For $10,000 I think I could buy a new one already put together, good to go.

He went from trying to use a drill as a milling machine to buying a 10k cnc right quick... 

AMD 3700X GTX 1660 Super

Gigabyte X570 Aorus pro 16g 3200MHZ

Cooler Master MS110 combo fractal meshify C

Will be adding Samsung SSD's and an NZXT AIO to cool the CPU when adding voltage.

We build a CNC Router from CNC Router Parts!

 

Check out CNC Router Parts: https://www.cncrouterparts.com/

 

Buy end mills:
On Amazon: http://geni.us/8wIBq
On Newegg: http://geni.us/DNYoA

 

Was this project created just for fun of making one using a CNC machine from scratch or was it actually the most optimal option for its usage case when being compared to commercially available solutions on the market? @LinusTech @AlexTheGreatish

Hope this information post was helpful  ?,

No way that is 10 grand.  That looks like a $4k amateur-hour kit, for $10k you could buy a proper metal-capable CNC that would be a lot more versatile than a router table.

 

At least hire someone who actually knows how to engineer shit properly to use the thing!

Yeah. I Mean for this money you could get an Shaper (Which is enough for LTT projects) + a used Plasma Cutter + a Laser cutter + a welder. What they really should think about is a metal 3D Printer. Thats something I would really love to see.

I also had to flip the top of my laser etcher/cutter as they did in the video. Difference being, mine is a5 size, so much smaller. Also mine does not work, because half the parts were missing from the shipment. ? (Was a present, so not my fault a dodgy BangGood one was purchased)

My father and I went halfs on a £5k CnC router setup, 1000x600mm bed. We use VCarve , but also Aspire. Highley recommend u look into gettting Aspire, expensive for the average joe looking for a hobby kit, but we got it, and im sure you lot wouldnt blink at the price. Oh and that CnC,, that cutting head is beast, way faster than ours :P , though we tend to do much finer detail work with ballnose bits, so much smaller.

 

One question though,, how are you using Mach 3 ? i did not see a parallel connection coming form your laptop. Do u use a adapter ?

 

if any1 is interetsed on what can be done with these machines check out me and my old mans facebook page:D

I think it should be called  Drillbert 

 

I'm just saying it here because it'll get lost in the YT comments, plus a think a large portion of the audience is too young to get the reference O_O 

 

*EDIT* Shit, that comment is gaining traction... ?

I would look at lockout tagout when doing maintenance like changing a bit like that.

Hello, I apologize in advance for my level of English, I am a French guy ^^" .

 

I wanted to give you a little tip about your dust vacuum, do not just install and connect the vacuum cleaner to your CNC machine, it is better to install a cyclone between the two, to avoid that your filter cloth do not get dirty and get clogged. But also the cyclone will prevent you from having plenty of dust (micro dust) that passes through the filter and goes everywhere in your room, as everything will remain in the cyclone compartment.

 

Great episode in passing

I get that you guys make money from videos, but buying a router to make useless things just to make videos of those same useless things maybe isn't the smartest way to spend money.

 

Do you really have a need for CNC equipment, lathes and welding gear that you will be using it so frequently to do a ton of stuff??? Because you don't need any of that for PC hardware product reviews. Also, it's not like your audience will be buying this same gear to do the same impractical stuff.

 

This channel has grown to the point where it is now diverging away from it's principal theme, and makes so much money that they now have to spend it on stupid things in order to have an excuse to make more content. Really??? If LMG are so stuck for ideas they are hiring the wrong people because I have over a dozen PC related build ideas worth doing that I have yet to see.

 

Honestly, you should have just given the money spent to a local charity, get your ugly mugshot on the TV news, enjoy the tax write off and call it a day.

I worked with a router for 2 ish years and I've got a couple "upgrades" you guys could use in the future that we used on ours. 

1: Use a vacuum table for securing parts instead of double sided tape (if you want to use tape, use this instead). We used 2 sheets of MDF glued together to create a vacuum for material to stick to instead of using double stick tape. The bottom sheet had channels cut into it in a square pattern so that the vacuum can be distributed more. The top sheet of MDF was considered a sacrificial layer so that if the material wasn't the thickness that is advertised or the bed isn't perfectly level, it isn't a big deal if the bed gets cut into. This also allows for the bed to be re-leveled by taking a wide bit and going over the whole bed to smooth it out. Now for the actual vacuum setup, we split the vacuum into 4 quadrants of the table, because if the whole table isn't covered then the parts won't stick as well. We used PVC splitters and manual valves to control which sections had the vacuum applied.

2: For picking up chips, we used a "boot" that clamped around the cutting motor and had a industrial vacuum attached to it. This had it follow the cutter without needing any human interaction. We also would use bristles around the motor to keep the chips in and allow the vacuum to still work at higher z-positions, while the bristles would just collapse when the bit lowers. Our current one is made using 2 plex pieces that have a channel cut into them so the vacuum can be attached next to the bit, but the channel transfers it to right under the bit. We also used 2 pieces so that when we cut aluminum (which you could probably do on your router, just be careful) we would take the bottom piece off, which was just held using magnets.

3: Cool your bits using compressed air. We use something similar to this and sent compressed air through it so that we could move chips in whatever direction we want and keep the bits sharper longer. You will need this if you want to do anything with aluminum, as it will destroy bits.

4: Put your control computer (not a laptop) in a cabinet under the table and have only the monitor, keyboard, and mouse in the blast zone of chips.

5: Label the wrenches that you use to change the bit, because they will walk away if you don't.

 

Overall fun video to watch and convinced me to make an LTT account for this comment. Also when you get a TIG welder make sure you get the correct tungsten and gas for the metals you plan to weld.

Cool, yea breakout board. My father has been looking to get one of these so we can use Mach3, its ether that or build up one of our old LGA 775 PC's with a motherboard that has a parallel port. Similar cost... porbably end up going with a breakout board setup to be honest.

 

As DJO971 mentioned, make sure to build a cyclone into your dust extraction system. And a little advice from our experience, build an enclosure ! .. that thing will coat your entire building in dust in no time flat, especialy when cutting MDF, trust me take the time to build an enclosure it will be well worth the effort.

Since u mentionedi n the vid you will be cutting plastics, make sure u have some compressed air cooling the bit.

Linus literally answers your first question in the intro to the video. No, they probably don't need it, but it makes building things significantly easier. I think its great that they are branching out into different topics and giving people an easy to understand video about other tech areas, rather than just computers (they are called LinusTechTips not LinusComputerTips).
