Default Idle hands at the CNC

I cooked up a little 60 minute timer mostly out of boredom but also because I keep forgetting to turn my coolant skimmer off and flood the floor with sludge.

All Home Despot parts put together my way starting with a 1/2" single port PVC box, calipers, Google-fu, and CAM software. The engraving was done by text and also taking a clean picture of the faceplate and messing with a jpg to dxf converter and importing. I modeled the basic shape as a solid and made three centered work offsets.

And yes it's really 10A because of the C13/C14 connection's limits. May add a push button breaker on top if I find one floating around.

The mill is just a typical Haas VF-7 / 50, model year is 2007. Has 5 Kurt D810's, Rennishaw, and 1000 psi coolant. 84"x 32" XY travel. About as strong as a small 40 taper Mazak sadly.

Nice work, Tansit.
We who have no CNC mill cannot sympathize with you having a weak one

I'm not sure either, Tan but I suspect it has something to do with genetics.

That would be a safe bet, USMCPOP is always coming up with pertinent and applicable data, from somewhere. ..

Good job, Tan!

BTW, I know of an old grizzled Navy vet looking for some spiral fluting work on a couple? 16" barrels. I think he posted about it in this category somewhere... Might be a good side project if you're THAT bored.

I believe he said some straight ones as well. Said he could hide them under the handguard.

This raises a question for me. Is there any benefit of one type over the other? Is there any strength difference or performance difference between the two types?
The voices in my head are saying that the straight flutes are more rigid.Is that correct? ...inquiring minds and all that. ..
