    Anyone on here have access to something like this? I've got something very simple I'd like made if possible but just don't have the tools or the connection anymore.

    Thanks!

    We have a CNC plasma here at work. I am in northern Minnesota however and I have never run it so would need to talk to someone to find out what kind of format the file needs to be in for the software.

    If you can do that, that'd help at least. I have a friend that's a machinist and I'm pretty sure he could do the design for me. His shop is just kinda lame when it comes to sneaking in pet projects.

    Basically what I'm trying to do is make a wheel/hub adapter for the kid's 4 wheeler. It's a Raptor 80 and has some stupid 3 bolt hub on the rear, with pretty small wheels. I picked up a cheap set of old Yamaha steel wheels with a little bigger 4 bolt pattern.

    My initial plan was to just redrill them and make it work on the cheap, but if I can get a cheap adapter made I'd feel a little better about it. I'm picturing basically just a ring with 7 holes in it.

    Sure. I will find out what source files the software takes and let you know.

    Its likely going to really depend on the specific type/manufacture of table as to what software they run.

    What I am being told by the ankle grabber ^


    basically, any dxf file, then run it through whatever software you guys are running (assuming enroute or pronest typically), create the gcode, let er' rip

    I have a drafting board, T-square, and compass. I might be able to help.

    We're on a Subaru forum, none of us have ever been cool to anyone outside this group.
