I’ve owned my Shapeoko since February but I finally just got around to actually using it the last couple of weeks. I have 2 kids under the age of 5 and a house that is in a constant state of remodeling so my time is pretty limited right now!
I learned a lot by doing this project and what you are seeing is actually the second attempt of this sign. The first one ended in tragedy when my Shapeoko’s drag chain got caught on the bracket on the side of my machine where the drag chain is supposed to lay. Needless to say, that bracket is no longer on my machine! My Shapeoko is a xxl and has the z plus.
Overall I am pretty happy with the results and I plan on doing a lot more things as I have time. I didn’t mess with the speeds and feeds on this one much and just adjusted by ear as necessary. This sign had about an hours worth of cut time. Feedback is welcome and sarcastic comments will be graded so make them good!
