You guys know me for my work with the Shapeoko 3. It's been a good machine but with some caveats. Belt stretch and breaking, Z movement loosing steps, very heavy to move by yourself, and needing a computer to be constantly tethered to use it.
In comes the Onefinity. Created by the people who make the Suck It dust boot, this machines solves all the major faults of the Shapeoko and Xcarve. X, Y, and Z Axis use ball screws standard. Linear Bearings on all axis, no belts anywhere to be found. The controller is so powerful that it runs its own built in software so no computer needs to be connected to it to send or run files. Finally, no computer is needed in the dusty shop.
I'm one of the first 'influencers' to receive this beast so make sure to be following me on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. I'll be sure to post lots of videos about the machine and its capabilities. Check out their announcement video below.
You can find Onefinity CNC at www.onefinitycnc.com. Make sure to follow them on Instgram and Facebook as well @onefinitycnc.
Can't wait to show you what it's all about!
Bear Hunt Design File, FREE Download, for Children during Corona Virus. For Laser, CNC, 3D Printer and Paper Printer.
With all the crazyiness going on in the world during the corona virus, covid-19, I love the fact that people are hiding bears around their homes for children to 'hunt' for during walks and bike rides. I designed a very simple file that can be used on a cnc, laser cutter, 3d printer, vinyl cutter or just a regular everyday home printer that you can print out on paper for kids to color.
Please feel free to use these files as you'd like. Please tag me, email me, or leave a comment on the socials so I can see what you do with the, @myerswoodshop.
We're in this together! Let's bring a smile to the faces of children.
*This is a ZIP file. You will need to 'unzip' the file to access the files*
Ben (Myers Woodshop) and Coty (Arganic Woodwork), two makers from central Arkansas, discuss their recent trip to Workbenchcon 2020, the conference for makers and content creators. They guys break it down by price, food, hotel, sponsorship's, vendors, classes, and meet ups. Ben gives his thoughts as a content creator and Coty as a full time production shop. Should you attend Workbenchcon next year? Listen as the guys discuss their thoughts and find out if you'll see them next year or not. After, we talk to Brian (Fiery Squirrel Art) about his thoughts on if he missed out or he goes in the future.
Also, Ben's wife Molly pulls an epic prank on him during the trip and also starts a book blog at https://www.leggingsandliterature.com/
Ortur 15 watt Laser Master. While this is listed as a 15 watt, that is the total power. The laser actually functions at a 4.5ish watt power, similar to my J Tech 4.2 Watt Laser. This laser is perfect for a beginner and expert. It's open frame allows it to be used almost anywhere! Ortur Laser Master is a portable laser engraving machine, which is easy to install and safe to operate. It has a built-in G-sensor. When the machine tilts, it will automatically stop laser work and protect against laser damage. Support for GRBL open source software for operating fun. It supports dynamic control laser module, and PWM power regulation, low brightness regulation.
It's the first episode of the new year! The guys finally catch up after a nearly 3 month hiatus. They visit with Allen Horn. Allen is a pest control technician (he works with Ben) and a handy man. While Allen isn't full time or part time, he does several jobs throughout the year. From Decks to Fences to a fake baby grand piano, he does it all. He's learned from YouTube and HGTV. Yes, you really can learn from TV.
