I won’t be able to run the laser this late and be able to go to work tomorrow!  I will likely come to the lab during lunch for about 10 minute and see if I can cut or engrave some things!

 

I spent an huge amount of time cleaning and fixing this machine!

 

 

A great deal of acrylic had accumulated in the exhaust.  It took some doing to remove it all!

I expect the flow to be much better for the exhaust without all of the accumulation.

Filthy Work!

I have the Mill/Drill/Lathe combo working well.  I still can’t find the collet.  I can’t find the endmill set either.  I don’t want to beleive I threw them out  They may be at my friend’s house from my long stay with him.

All the ways are lubricated.  It feels like “a well-oiled machine”!

The Miniature lathe, I use for fine parts,  seems to have a problem with the radial feed.  Ill have to fix that!
