  • CNC Router

    Hi guys.

    I am seriously thinking about getting a CNC router and would like some input.
    The wife wants me to make new doors for the kitchen cabinets and there are a lot of doors to make. So I figure she can have new doors and I can get a new toy.

    So do I buy one or build one. I see quite a few plans on the net and they don't look that difficult to make but I am not a big fan of using MDF which is what I see on most plans. I want something that has a 24" X 48" cutting area some of the doors are 36" tall.

    Servos or steppers?
    Which software?

    Any other thoughts throw them in too.

      Maybe after I finish with it I'll send it to you because I have no idea where to put it. I guess her car is going to get kicked out of the garage. LOL

        Well since yours is already out the door--- what's fair is fair right? After all it is her project. I'm sure you can live with the cabinet doors the way they are.

              I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

              My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
