    CNC Router - Should You Take the Plunge?

    CNC Router - Should You Take the Plunge?

    We see CNC routers making beautiful things and there is a draw to see more. Then, one day, we find ourselves researching the machines and before we know it, we want to buy one.

    Then we get scared and hold off for months. What is it that holds us back from our creative selves?

    I think it's just because it is such new territory that is so strange to us. What worries me is how some people will hold off for years, even a lifetime, while their creative spirit calls them to create.

    If you are drawn to this CNC router stuff and it doesn't go away, then your spirit is telling you it's time to CREATE.

    CNC Routers...A Router For The Beginner

    CNC Routers...A Router For The Beginner

    This episode talks about the BobsCNC Evolution series routers. Routers made of wood. Yes, wood. And they perform far beyond what I ever expected.

    what impressed me about the BobsCNC the most was the 'sittin' at the kitchen table' kind of feel from their business model.

    Considering a CNC router but not so sure. Take a look at Bob's. I do many Youtube videos on it, as well.

    Happy CNC'ing!

    CNC Router Glass Engraving

    CNC Router Glass Engraving

    One of the most unusual things you can do on a CNC router is engraving. Most CNC'ers don't realize they can engrave. Glass, soft metals, acrylic, and other materials. Not hard metals. though.

    My favorite is glass engraving. The type of tool you use to engrave is called a drag bit. Because it drags. The router motor or spindle is not turned on but the CNC part still does its job, moving around the project as you programmed.

    This YouTube video shows it in action with amazing backlighting on glass

    I did I remember to mention the tool I use is also used by NASA. The Widgetworks diamond engraver. NASA and Widgetworks...an interesting combination of names. The diamond engraver is found here if you want to look at it. The full list of links are in the YouTube video description.

    The router bit starter set I spoke of for CNC router beginners can be seen here.

    Happy CNC'ing!
