Death in the Family (#201)

There is a picture of #201 in a casket now VHB taped to my co workers cube. You sir have set a standard.


You missed your calling!!! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Today whilst prototyping some stuff, I had a little accident. This was a brand spanking 203Z end mill before suffering a homing/probing issue on a non C3D controller. When I pressed GO it changed the work position to the BitSetter then went straight through the steel button at 24000rpm.


Yikes! R.I.P. BitSetter too

Can only say whoops and maybe an OUCH!

Was it the CNC xPRO V4 controller?

Nope it was a cheap generic controller cobbled together with external drivers… I’m ripping it off the machine tomorrow!

Hope it wasn’t your trial of UCCNC and tool change script :slight_smile:

I wanna see the collateral damage :smiley: /rubbernecking


Funnily enough that one is running really well - it just took almost a year to get setup. Undocumented and little to no help from the company.

This was a mega on one of our test rigs.

I can’t show you that without people holding my beer :wink:


Man, I’ve been wanting to do that for a long time! :smiley:

I wouldn’t recommend it :joy:

I’ll hold your beer Luke! It’s Guinness, right? :beer:
