 email sent has the Rhino part file Sherwood developed. A couple things I noticed:
  1. Notes are include, LOTS of GOOD info from Tim and Kes
  2. No handle is shown
  3. No hole for handle is present - This will be added.
  4. Bearing Dia. is .865 in black and 1" brass hole is in green. We are going with just bearings no brass sleeve as defined in magazine.

We found a problem reading DXF files from MasterCam into Vetric Cut2D. It hangs Cut2D up. We generated DXF files in rhino and opened them into Cut2D and it works correctly.

New files on google drive for you all. I stop for CHS and SHS files, Also sent you a calendar. JN

Check out the Bongo 2 animation Scott Davidson created. Add some photos of your gear parts being manufactured.

You might also try saving them in an older version of DXF from Mastercam.  When you select the DXF file, also select the option tab to the right of the file name option and pick an older format, say 2000.

Talked with John tonight and I mentioned it's about as quiet as last years Buck season.  Hope everything is going ok.  If not, shout out here and let us know if you need any help.

Can everyone please post by tomorrow (on this site) what your current status is?  This should include if you have produced your test parts, shipped date, or projected completion/ shipping dates. Include a picture if you can.  This information will give everyone a sense of where we are at and will give John and I an idea of whether our timeline is realistic or not.  This large group work is new for me and I assume that is the case for most of us. 

Century will post on here tomorrow by 3.  I need to check with my co worker and my student who runs the parts to get an accurate report for all.  I know that if our parts are not ready yet, they will be by Monday afternoon.

Thanks,

Tim

 

Sitka has cut their assigned gear using the laser out of 1/2" clear acrylic. It took several passes resulting in some less than perfect teeth. I think that it will be ok. the bearings fit.
