    CNCRT63: CNC For Beginners With Mark Lindsay

    I think you will enjoy this episode of the CNC Router Tips Podcast because you get to meet Mark Linsay of Mark Lindsay CNC. Mark Lindsay built his first CNC router using plans from Dave Gatton. Since then Mark has grown from a man needing help to a man giving help to the CNC community. His CNC tutorials on his Youtube channel have helped many CNC beginners to get squared away.

    Mark Lindsey is the administrator of the CNC For The Beginner group on Facebook where nearly 9000 members meet and share information about CNC routers, milling machines and laser cutters. Members share information, files and opinions with each other.

    Mark's interest in CNC router started when he wanted to build a Cigar Box guitar using a CNC router. Mark dived in and began researching how to build a CNC Router Table.

    Mike Gencarelli decided that he wanted to automate some common CNC options to make them work better with Mach3. He developed software which allowed him to use multiple wifi relays to turn his equipment off and on. He hooked up his duct collection system, lights and water pumps to his SmartScreens Interface for Mach3 . SmartSreens for Mach3 integrates the control of simple to add Expansion Relays and Smart Wi-Fi Devices which can be controlled by SmartScreens through Mach3 via buttons on the screen, and MCodes in the GCode.

    CNCRT 58: Adventures In Work Holding
    CNC Router Tips Podcast Episode 58

    Work holding is always an adventure for CNC Router Tables. In this episode of CNC Router Tips Bill Griggs tells you about his adventures in work holding.

    We discuss the many types of work holding solutions from T-Track extrusion and clamps, double sided tape, modular plates, pallets systems, vacuum tables, Painters tape and instant glue, toggle clamps, eccentric clamps, vise, soft jaws and more.

    If you can't hold your work piece securely you can not make a good finished part. We often spend more time figuring out how to hold the work piece than we do actually machining the piece.

    In this episode we talk about many of the most popular CNC work holding strategies to help you conquer your adventures in work holding.
