    I was thinking that I would use the CW to make the parts to hold the pipe in the jig. It might take a few tries to get it right. Maybe a little sanding or tape.

    (The parts should really be turned on a lathe. Maybe the rotary jig itself could make the parts.)

    I'm going to try your end cap and leave the end cap that I've been using off, do I have to change my settings?

    You need to somehow check how true the plug and/or pipe spins. Maybe look at it during calibration or by running the x drive test with the jig in the machine. Watch and see if it runs true.

    That is a great idea. Just different diameters for different size pvc pipes.

    So what I am thinking, when you do a "eye ball" check you do the settings the same as a regular lithophane, .180 depth and 450 height.

    I done the end caps per your m.p.c.. Dan, that was the problem is the end peices were not centered I checked the thicknes of the pipe at the smallest part and was .213 I set my depth at .14 it turn out great .

    I have been trying to rework my mpc on the rotary base I have the reverse side of the pocket cut at .5 to allow a nut from the light socket to be flush but in doing so I need to go .625 just so the wires do'nt get pinched in the area that I have out lined on the reverse side.

    I do not know about the wire pinch. Make the board thicker or add some rubber feet?? I did not like the center cutout from the front with the pocket behind it. Drills are the answer here.
