Another 2x2

Got mine today, thanks Torchmate! Got it all set up and monkeyed a sharpie to it to test it out. Should have it cutting next week sometime. Table build starts tomorrow!

Nice!! I've actually considered clamping a sharpie into the plate marker holder to do some layout where I didn't want to actually engrave the surface.

The sharpie worked pretty good. Ziptied a couple of pencils to it to make it longer then ziptied those to the torchholder and off we went. Just wanted to see it in action and it worked good. I can see using a marker down the road for some of the artsy stuff my wife likes. Making picture borders and frame stuff.

at least i'm not the only one that couldn't wait and had to hook the sharpie up. i ended up masking tape the sharpie to the torch holder and took the lid to the box that it came in to draw on

CNC Pen

I didn't do that with my 2X2 because it was so easy to set up and start cutting, but I put a pen on my mill as soon as I finished converting it to CNC a few years back - here's the video. The pen was little wobbly but it made a nice spiral.
