Sorry, I didn't communicate clearly. .. Your intent is what I was 'assuming', but that isn't what I communicated ... my issue.

Keep going ... yep, I like following what you are doing. ... Take care

Jack, one of the guys on the JoesCNC forum made a laser shoe that seems to work quite well:

I might just build on one day.

Robert, Love the dust shoe, looks awesome! Good luck with the laser, watching intently for your progress.

Strange coincidence you ask Pete !
As today was finally the day I made the laser olding rig in order to simply swap from router to laser ( the laser sit on top of a disc that is inserted in one of the router holder ) !

Made some 1st baby steps simply to see the operations of it.

Red arrows = Laser
Blue arrows = X-Acto knife cuts !

Now the...fun part !.....Learning curve
Will keep in touch as more photos will follow !

Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

So, do you have a swappable holder for your X-Acto as well?

Hey guys !!...
long overdue news
Still alive....@_# !!
This past W-E put on another new sacrifice bed, this time using Extira, less prone to swelling through humidity changes.

Obviously, if my 1st layer (stiffing one) would also be Extira, it be best....but, for know, this will do....better then reg MDF


Also.....another time where my reliable PC-7519 needed some new bearing.
Got to be a little more careful on the force (cutting load) I'm asking this work horse
IMG_1172SR.jpg

The guys at the bearing specialty store I go suggested me to try these C3 class bearing,

allowing less friction under heat (load) since there less ....say tight in the bearing race way !
Will see ?!?

Later yall....

Bonne année Bob!
How well is the lazer working .How many watt and what can you cut with it?
I just got a new router like yours now I know who to ask about the bearing when the time come .My last ones were an old rockwel and porter cable but the same model and it got realy hard to get collet for them . To bad I miss you last time at lac brome .Those customers turn weird on me so I decide to drop them. Your shop must look good now with all the hard work .Next time in the city drop by we are at the same place still.looooong story. Salut

Hey Bud....Comment Y va l'père

Laser....well, gave it some trial, but, really...nothing exiting since then, to much to do else. But funny enough, this past few day I've been looking back in to it, then ( & still ) my real trouble was getting G-code for it. NOW, after some time on this ( as none or not much before) I've got a few good solutions.
So....more to come with this laser !

Shop wise, not much either on that part, not much expansion nor new renovations this past two yrs....lack $$ ...
Should have PM you...but...o-well !!

Hey...take good care & speak to you soon....you silly baboon
midnight oil toié-too ....
