Well, it’s the New Year, and past time for an update; so will try to come up with something with a learning curve. First off, finely got my little Musk-OX CNC router set back up and running again!! As I wanted make some Christmas gifts.
No more than got it up and running and the old computer I used for it died. Was working fine one night when I shut it down, the next morning would not boot-up. I dug out an old laptop and after a lot of fooling around it is working fine; great, actually.
The first project after getting Musk-OX setting up was this little Christmas sled from Vectric free November 2016 project. I think it came out quite nice after Joy’s paint job!
Then we moved on to something I’d been wanting to try since building the Musk-OX. A lithosphere cut in Corina, or in this, case Candlestone that I found on eBay.
That’s the start of about eight hours of cutting with a 4.82 Deg Tapered Angle Ball Tip radius=0.5mm X 1/4″ Shank tungster Solid Carbide Bit. After some time you end up with something like this.
Next up, the frames.
Then we cut the back with a pocket for LED’s and you end up with something like this.
Plug it in… or as Joy likes to say, “Wait for it…!”
One for Maranda, the granddaughter.
and…. the frame of one more I’m working on.
We are also working on / designing a little bigger Musk-OX CNC made mostly from wood, but that we will save for next time.
