I’m starting a wax sealing stamp and wedding’s favors shop.
So I mostly will engrave on brass and wood maybe acrylic too.
I’m going to show you some of the finishing results and I want you to advice me with the right end mill to achieve that work.
Also I would appreciate any advice for buying additional must have accessories. Like a Low Profile Vise or a Threaded Table?
And is it a noisy machine? I live in second floor flat, will it bother my neighbors?
Just to let you know, I have 0 experiences in CNC and milling machine, is nomad right for me or am I taking a risky move? To be honest I’m very nervous
The Threaded Table is great for clamping arbitrary things in place which aren’t suited to being held on the MDF wasteboard — I believe that it would be well-suited to the sort of work you are planning on doing — I used it for a similar project:
The Nomad is wonderfully quiet — I use mine in our basement, directly beneath my daughter’s bedroom — like my wife, she’s a light sleeper, but never notices when I’m using the machine.
I was brand stinkin new to CNC just Jan/Feb this year and purchased my Nomad. The Nomad is pretty well set up to take out of the box and start playing. Since then I have made some pretty neat and very tiny things.
I personally think it’s a little noisy, or maybe my garage-to-house walls are thin. The volume definitely increased when I cut brass too. But, maybe my feeds and speeds were off.
That being said, my wife and son have no problems sleeping either when my Nomad is working.
Thank you for your fast reply.
everything sound good for me and I feel more excited than before.
Now about the end mills I have seen this link before but to be honest still not sure which one suits me better!
I feel .032” Square End, can be a good choice what do you think?
#501 and #502 — they have rounded tips though, so wouldn’t make crisp corners / points, and you’d need to use a feeler gauge to make up for the thickness lost in the cutting due to the rounded tip — at least in theory, if one can find one which matches that thickness and could be added to the tool length sensor reliably (I may be over-thinking this).
