to download the ZIP and unarchive it before they can view the pictures -...

Re: miterfolding solid surface

Stuart, You would not necessarily need a 5 axis machine. A "3 axis" machine with a saw/v-groove aggregate, a programmable C-axis (okay now "4 axis") and a CAD/CAM software that supports aggregates should be able to do the job. In order to handle the aggregate, you would be probab...
