« Part 1: My first effort with rest machining . . . Part 2 of Legacy Maverick 4x8 series no next part

I bought a 1.5 horsepower DC3 mobile dust collector from Penn State Industries. I spent some time this weekend installing it and venting it to the outside. Here are some pictures of the finished install . . . before I ran the collection line along the back wall.

And since I had some extra casters sitting around and a giant CNC, of course I had to create a rolling base for the 15 gallon dust bin . . .

Designing the rolling base was super quick and easy using Aspire. I grabbed the Oneida logo from the web and did a quick conversion. It isn’t perfect but, hey, it doesn’t show and it gave me the opportunity to carve and work on my skills.

Now, if someone could please just do something about the humidity! For the love of Pete!

Wish that CNC/Aspire combo had the solution to the humidity too!

That’s funny that you covered that logo right up…

I wanted to practice flat area carving in the v-carving mode so I figured this was a great opportunity to give it a go. If I had a 1/8” flat end mill instead of a 1/8” tapered ball nose it would have turned out awesome. So although it is hidden, I got to practice and learned a new technique.

A CNC can be helpful for a lot of things …. making replacement parts for toys the grandkids break is just one of many!

Then, of course, there are things around the house and in the shop too before you finally get to start making projects!
And, your work is just a part or piece of Legacy!
