My first project from a rotary machine.
« on: March 10, 2018, 01:38:16 AM »
I'm a wood turner first and am excited about what a rotary axis can do for me. This is my first project and one that's been in my mind for a long time. This is a cryptex from the movie, "The Davinci Code" It's the prototype and I'll work on fit and finish before making one for each of the grand kids for Christmas.

Thanks Zax. 7 grand kids to this point but I never liked waiting until the last moment. I will do several and pick out the best ones for gifts.

Thank you! My machine is home made, loosely based on the eggbot design.
