My temporary workstation for the next few weeks, covering for operators still on furlough leave, before they are gradually brought back into the workforce. A few of us spent three days last week preparing the place to cope with the new world. A skeleton crew is now up and running, and most importantly the laughter and banter is back. It’s been missed by me during the last 6 weeks.
The component being machined were modelled in SketchUp as part of the full design, and then exported as a DXF file using Simple DXF plugin for the CAM software to read.
Bad news is, the round head tenon machine is still broken in a workshop across the other side of the country.
But, having a 5 axis CNC machine gives the advantage that I’ll be able to program it (fairly easily I hope) to machine the 45 deg angled tenon components that are required to complete the current jobs. (There’s actually one on the wall between the monitor and power isolator). I have a set of LayOut drawings of the component that I can use for that.
Picking up the pieces, it’s nice to see at least some normality.
