Did this video help you?

Matthew Goulart: How can such a thin rail be effective? If your machine for wood only?

James Velasquez: Checked out the info on your site, i think you should put in that blurb from it that states they are basically the same price as the ones you can get on ebay and this is purely a DIY thing not a cost savings thing.

Ivan Schenkenberg: Too much talking....not very usefull information

videovulcan: did he just say heightth?

Jason Sipe: I should've done this for my CNC build!

ThunderDork: doing it all on the cnc router right now with some end mills with a longer cutting length. But i'm thinking that might be the way to go. i'm not sure if it solves all the problems. main issue was that the press was drilling at a non perfect perpendicular angle because it wasn't trammed up and its little bed would bend a bit under pressure. if i had a spindle that ran at slower speed i'd probably just use drill bits in it and forgo everything else.

CintraxBR: I use my cnc router to center/spot drill and after that go drill press. So you dont need to punch each position manually.

aasspirin: Hi Chris, please tell me what the diameter of the bearings. Thank you.

ThunderDork: The DXF stuff is 2d. If you want 3d models you need the IGES or STEP files. Even has a Sketchup version but that won't have true curves.

ThunderDork: on my site there is a link to the files on cncrouterparts site. its their design.

ThunderDork: I put a ton more info on my site about this kind of stuff and the process I took creating them step by step. It takes about 2 hours to do the machining, drilling and tapping per bearing and costs about $12 in raw materials.

Mark McDowell: How much do money do u have in these 4 bearings? How long did it take to complete these four

tackyman2011: 19:09 Good grief, I had this kit as a kid! The head is still in my spares box. Dying to attend Wonderfest some day.
Schnippledipple: Oh gawd the nostalgia. I think I never really finished the first game though, because it was too hard for me.
Although I did play the second game really really often when my friend came over to visit me, since it had a coop mode.

Lilbruddah: where can i buy this game ???
KCStrainiac: Nice! But you need to get your time zone straight. 9:31 would be Central Time and Pacific would be 7:31
Alex Abbasi: I've been there
Lee Jones: How much you want for
davelabine1: that is a sailboat right ?
