THUNDERDORK: DIY CNC Router - Homemade Linear Bearings




What do you think about this video?

Matthew Goulart: How can such a thin rail be effective? If your machine for wood only?

James Velasquez: Checked out the info on your site, i think you should put in that blurb from it that states they are basically the same price as the ones you can get on ebay and this is purely a DIY thing not a cost savings thing.

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

videovulcan: did he just say heightth?

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
