    Hi Guys,

    Im just getting to know this awesome machine,  I made a MPCNC with 500x500mm volume

    I had a Dremel 395 laying around so i tried this first.

    Last saturday i was wondering if i could mill some aluminium with the Dremel, turns out you can!

    Here are some more pictures:

    That’s so cool! Can you post your whole setup? I’d like to see the aluminum extrusion baseplate. Thats super cool.

    Thanks!

    I don’t have a clear picture of the machine.

    The bed is made from 7 80x40mm Aluminium extrusion profiles, we use those a lot at work and these were leftovers.
    i layed the extrusions on the sides and tapped the ends M8, then i usde 30×30 L profile to connect the profiles together.

    Here is a render of the machine, i have yet to make the table frame though.

    That’s really cool. It definitely gives off a more professional vibe to it.

    Awe come on, the Mad Max on a budget vibe is still cool too, right?

    I bet that plate does give a very easy surface to clamp too though, I agree, nice choice.

    Haha yes of course. No ill will given towards the Mad Max but I should have said more industrial look.

    So let me get this straight. You were just kicking around on a Saturday all “Hmmmm, aluminum? Hell, why not?” and proceed to churn out a functional, rather sharp-looking piece, because…well…just because?

    And I’m over here on my 3 or 4th version of a spoilboard that might actually work.

    I’m impressed he did it with a dremel!

    So i tried it again today with different settings and got the best results yet!

    Also i cut the routing time in half! oke granted i used 5mm Alu instead of 6mm but still!

    The 3d printed fan i mounted to the dremel toolhead works wonders for chip clearing!

    Here are some settings i used and also a video of the finishing passes 🙂

    The finnish on the part could be better and i am still trying things to get a better part finnish

    So my first thought when seeing the title was “Cool, did he use an Arduino to control the beer opener”, but it was just a hand operated mechanical contrivance. I’m sooo disappointed. 🙂
