I have you all trumped on the cold garage tongue.gif - I'm in Colorado at 10,000ft in an area know for it's high wind. The out building has heat, but it's expensive so I've winterized it and I don't leave the heat on. It was -35 here a few weeks back with 30-40mph gusts.

Ouch! I guess I will quit whining about the cold! eek.gif

That is a bummer about the drivers. I sure they hope do not turn into vaporware. I really want a couple!

I'm not sure why you think they are vaporware, he's sold hundreds of them. I just picked one up 2 weeks ago from him. He ran out of cones for the UXL and is waiting for a new shipment. Nothing to worry about, he's got all the other parts.

Mark said they will be here in OZ around the end of April so that should mean closer to April 1st for USA. But I figure I will give him until July to get upset. Kind of like my 21's. biggrin.gif Either way I dont mind waiting.

I don't think they are, I just don't want them to become vaporware. That has happened several times with drivers from various companies. They are awaiting parts, etc then the company goes under or that driver never gets made again, etc.

No worries, you'll be good to go as soon as he gets the cones. He's not going anywhere.

I asked some DIY guys here who have CNC's and they said if I had a DXF file then the could get the Gcode from that and be able to cut whatever I needed. After chatting with these guys it makes me wonder why didnt I build a CNC back in the day. As much money as I have spent building and still not having the kind of look I was wanting it seems cnc would have helped me a lot.

Either way I dont know what this file type comes from so I thought i would ask you Ricci.
post #189 of 758
There is a DXF in the current plans. It is just a common CAD file. IF you don't have it let me know.

There sure is! I am just hoping I can use it!

How's it looking, Ricci?

post #192 of 758
Awesome man! Glad to see you got 'er started!
I am jealous and want to build so badly!
post #193 of 758
Things being done, sweet!!! What would be really sweet, is a cutout piece of thin cardboard that you can overlay onto your wood and trace out all the measurements, so you can quickly trace where you wood should go on your big flat pieces. that would save quite a bit of time if someone was to build multiples and could just trace all the needed measurements. Well, at least thats what I told the guy who is planning on building mine to do and he though it was a great idea lol!

Thanks for the offer, but that's a little to far to drive. Can you just point it out a north facing window and turn it up lol. I needs to get me one of those...

I dont have the DXF file for the Gjallerhorn. Just the PDF..

I could cut some thin rollable plastic on the cnc and stuff it in a mailing tube.

Wow, that would be awesome!

Alright, time to slowly put these two together...



I think completing both at same pace will be easier than completely finishing one and then starting the other.

Thats a very good idea. It would be worth the money to save in the time for lots of people.

I was thinking that exact thing as I looked at those pics, "wish I had a template"....

Very. I have cut stencils before on the CNC...dont see how this would be any different. The plastic is 0.02" inches thick and comes 48x96. I have used it for stenciling in the past. From what I recall it was pretty cheap too. Worst case, for some of the bigger dimensioned pieces would be that I have to cut everything in two, and then you would have to tape the stencil together on your end. What do you think? Open to suggestions.

Are you going to use a router to rebate the edges or how do you get the 1/2"-3/4" cut back on the edge of the external pieces? gjallerhorn print-5.jpg 240k .jpg file

Ricci hope your ok with me posting this as an example. I am wondering how to do the edges such as the top piece and other pieces. I was thinking a rebate router bit. There are other edge rebate sizes but this is just what I was thinking of doing and then buying other rebates for other sizes. The first angle I was just going to use a v cut router bit that I have already.

Do you have a dado and a table saw? That would make the rabbets on the edges a piece of cake. Else, you can find rabbeting router bits such as what you are thinking. The table saw will give you the most flexibility.

It would definitely be a time saver. Especially if it is the type of plastic sheet that lays nice an flat.
I am game, let me know how much money is involved.

I bought one of those rabbeting bits a few days ago ftom MLCS, SKU # 8666

Finding a bit with a cut depth of 3/4" wasn't the easiest. Not something you can pick up at HD.

I got a nice set of rabbets from Freud that has 10 removable bearings and 1/8 to 1.5" bits. It was around $200 on ebay. Smoking deal and has come in extremely handy!! Though I've taken it out of the box, I'll see if i can find the kit number for anyone interested.
post #207 of 758
You don't have to do the dado's. you can skip all of that complexity and use butt joints. The dado's are really for cnc and ease of assembly and the plans are intended to show what final form the cab should be. Whoever is building it should do so in a manner that fits their tools and capabilities.

Yep, i'm using pocket screws (Kreg system) and butt joints. That and a large quantity of PL400, of course!

That was the route I was looking at doing..
post #210 of 758
Yes, the Kreg system is the bomb!
It makes assembly so much easier and quicker having things fastened down while the adhesive dries.
