A Thermwood could be handy

Postby Kerry Fullington » Tue, Aug 24 2010, 7:12AM

I had to cut and groove some arches with a 27 foot radius. I thought you might get a kick out of my "Router"

Its footprint was a little large so it had to go outside.

I like that alot Kerry.

I feel there are 2 kinds of people that use eCabinets, those that have a Thermwood CNC and those of us that dream of having one.

I'm glad it was a clear sky for you.

Jean,

That sign used to say "Kerry Fullington Custom Cabinet" This spring my wife opened a retail Greenhouse and now my sign is sitting behind the shop until I can find a new place for it.

You know when you make a template sometimes you like to keep them. Did you keep it and wear did you put it in the shop :?:

I'd recognize that machine anywhere. The KF 1000. From memory it has a tolerance factor of about 1/16" and had a few stability issues.
It's not too bad a model,………….. once it’s up and running.

Sometimes you just wish it didn't take so long to setup and had a bit more flexibility. (Not torsional flexibility, it has plenty of that :D )

Won't you void your warranty if you don't keep it under cover? :D

George,

I am keeping the pendulum until the job is finished. It never fails that I ruin one of the curved parts pushing them though the shaper.

Josh,

Where would the adventure be with that.

Mark,

This was an experiment, I normally use a pattern to cut these long radius arcs but that too is time consuming. It actually worked pretty well if you don't force anything, the pendulum guided the router to create a nice arc. The Thermwood is still better.

Kerry-
If it is adventure you seek you should take the drive to Connecticut to pick up your next set of templates! :joker:
I'll take you to the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty or wherever you want while you're here, too!
