    Default Rotary Jig patterns and MPCs

    I will start by posting the LionHead Candle stick holders pattern, for the Rotary jig. I know they are posted elsewhere, but they belong here.

    Thanks

    Here is a Liberty Pattern that I carved a cane with. The picture is of the cane.

    Ed, can you explain how this is made, well what I mean how many times is this indexed to complete the pattern. Since the CW is only a 3 axis machine I take it that this jig must be indexed manually. I'l love to try something like this myself.

    I think it is the pattern that is "extended", not the rotary jig.

    Jerry, The Carvewright machine does "INDEX" the round stock, using my Rotary Jig. Techhnically speaking, it is a 4th axis that will carve 12 inches of a 2" X 14" Dowel.

    I know it's hard to grasp, but, No Longer is the Carvewright Machine limited to 3 axis carving.

    "How many times is this indexed to complete a pattern ?" answer, The same number of times that it would index if it were carving on a flat surface of the same dimensions. (More than I can count)

    Hi CJ,

    The neat thing about Ed's Rotary Jig is it does "everything" automatically (well, you do have to put the jig into the machine). Indexing concerns are really a non-issue...the machine "thinks" you are carving on a flat board! So, the same number of incremental steps (i.e., the stepover) it takes on a flat board, are identical to carving on the round dowel stock with the jig.

    OK.. Here is a concept that 'Should' work with the jig.

    (I am taking this from projects made with my Legacy mill.)

    1- Get two boards that are a true 1" thick X slightly over 2" wide and long enough for the jig minus 2".
    2- Rout a 1" channel lengthwise down the middle of the 1"X2" board 1/2" deep. The goal is a hollow 1" round opening down the length of the stock as if a drill bit drilled out the stock. After gluing, round the stock to 2" (or slightly less) by your choice of tools.
    3- Here's the tricky part: Make two 2" diameter holders that conform with the top and bottom ends of the 'Stock' that goes into the Jig. On one side of each 'Holder' have a 1" diameter protrusion that will go into the glued up stock to hold it steady. Place a small donut shaped piece of two sided tape to hold each end in place.
    4 - Place in jig.
    5 - Design a MPC that cuts slightly more than 1/2" deep. The goal is a nice design outside leading to a hollow middle. (See attached picture). This hollow spiral could be hollow grapevines, etc.
    6- carve the stock.
    7- remove from the jig and remove the 'End' holders and finish as desired. The ends can be re-used for future projects.

    Remember, this is only a idea and I have no hands on with the jig. Let me know what you think as this could lead to several out of the box ideas with this new device.

    Steve, it sounds like it will work. I will test it and post pic's and mpc as soon as I can. (Dang this day job is taking up way too much of my play time)

    Another concept, which would require LHR software support:

    Router bit profiles.. Rope, Barley twists, etc.

    Set a rotation speed, start point, end point, max depth per pass and Y feed speed.

    This would be akin to Vector Graphics on round stock using router bit profiles as the final shape. This would allow fast milling of stock. The hollow candle sticks on my previous post were done that way.

    Just another idea.. What ya think LHR?

    Looking at Ed's site, he may have accomplished some of that prior the his offer (If this cane was accomplished on the CW). http://customcarved.web.officelive.c...eRopeCane.aspx
