ID:	196466Not Mandolin related yet but hopefully some inlay at some point. Learning this beast and affinity designer. My first attempt at a larger engraving.

    Nice, Shaper Origin. I'm currently rebuilding my CNC for the 5th, and hopefully last time. I got sick of having to work around technology. Technology should work for ME. There may or may not be concrete and permanent modifications to my house involved.

    Here's the moving plate of the Z axis. It's 750mm long.

    After comments here about them in another thread, I thought it was a good way to go to get my feet wet. Not a 3D CNC but functional and if you work on layers you can work some 3D objects. Once it pays for itself, items made with it and sold, I will be more serious about a true 3D CNC or maybe the much less expensive Journeyman from onefinity. Eyeballs on the Yeti CNC at the moment. But that is a ways off.

    I know a man here who uses one to route bodies and pickup cavities in his electric instruments. I haven’t done that yet.

    Yeah, it's a cool toy for sure. I see it as more of a "Super Festool Domino" for joinery at strange angles. And of course for decorative and inlay work, it should be excellent. Try doing some pearl and let us know how it goes, it should be a very logical extension of the traditional process. Just with... more fancy tape involved.

    The Yeti and other Smartbench designs are completely useless for lutherie.

    I don’t cut petal just wood. Maybe someday. I suppose I shouldn’t have posted it. I thought it was interesting what the local electric instrument guy used it for the pickup route truss rod jig building etc. but for you guys doing carved instruments I have no idea.

    I think it'd be excellent for roughing out contours. Not to mention all kinds of jigs and fixtures.

    I hope so but I didn't buy it for that just thought if anyone here was looking they might get some ideas. I need to make items now to sell and make some cash on. I can't make it trying to make instruments. That is a one-off here and there for fun for me. I'll learn the affinity designer program better and hopefully, be able to convert some plans to SVG and try it out for jigs and maybe ruff shaping. Sadly it isn't a current priority. I can make better money, making tables and such.

    You nailed it though when you said it takes a lot of time with the software. If it wasn't for my company turning down my travel requests for work I wouldn't have time to do it.
