Mount from spindle

Postby paerley » Sun May 15, 2011 9:50 pm

I've made a simple bracket that's relatively universal. I designed it with dust collection mounting in mind, but I figured others may be interested.

Here's what it looks like:

I'm attaching the svg and nc files for it as well. I designed this in inkscape.

Addendum: The lines in that picture are the CUTS, not the final look. It was programmed for 1/8" tooling cutting into 1/8" material in 2 0.0625" passes. Feed rate is 10IPM, changable in the beginning parameters for the file.

I've got much code-work on my plate, but when it calms down a bit, I'm going to take this and Sparky's layout that he posted and have a go. I'll post results with pics once I do so folks can get a visual.

Awesome job and thanks for the post!

I've added a visual of the prototype to the first post, with an object to give perspective.
