The baby beast is cutting away - Peurto Ordaz, Venezuela

(Note added by Admin: "My table is for boards 1.200mm*2.400mm, official measure of MDF in my country.")

Hello. My name is Hugo Carradini and I am a metal sculptor that was trying to get a small machine to cut stainless steal and find out a forum called CNC Zone that trapped me. Since I find out that I could do a CNC machine (that was a year and a half ago) I just can't stop thinking any other thing that is not related to CNC.

I started with a small wood machine for cutting wood and plastics just to learn the basics, then I draw my own design using metal frame that you can see in http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=23649 and know I am ready to start with a big man toy. I forgot the plasma for a while because I want to learn the basics and is, I think, easier the electronics for a router machine.

My partner is an architect that owns a wood shop so there is plenty of work to do. I am the kind of person that finishes what I start so hope to be posting soon and hope to get when needed the help that you people can give. Thanks Gerald for this great opportunity and hope to end up with a machine I can proudly show.

English is not my native language so excuse me for any mistake.

Regards
Hugo Carradini

I have some body taking care of that website and apparently forgot to reactivate it . (I recognize not having experience handling a web page)If the problem keeps I will have designed a new one and is a shame because it is a nice page.

OK. I will take care. Talking about Mcmaster, I have a problem. I wanted to buy the cable carrier, the spring and the gas spring. They receive the order , send a e-mail confirmation notice an at the next day this
Hugo,

Thank you for sending us this order. Due to the ever-increasing complexity of U.S. Export regulations, McMaster-Carr has decided to only accept orders from a few, long-established customers of ours overseas. We cannot accept your order, and regret any inconvenience this causes you.



Kris

I don't want to speculate, sow I will like to know is there is a way I can pay some one to buy my stuff and have it send to mi address in Miami.
Or maybe another address where I can buy the gas spring and the cable carrier.
Thanks
Hugo Carradini

I did not have any problems. They don't have the wires. I had to get these from other prices at a very high price.

Hello friends.
I got confirmation and UPS tracking numbers in almost all the electronics including motors needed for my project. I am having problems with the Geckos (send two mails and no answer yet) and the cables. I need and address to buy on line, the cables, before a have to bother Reza that kindly is helping me with the McMaster stuff and the racks.
The laser cut parts will be send by Donald.
Hope you guys understand that some times is difficult for me to get the things I need (every thing has to be imported)and language is a barrier to understand exactly what has to be done.
But I love this project and I am decided to do it right.
Thanks to all

Hello Gerald and friends.
Here goes the first post of my process "kitchen" project.
Don't be to critic with the holes for the fan "I know there is no excuse, will be fix soon"
One problem I have is that we are suppose, in my country, to work with 110 volts but we really get is 120 volts so my transformer is giving me 12.8 volts instead of 9 volts. ¿Can I work with that voltage or do I have to low it down to 9 volt?
Thanks for the comments.

Hugo,
Very tidy workmanship. Great job!

I think you will find the fan will not be necessary.
I too started out with a fan and found out they are an unwanted source of dust infiltration.
I leave mine on for days at a time.
There has been no heating problems.

Hello friends.
Thanks Doc. I think we use the same reducer on our motors , so I will need some advice on the best relation for the pinions.
While we wait Gerald gets back I need to inform got a new problem. I connect the transformer to make a test but won?t give me a lecture. It is like dead. I think will have to take to a technician to check. The other problem is about the 9 volts that I am not receiving from my small transformer. Like I said before, instead of 110 volts we get 120 volts and the transformer gives me 12.9 volts. ┐Will this affect my card? ┐Can I work with that voltage or do I have to take to 9 volts?
Thanks for the advice you guys can give me and hoping Gerald get back with his characteristic enthusiasm.

Hugo,
You are correct, Gerald does use a fan on his.
But I vented mine to the outside. This created my dust problem.
I don't always follow instructions well.
One thing about it, if you follow his plans to the letter, it will work!
