THUNDERDORK: DIY CNC Router - Homemade Linear Bearings




What do you think about this video?

Ivan Schenkenberg: Too much talking....not very usefull information

TheVideoVolcano: did he just say heightth?

ThunderDork: The DXF stuff is 2d. If you want 3d models you need the IGES or STEP files. Even has a Sketchup version but that won't have true curves.

aasspirin: Hi Chris, please tell me what the diameter of the bearings. Thank you.

ThunderDork: I put a ton more info on my site about this kind of stuff and the process I took creating them step by step. It takes about 2 hours to do the machining, drilling and tapping per bearing and costs about $12 in raw materials.

Jason Sipe: I should've done this for my CNC build!

CintraxBR: I use my cnc router to center/spot drill and after that go drill press. So you dont need to punch each position manually.

ThunderDork: on my site there is a link to the files on cncrouterparts site. its their design.

Mark McDowell: How much do money do u have in these 4 bearings? How long did it take to complete these four

ThunderDork: doing it all on the cnc router right now with some end mills with a longer cutting length. But i'm thinking that might be the way to go. i'm not sure if it solves all the problems. main issue was that the press was drilling at a non perfect perpendicular angle because it wasn't trammed up and its little bed would bend a bit under pressure. if i had a spindle that ran at slower speed i'd probably just use drill bits in it and forgo everything else.
