This unique collet reducer lets you to use the wide array of proprietary Click-N-Carve CNC Router Bits with the larger CNC Shark line of routers, as well as any other CNC router or handheld router with a 1/4" collet. It reduces the collet opening from 1/4" to 4mm to accept the smaller Click-N-Carve shank. The Click-N-Carve selection offers many unique router bits, including Ball Nose Bits, End Mill Bits, Conical Ball Bits, and Half-Conical Bits for CNC Carving Machines.Technical Details:Collet reduces your standard 1/4" collet to a 4mm collet, which accepts the unique Click-N-Carve router bit shanks.Compression slots in collet reducer allow for tight fit when the collet is tightened.
The Grr-Ripper Gravity Heel Kit provides a positive hook that grips the end of your board, ideal when you need additional support for feeding hard or heavy stock through your table saw, bandsaw or router table. The heel drops down automatically, aided only by gravity, and retracts when placed in the middle of the board. This means there's no need to remove it or adjust it when it's not needed. The Gravity Heel can also be adjusted laterally to provide backup support when you wish to prevent grain blowout of any kind. Simply saw through the heel to provide zero-clearance support. Five sacrificial heels are included, plus two heel spacers and mounting hardware. Fully adjustable for stock thicknesses from 0-1''Fits all existing Grr-Ripper push blocksEasy to use with two push blocks and the leapfrog method; heels grab the tail end of your board and automatically retract mid-boardIncreases control and stability when feeding long or short stock-provides extra support to help feed stock and prevent blow out
PhotoVCarve allows CNC machines to carve and engrave photographic images in a way that used to only be possible with expensive laser marking systems. The software converts photographs and images into high-quality toolpaths for virtually all CNC machines, using lines and grooves that vary in width and depth to represent the detail in an image. PhotoVCarve is also perfect for machining 3D Lithophanes directly from photographs for lasting gifts, keepsakes and mementos. Whether you're a hobbyist or a professional engraver, you'll enjoy the simplicity, utility and quick results of PhotoVCarve. V-Groove Machining: Uses grooves of varying width and depth to represent detail. Automatically calculates toolpaths based on cutter selected and maximum depth of groove. Quality of finished result is dependant upon a high level of contrast between material surface and machined grooves.3D Lithophane Machining: Lithophanes are 3D photographs that when viewed in normal lighting look rather flat, but when back lit transform into stunning 3D pictures with depth and detail that cannot be seen in a 2D photograph.3D Grayscale Machining: PhotoVCarve automatically converts a grayscale image into a 3D height map that can then be carved.
