Clear Acrylic Water Tank made for the CNC, on the CNC. (Liquid cooled Router Spindle pump reservoir) LIT UP and FINISHED Page 2


Recommended Posts

My brand new CNC costs as much as a family car. It has a liquid cooled spindle and with a fully submersed water pump. It does not come with any sort of tank. They suggest using a bucket. Which i did. I used one of my many "Homer" buckets i have laying around the shop to get me by. But you KNOW i can't roll like that. I have a bunch of scrap Acrylic and know i need to get my practice on. What better to practice on than a little tank :D I made a few small boxes out of 1/4" acrylic the other day and they were water tight. So i have no doubt this one will be too. It is 3/8".


Oh, and the logo....my 1/4" bit is too big to put the word "Industrial" under the Baileigh emblem. So i switched it up to use less letters which let me make the letters i had large enough to take the bit. Hey, it's fully appropriate...because this thing IS UNREAL! I love it!

In case you are wondering why there is screws holding this down when i have a very powerful vacuum (hold down) table, it is because i haven't made my pull-through spoil board yet. I will probably do it next week. It is suggested to use lightweight MDF and skim the top and bottom with a fly-cut bit.

Anyhow, this particular piece below, is a piece that was notched in the first side and then flipped over for the engraving. Hence even more screws to hold it in place. Worked GREAT! :D

Man buys tool.

Uses tool to pimp tool.

Like how for almost every 3D printer on the market there are improvements you can make with printed parts....what a cool time to be alive

No doubt. Trips me out, to think whats going to be happening in 25-50 years.

i was just thinking the same thing...it is a GREAT time to be alive. But i wonder if our great great grandfathers thought the same thing when like someone invented the radio....or a car for that matter. Although shitty by today's standards, how fucking awesome would it have felt to get in a car and drive 15mph when you have been walking or riding a mule. :D And you can take your family with you. How about the first people that got to see a television.......like OMG what a great time to be alive! :D

i am just glad we are having fun i just wonder what will be left for our great grandson's.
