    Fifteen minutes with an assortment of dangerous and noisy tools would do it if you have the middle leg. Otherwise, it's going to take longer.

    The hardtop is for my Ferrari 360 Spider. The plan is to make six units from the mold, see how they go in the market and if there's enough demand, start a production line. I've invested two years of...

    Triangular Structure for Hardtop Mold

    I built this mold support structure out of seven scrap and heavily bent 2x4's and maybe 10' of dowels.

    The triangles are 14" tip to tip, except for the vertices, which are individually sized....

    If you have the standard spindle, the top is 18k. You should be able to get the same effect by slowing down the feeds.

    Lots of seals in those pumps. I suspect one or more seals has given up the ghost and now is leaking prodigiously. I suggest running the pump and with a mechanic stethoscope ($15 on Amazon), listen...

    Faced on both sides with a chainsaw, then loaded with an engine hoist into the machine. I have a 12" Z and with 14" clearance under a 3" flattening end mill.

    I've loaded 800 lb. logs onto my 5x8 SB (with six legs) and seen no detectable deflection. You must have a weak machine.

    Concrete is a miracle material. A product of the gods.

    If you have the Z, you could pour a 3" concrete layer. That would provide the absolute most stable base with zero flex. It would also weigh about a ton (~25 80 lb bags) or so which would also make...

    That may be true but to me, my machine is priceless and has been in use consistently since it was taken out of the crate in 2013.

    I seriously doubt you're going to find a collector of old CNC machines that is willing to pay $10k for an antique.

    I suggest selling it for $2000. You'd be lucky to get that. Maybe you should have...

    High humidity means low static. It's the dry air that is more problematic for static. I suggest it's not a grounding problem.
