    Default Blast gates

    Hi Darren,

    Where did you buy you gates from? I have been searching, but no luck yet.

    Default Very nice work

    Very nice work

    Of course you now have to rig up a way to turn the zones on and off from your keyboard.....
    The decimal point seems to be the most important on the z axis... x & y not so much....
    ShopBot... Where even the scraps and things you mess up and throw away are cool....

    Travis, sorry for the delay. I've attached an image showing the valves I used.

    Curtiss, good idea. Too much work for me though. I believe that others (ie: David Buchsbaum) have already done this with air cylinders.

    Cheers,
    Daren

    What vacuum motors did you use. Are they very loud?
    Very nice system! I am in the early stages of planning a vacuum system.
    Noise from a vacuum could cause neighbor issues.

    You can find the info on the vac motors I used in this thread Ken: http://www.talkshopbot.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11813

    They are loud (you can find actual DB ratings from others in this forum, but I don't recall what they are), but they are not as loud as my PC router when it's running. I also work in a garage with neighbors and I'm glad it has 6" thick insulated walls.

    Cheers
