Machining parts on the new home / garage VMC. Mill Drill and Rigid Tap in 6061.
Machining some test 6061 aluminum with flowing coolant. Everybody is a hero in aluminum. It’s taken about a month or so to go from purchase of the VMC to actually making parts in the home shop using my “spare” time. A bit of loc-line adjustment and the tools to work with loc line. #firstchips #cncmill
Vertical CNC Mill First Power up.
I hooked up three phase power from an American Rotary AD-20 phase converter to the new to me Excel PMC vertical cnc mill. Repairs were made to the machine’s door slide and inital Fanuc troubleshooting of a servo drive error ended up being a fiber optic cable that had disconnected during shipping.
