I think the 3d option will be treated more like a fun sherline accessory that only sees occasional use, while the main goal would be a cheap cnc mill. The way Im designing it the extruder it should be as simple as a sherline headstock to fit then simply plug 3 wires into the main board. I know its n...

jsr i was thinking of converting my sherline to cnc then building a abs extruder head like on the makerbot . It would be interchangeable like the normal sherline head, could be a great way to make disposable things like this, just set it printing a set of 25 or so go watch some tv come back to shoot...

clean and compact machining Well, based on those two pictures of your dorm, you don't appear to be too concerned with cleanliness and organization. :lol: hahah Im not concerned, but my roommate on the left (you cant see the picture) has already written a long list of "cleanliness suggestions" for m...

clean and compact machining

Hey guys, well Im pretty well settled into my dorm now so Im considering bringing in atleast my sherline lathe, maybe my mill too. My school does have a decent machine shop but they have lots of rules and prefer that it is only used for school projects so it would be nice having my lathe for simple ...

you should just be patient and get to know your machine, Ive seen some incredible impressive stuff made on those lathes. Dont expect perfection, look at every project as a learning experience.

regulator controls the air pressure, liquid c02 at roomtemp is about 900psi i believe, a regulator would keep that down to a safer level from 50 -500ish psi

another you may want to look out for when using co2 is it cools when it expands so if you are using alot in a pvc chamber without the proper regulator/stabilizer you may freeze a pvc a gun making it very brittle.

looks great, Id throw some grooves or knurling on the collar and maybe a tail cap to protect the shrader. Does it hold pressure for extended periods? Awesome job

Haha that's funny my current girlfriend hates it, apparently too noisey and it messes up her hair. If it's safety you're worried about I'd stay away from the quad it seems safer because you have four wheels but you're still dead if you hit anything or if anything hits you just like on a bike, and ve...

An s2k would be fun also or if you have more to spend ...

why not a motorcylce? I know atvs are a lot of fun to ride but so are motorcylces which are much more convenient and common on the road. Most atv's I've seen are more focused on the "all terrain" part not so much for road use. I doubt a atv is that much more maneuverable than a car and not much safe...
