Re: Beach Scene in Cherry

I like the way you used the bark inclusion or knot in the over all design. The carving is nice and because you recognize the buildings it means more to you. In the dead of winter you can imagine yourself at the beach. sitting on the deck with an adult beverage and soaking up the sun.

Re: Feeds and Speeds

Good advise above. I have had spotty results emailing router bit makers about feeds and speeds. Whiteside is very responsive with their feeds and speeds. I had bought a Whiteside 6210 One Inch 3 Wing spoil board cutter and emailed them and they replied back the same day. They recommended 100 IPM and...

Re: spoilboard issue

Here is a picture of the spoil board I just finished. I put T-slots in about 3 inches apart and 1/4-20 Tee Nuts in from the bottom. I have some L brackets I use to anchor the board and use the t-slots with 3/8" clamps or the 1/4-20 bolts to secure the work piece. So far it has worked pretty good. I ...

Re: New to Me Shark Pro Plus HD

I am on a few forums like Router Forums Sawmill Creek Lumber Jocks Thunderbird Nest XDA Developers etc. This Forum has the least amount of participation by the members of any forum I log into. I wonder why I bother to post here when no one answers anyones questions or comments. Most forums are about...

Re: Controller Replacement BlackBox

So just looking at the Blackbox it would seem to work if you really wanted it to. My concern is about propriety systems like NWA. If NWA went away then the license files needed to run their controller could not be generated and your controller would become a brick. I do not think NWA is going away b...

New to Me Shark Pro Plus HD

I bought a used Shark Pro Plus HD and have been setting up for about 2 weeks. I cleaned up the machine and replaced the router and got a billet router mount from Dixie Billet. The original router was a Bosch but sounded terrible. The previous owner had smeared caulk or some type of adhesive all over...

Re: Router Depth in Billet Mount

Thanks for your reply. I have noticed that in pictures most routers are set pretty low in the mounts. I have seen what you are talking about in that the first cuts the dust boot is not touching the material but late deeper cuts the dust bristles are touching the material. I will play around with the...

Re: Feeds and Speeds

I had posted about replacing my Bosch router on the Shark Pro Plus HD and one of the forum members sent me some pdf documents about his upgrades over time. It was very good information but either in the email he sent or the pdf he recommended the following: Set your router on 3 and forget it. The Bo...

Re: Tightening Nuts in Gantry

Thanks for your reply. I had thought of making a custom wrench out of an existing wrench but the needle nose pliers worked. People always come up with an answer when confronted with a problem. I bought my machine used and have visited the NWA site quite a few times. I find their amount information q...
