Introduction:

Strip Brushes are really useful for aiding in the capture of dust and chips being ejected from the milling process on the CNC machine (the router or spindle cutting process). The dust shoe that can be found on most of our CNC machines uses this strip brush. The strip brush encloses the cutting area and the vacuum creating an area of negative pressure, so the chips or dust will be carried directly to the vacuum end. The strip brush also serves as a wall or barrier that the chips will hit rather than getting ejected into the air. Just make a groove the same width of the rubber side of the brush and glue the brush in.

Step 21: Driver Caps, Resistor Networks and Mosfets
This tutorial is dated, if you are considering a CNC for your personal use, we would highly recommend purchasing a kit that is very stable from our wide range of machines available. The resistors are in, right? Ah, I know, you want to see the complete assembly before you dig in. Ok, on to this part of the assembly. Please don't ask me what Mosfets are, but the word sound cool! I can tell you that they stand for Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor. I have personally read about fifty descriptions of this electronic animal and I still can't figure it out. It doesn't say much for a Berkeley grad! Well, I'm open to some plain English interpretations without the word "drain" in them. Are you still with me?

Torque and Linear Motion Formula
Periodically, I get questions from users of the site regarding torque and how much is required to move certain masses and a recent user emailed me specifically and it gave me the happy motivation to add this page. :) These masses are things like the gantry, or the z-axis assembly with the router mounted moving on the y-axis, or the just the router mount and router within the z-axis assembly. The question is usually in the form of, can my ??? oz-in motors be used on your CNC machine.
