I don't have access to one of these, what could I use instead? Would a spike or a knife or something work?

Hey, what's the brand name of your CNC-router? I'd really like to pick one of these up, but the only ones i've been able to find are as big as a house and cost twice as much. If you wouldn't mind giving me a brand/model name or maybe some tips on finding a smaller, easier to acquire version, I'd be much oblidged.

Aluka: http://www.stepwalk.de/ and the model is GRV-3000.


Mortuus47: Do you have dremel? Many people use that. You can use knife. It works, I've seen it myself but you just have to be careful with those cuts because one slipped cut can ruin your work. hmm... Now that you mentioned it could be interested to use a spike or a nail, not to carve but tap small pits or dents to a plexi/acrylic. Could be easier, at least safer to do this way... maybe I'll try that sometime.

what router would you suggest i use. i will only be using it on plastic (plexi, acrylic, etc.) and i dont want to pay too much for it, since i wont be using for anything else. i pretty much want the cheapest on the market thats decent quality - nothing more than $150 (amenrican). oh, yeah, i almost forgot, i want then to have a web site that i can actually read, unlike the website that put a link up for. :evil:

That machine on the website costs like $2500. They are not cheap so with your current budget you better forget these machines.

i have one small etcher and also another really small etcher. i would rather use the very small one so that i can get more details, but the collet that came with my dremel (the small metal piece that holds the bits) wont hold it - its to big and the etching bit just falls out. it wont even turn. do i need a new collet? :?

With Dremel you should get two different sized "collars" that hold the drill bits... You only got one? Someone with a Dremel should confirm this because I only have Ferm's Dremel copy and I'm sure it had two. :)

Actually you should get three, at least my friend got...

And my Dremel clone came with two...
