That is the first time I have seen that machine. What is its specs?

My build thread

My 8 x RE XXX 18" Subwoofers, IB build
Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

Gorilla have you looked at doing any paraline lense shapes on a CNC?

Just curious because I am possibly wanting to try one of these setups. Would be much more accurate with a CNC but I will have to rough it out for a prototype.

Sorry Dave, I don't really know much about the machine. Its forum member WarrenBerry's friend that works at the place that has the CNC and he cut my sub boxes for me. I'm going to start a speaker build this fall and I'm also going to get him to cut of the speaker cabinets too, I'll use Baltic birch for those though not MDF.

Looks like a 3-axis Thermwood 5'x10'. Doesnt appear to have a tool changer. Nm on the hold down. Small phone pic.1200 ipm rapids. Uses thermoods supercontrol windows based controller (i have visited thermwood a few times). If it is old enough it is running a GE Fanuc controller like mine is.

A similar machine but a bit newer. http://www.cncroutercentral.com/Acrobat-quote/Thermwood-CS-45-510-CNC-Router-001-np.pdf

Well the pictures are not great but i dont see a tool changer draw bar and tools underneath/behind the spindle nor a rotary tool changer to the side of spindle. Those are the two methods thermwood uses for tool changers but i havnt kept up since about 2011 so there could be more options on new machines. the view is a bit blocked so the draw bar method could still be there. Hence doesnt appear. Hard to really see well on a phone

No sir, have not had a look at doing something like that yet. Been on a CNC break for a few weeks as I've been working on the theater room.

+1 definitely a Thermwood and does not appear to have a ATC. A very nice, rigid machine though.

Gorilla how heavy is a 4x8 sheet of BB?

I am trying to see how much heavier my ply will be.

Thanks for that. Marine Ply is about 84lbs per 18mm sheet. So a little heavier but not much. Ricci said it bounces around quite a bit when it gets LOUD. So I thought maybe marine ply would help in keeping it grounded. Not much of a difference though. Although I am going to add an extra layer to the bottom so I can make the "hatch cover," easier.

Looking at your pics of the CNC cuts for Sibuna's 24" cabinet are inspiring.

If heavy is what you're after, you could always go MDF. That stuff is heavy! It makes a bit more of a mess, but it's always nice and flat.

Thanks for the complements on Adam's box - we went through 8-9 designs before we decided on the "right" one to cut.

I will be using the Othorn outside. So I will be using the Marine Ply.

Japan Dave have you bought that place next door yet? Looking forward to you getting your CNC also.
