    If you saved the project with it setup for a 1/4" cutter and then use a 1/16" cutter your parts are going to be .094" big per side right? The machine has no way of knowing it needs to be offset in to...

    One of the best videos for breaking down how encoders work and how they can be used to control motors is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIUrnR8bLAI

    If you want to know even more I suggest...

    Thanks for the response. I think the best place for the encoder would be on the lower back roller. That location is after the gear train and fixed. A more accurate solution would be a tape marked...
  5. Board encoder vs X motor encoder. Which is the master and which is the slave?

    I'm not so sure that's a magnetic encoder. It may be optical.

    I realize I'm coming to the party a little late but after viewing the photos I'd say it's an optical encoder. I could not see a part number on the thing to find out what model and who made it? I'd...

    I used that design as a starting point for my dust collector. I used some old plastic fittings from under a kitchen sink water trap as it fit on my shop vac hose. It gets most of the dust but I'd...

    Those of us without tilt (original version of software) are unable to open your file and view it because yours was created with a newer version of the software.

    Saving those type of images as a font would allow you to type Celtic patterns in any software that uses your font library. From there you can scale created patterns up or down just by changing font...

    Oscar, your getting off easy. I made the mistake of carving a more simple spoon design in the meantime and showed it to a group of women at work today. I had not even had the time to sand it down and...

    I like your ideas. Another nice thing about HTML 5 and JavaScript is your not limited by any one platform. It's amazing how powerful and fast programs scripted can be.

    Your experiments reminded me, years ago I played with font generator software. You could create an individual font letter by letter editing pixel by pixel. It looked kind of like the old video game 8...

    The background in that logo is a great example of a tesselation and shows how they can be used in projects. I love the Art Deco style.
