  • Ridgid OSS modification

    I understand that Gene Howe modified his Ridgid OSS to lengthen the spindle. I am hoping that he, or someone else, can provide information such that I can update my machine. The part Gene had machined screws into the standard spindle to extend the length by 2 inches, enabling the use of standard 6 inch drums. The extension requires LH threads. Can someone spec this thread, or even better identify a shop that has made one? Gerry

    Square Corners with V-Bit Profile cut.

    In a FaceBook thread a member asked if there was a simple way to make square outside corners with a V bit running down a profile line.  Every suggestion provided was to make inside and outside vectors and use the V-Carve toolpath. HIs profile pass had already been cut though.  The fluting toolpath, using short vectors in each corner can move from the outside top down to the bottom of the V to sharpen the corners as shown here: Vectors in the corners shown below.

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?
