Mameman CNC Fun

Recommended Posts

rather than stick these posts in one of the build threads, I thought I'd create a thread with some of my latest CNC fun :)

Zeb, mentioned fake coin doors this afternoon, an hour later we have this!

have not tried it yet but the coin eject holes should be cut to accept the plastic inserts you can get so with a coat of black and a couple cheap inserts it would probably look fairly convincing.

So many projects... so much dust to make.....

Just a big boy with a sweet, sweet toy hey Mameman! :D

(Surprised Zeb didn't suggest to make fake coins also......)

great job!

can you open the doors?

gee you could make complete package for pincab - wooden grill, wooden doors, wooden lockdown bar, maybe even wooden side rails - that looks and feels just like real thing (and better - hands swell less on a wood then on steel, and you can make corners more round so that they don't hurt your hand when you nudge) for a fraction of cost of original parts

nice, your lucky to have a cnc to use, we used to have one at work but stopped using it and sold it.

i am planning on making a cnc with an arduino, i have pretty much all the stuff and instructions but need the time.

Been lurking for awhile now but having seen this thread gotta break my silence!

Mameman why did you have to leave old Blighty?! Seeing your tables has cost me the best part of £1600 so far and not even a piece of wood has been cut! - I hate ya!!

Can't wait to see the finished pics of the cinema room even though I know it will just make me sick!

:beer:

lol, where abouts in blighty are you?

truth is, most of what i am doing now i would struggle to have done in the UK. space being the biggest one, no way i could have afforded to do the CNC in the UK.

swings and roundabouts :)

update on the latest creations :)

while working on the BSG cabinet and starting 2 P2k builds this weekend, I set the machine up with a few things to cut.

Pistol from bladerunner, needs sanding then finishing.

Wow - I am totally speechless. That is an awesome setup you have there. Speaker panels are one thing -but blade runner pistols are a whole new level! I can't wait to see what else you can come up with.

Wow, what an awesome way to cut wood! :-) Can you share some details of your CNC machine with us here? And maybe a picture or two? I saw player1's links about making your own CNC machine, is that what you did?

Anyway: awesome job!
