Any Experienced CNC Millers Out There?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
..Reason I ask is because Ive got an EK Supreme and it has this little plate in there which concentrated the flow of coolant. I would like for someone to make me a couple more of these plates but with different designs in the actual plate like lots of little nozzles, or one big hole and stuff like this to maybe make the EK a little less restrictive and see how it affects my quad core...im willing to pay who ever would like to do this and i think they would have quite a few potential customers out there if this works out..but right now its at just a planning stage. Heres some pictures of the plate and how it fits in

Burn was building a CNC Machine, but I don't know if he ever actually got into making stuff. He had problems with control boards and such.

Yeah if you want a guide to building a CNC or just a crash course in patience check out the "Epic" CNC Work Log.

Yes, that has nothing to do with what you want. I blame it all on Retro.

The plates are just lazer cut sheet metal. The very small slots really arn't an endmill type of show anyhow...maybe a slotting saw.

The better way is to just buy some stainless sheet metal and cut the exterior on a bandsaw and sand, then maybe use a drill press and some different.

You could probably do it yourself with a dremel and some patience. Paying a machinist wouldn't pencil out, most typically charge $50/hr, so you'd spend more on machining than the block is worth.

I used to do this sort of stuff on the side for fun, but after making less than the local paper boy for a few months, it became not so fun anymore and I gave it up.

The good news is...the dremel and a drill press can do amazing things if want them to. You don't need a milling machine for 90% of the projects we come up with.

Yes they are stainless. If you can find some sort of plexiglass or other thin sheet plastic material, that would be alot more friendly for dremel tinkering.

Although stainless should work just fine and those dremel cutting discs should work if you take your time, they just don't like falling into slots so they'll have a tendency to bind and break on you unless you'r cutting a larger slot than the blad thickness.

Zolkorn over on XS got to try EKs full line of nozzle plates, but his results didn't seem to show any performance gains with the different types over stock.

He got the best result with the stock plate:
