  1. That’s very sad Chris. It’s a very hard disease for all. Sincere condolences to you and your family.
  2. Warmest wishes for your birthday Birgir! Enjoy
  3. For laser etching anodized aluminum, you typically only burn out the dye from the anodizing. Once you burn into the aluminum, it typically turns the aluminum brown. Try using less power to see if you can get it a little whiter, but it looks very good.
  4. Happy Birthday, Justin! Enjoy
  5. Congrats It's been a long while since I've had any lollipops on my endmills. I just looked at some of my typical settings. I'm using 1/8" bits, < .039" (.99mm) depth of cut with a speed of 15" (381mm) / minute for most general cutting. For a 2mm bit with longer cuts I might dial back the depth to .03" (.75mm) or possibly a bit less (not a typical operation for me). I run the spindle at 14400 RPM for most milling operations. Drilling and thread milling is slower (5K - 12K RPM). YMMV I have a mister with air, but I typically only use air. I'm using these carbide single flute upcut bits: Kyocera - 1/8" Single Flute Kyocera - 2mm Single Flute Onsrud - 1/4" Single Flute They say for plastics, but someone had recommended them to me years ago and I haven't had issues since. Good luck!
  6. Thanks everyone. I went out for a nice dinner
  7. Congrats to you and Joanne! Welcome
  8. Agreed The foxalien machine looks decent with linear rails which are needed for rigidity when machining metal. You'll definitely need a real spindle. I noticed they include a 65mm support, but you really should look for one that supports 80mm and an ER16 collet. If you want to get fancy like @naamanf you could get one with an auto tool changer. Have fun!
  9. Looking for some of these parts while I wait on an order... Mini-Universal MATE-N-LOK, Rectangular Power Connectors, Header, Receptacle, Wire-to-Board, 2 Position Part Number: 1-770166-0 Does anybody have some they can spare? Thanks
  10. Agreed on the 32GB of RAM and 6GB of video memory. Also, some of the "more powerful" laptops are quite loud.
  11. I'm not seeing this as obsolete on the OnSemi site (only on Mouser). Am I missing something?
  12. Happy Birthday Rob!
  13. That’s awesome! I did something similar with my grandmother, dad and mom about ten years ago. I watch it all the time These family stories are priceless.
  14. Happy Birthday Chris! Enjoy
  15. Nice work @simmconn The current limiting with Q5 is not fast enough. Put a depletion mode mosfet CCS in front (left) of M6 (Vin). Similar to what Kevin did on the T2. You'll also see this on the Circlotron 900V supply. The golden reference supply is much more robust this way Good luck!
  16. That's awesome! Congrats and enjoy
  17. Happy Birthday Ari! Miss you
  18. Happy Birthday Shelly!
  19. That might be possible, but not optimal for me. I might just have them made.
  20. Thanks. I saw those and they won't do for what I need.
