    Those turned out great Kyle! Would have loved to have received one of those back in my powerlifting days!

    Nice to see the kids having fun Kyle!
    How much input from you was needed on the "Rapa Nui" head ?
    How much assembly time does the material give you?
    What bit? Nostrils almost look undercut, but know it must just be pic---Was it a tapered BN?
    Someone must be a good teacher

    Just gave him some key words to look up (stl, slicing) and I helped with the toolpath, but I think he would have been fine on his own.
    How much assembly time does the material give you?
    He is using 30 min. Locktite.

    What bit? Nostrils almost look undercut, but know it must just be pic---Was it a tapered BN?
    Rough was a .25" UC and final was .125 TBN with 1 deg of tapper.

    Someone must be a good teacher.
    Good students make easy teaching.

    Hi Kyle,

    It's great to see Kids taking an interest in making physical rather than virtual objects. It looks like you are doing a great job inspiring and teaching them!

    I have a ShopBot Desktop and noticed that you switched your spoil board from the one with the array of dowel holes to one with T-Slots. What prompted the change? Do you like the new version better?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    With the wedge system we had before we have a lot of material popping up. So we went to the t-tracks and things have been a lot better.

    Steve, Make the same type of clamps as Kyle, but use 1/4 24 nylon bolt(or Allen heads) with washers and fasten into your threaded inserts. Wedges and dowels tend to distort or loosen eventually.
