Thread: Introduce Yourself

  1. Default new to forum

    Hi
    I was given a Sears Compucarve machine a few years ago but I could never get it to work properly. The machine has been sitting in the garage gathering dust while I have had to devote time to the necessary things in life. I now have a project which would be nice to use the Compucarve as it would save me days of time. Is there anyone in the San Francisco bay area that can show me how to get the machine to do what I need? Can pay for your time or trade for welding services.

    thanks
    Colin

    Colin,

    Welcome to the CW forum. Getting the machine to do what you want starts with having the correct/proper design. Have you taken the time to view and read any of the software tutorials and learning guide?

    What issues were you having with the machine?

    I tried getting on that site last night, as I'm on night shift at the moment, however, I didn't see where I could specify "J" material? I saw the Aluminum Oxide Coat W-15" x L-13" Grit-120 Dry, but not the "J" material. They were about 6 or 7 dollars which is not bad at all - if I'm looking at the right ones. Haha. I appreciate the link, for sure and will look into getting new ones as mine is busted as stated before, but hopefully I can get back up and running soon. Thank you!

    Thanks. Yes, I have tried to make some designs and look at tutorials on how to puss or invert them to have a different effect. I need to refresh on some of the stuff though, for sure. I think I actually bought some patterns as well, but more would always be great, I appreciate it.

    Oh, I don't mind the sawdust at all. Haha.

    Thanks!!

    I am not sure what the J material is either, this is just info I copied from someone who order them. Important part is the aluminum oxide open coat and the sizes.

    Brad.rentz,
    if you call the number listed in the posted add and tell them the belts are for a Carvewright, they’ll know which ones you need. I ordered mine a week ago Wed. And they are arriving today. 4 belts were $21.96 including the $5.00 shipping.
