Anyone found an alternative for the a_7z41mpsb08m from SDP/SI? (The sleeved bearings for the eustathios carriage).

Guess I'll have to wait till they're back in stock unless there's a drop in replacement out there?

Anyone know an alternate source for the A 7Z 4MF2208 part in the Eustathios BOM?

Its the flanged pillow block for the Z-axis and its currently out of stock at SDP-SI.

I found these, http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/231452345160?lpid=82&chn=ps, but I'm not sure if their mounting holes are the same 38mm apart.

This weekends CNC + LED project. Its Chinese New Year so we cut this fairly traditional pattern into some 12mm plywood. I then thinned it down from the back side till it was thin enough to let the light glow nicely. With a second layer of 12mm plywood to act as a spacer. I then added 140 ws2812 leds to a thinner sheet which I will screw into the back.

Came out lovely, still have a lot of sanding and finishing to do but the effect is awesome.

First successful test of the new version of FLED. Still have some issues to iron out, and then we can seal up the box.

The fan on the 600W power supply makes a serious bit of noise....

High power and high speed is meant to be the solution, but I ran into problems making my map of Black Rock City. The plywood was 7mm (1/4") thick for starters, and the laser cutter was not able to run past about half of its rated power of 60W. I ended up simply marking the plywood and cutting it out using more traditional woodworking tools.

Blinky Chinese Panel!

I found some time today to update the GPIO JSON Server. The code is much more solid now, and it also supports PWM on both the BBB and Raspberry Pi. I have also modified the widget a little to provide a drop down box for pin selection (thus avoiding any confusion about what to name a pin).

Raspberry Pi GPIO requires installation of Pi Blaster.

I also put together this little video to give you a quick run through of setup and usage. In the video I turn on and off my shopvac on Pin 27 and set the brightness of my LEDs using a PWM output pin.

Binaries for Raspberry Pi and BBB are now available in the github repo and from the download link in the GPIO widget.

Last week I showed some early photos of my DW660 dust shoe, the design files are now up on YouMagine. Today I managed to level my spoilboard with almost no MDF dust escaping so I was quite happy with that.

There has been a slight modification since the photos attached to the YouMagine post, I am now using the 'Outer Skirt Spring' so that the foam is on the outside edge of the shoe, this means that it is much harder for the bit to grab the foam and tear it up since the distance is a bit bigger. It does however reduce flow a little, but this hasn't been a problem so far.

Let me know how you get on with it.
This is a 3d printable dust shoe for the DW660 router.
