    Bud makes chips, or, as Nancy says, "Cut that out!"

    Too lazy to retype.

    Just getting started with CNC and here is a post about my first day cutting as well as a little background info.

    Bud makes chips. You may have to scroll up once you get there.

    Hope you find it enjoyable. I sure have had fun.

    Congratulations Bud! That thing will keep the ol noggin functioning won't it?

    You mention that your daughter is an L.D. runner - so is my wife. She just completed her first 100 mile run 4 months ago, and is looking forward to more.
    Personally I think that's why God created Michelins....but what do I know?

    Would you consider making/selling another medal rack?

    CNC Project

    A bunch of years ago when I was layed off I took a CNC Programer / Operator
    Course and I was able to pick my own project.

    The Logo for our BMW Club the Niagara BMW Riders.

    Tried to get some depth perception with a raised relief.

    I even milled out the oak to sink the aluminum down inside.

    That's pretty cool SIBUD.
    I thought it was supposed to be 'Run like a deer' though.

    Keep me on your list (Emily) if you go into production of the Girl Runner Rack, Bud. I knew you could carve the mountain roads with your bike but didn't realize how adept you are carving with other machines.

    Thanks Bud!

    The CNC Machine did the work, all I did was program it & let it fly.

    Sometimes it's "run like a deere" ... referrring to a John Deere, of course.

    How did you get the aluminum anodized? I'm just curious..........

    Nice work Bud While this may be a bit off topic for some, if you happen to be in the West Springfield Mass area- May 14-16 2013, there is quite a machine show. The show is called EASTEC. While it is mainly metal, a lot of the CNC machines displayed by HAAS and others are used for wood and plastic. It is a great show that I have attended some 15 times. OM

    I Sandblasted the aluminum then machined the lettering and logo design.

    Then I installed the gold anodized screws.
