The CNC Shark HD3 includes the NEW Virtual Zero software. This new and improved software ''maps'' the surface of your table or workpiece and uses the map as a dynamic reference point. This eliminates problems caused by warped or bowed workpieces and small inconsistencies in the table. It also allows you to carve and machine stock that is intentionally convex to begin with. A new electronics package expands the capabilities of the CNC Shark and allows attachments like a pendant control system.The CNC Shark HD3 also features a new gantry reinforced with plate aluminum and a sturdy interlocking table that is much heavier than prior models for more accuracy and less flex. It has anti-backlash, wear-compensated leadscrews on all axes and is built to handle larger routers such as the Porter Cable 890 series, Bosch 1617 series or large water-cooled spindles. To accommodate the greater torque levels, it features adjustable bearings to give more stability during heavy cutting. Perfect for carving and machining a large variety of projects made from wood, soft metals or plastics. Simply supply a PC computer with USB 2.0 port and any of the routers listed below, connect the USB cable to the controller box and load the software.Includes VCarve 8 Desktop, Vector Art 3D Sampler Pack and CNC Shark control software with Virtual Zero technology.Fully compatible with the following routers (sold separately): Bosch 1617 and 1618 Porter Cable 890 Series Porter Cable 690 Series (6902VS must be manually started) DeWalt 610, 616, 618FREE CNC Project Plans from Woodworker's Journal: Butler's Tray Weather Station Cribbage Board Workshop Jig Modern Table Outlet Cover Luggage Tags Chinese Checkerboard Puzzle TrayVisit the CNC Shark Forum CNCSharkTalk.com, a website presented by Rockler where CNC Shark users can chat together, share files, watch how-to videos, ask questions, learn from each other and even show off CNC Shark projects.
Your shop may look clean, but how clean is the air? The PM1200 Air Filtration System traps up to 99% of all 5-micron particles and 85% of all 1-micron particles for a healthier work environment. Three blower speeds modify air flow. The unit can be operated either at the cabinet or with the remote transmitter, which uses radio frequency, eliminating the need for line-of-sight operation. The timer has nine settings, allowing continuous operation for up to 9 hours while you're away, and will shut off at the end of that period. The filter guards can be removed and installed without tools, for instant filter access.Features:Two-filter system traps particles as small as 1 micronRemote control operates on radio frequency for wider range of effectivenessTimer has nine settings, for up to nine hours of continuous operationInner filter has fine mesh pockets for high efficiency, can be blown cleanElectrostatic outer filter is disposableDiffusion filter disperses exhausted airFour eye bolts allow suspension from shop ceilingIndicator lights up after 200 hours to remind user to replace filtersThree blower speeds to modify air flowFilter guards install and remove easily without tools for quick access to filtersTwo carry handles for portabilityFully enclosed motor has overload protection for long service life.
CNC machined from solid 6061 aircraft aluminum for maximum precision and minimum weight, these tenon cutters feature dual blades made of hardened steel and a self centering design to produce perfectly shaped radius shoulder tenons. Dual blades not only cut twice as fast, but also generate less heat for long-lasting service.
Some of our most dedicated CNC users are luthiers-guitar, mandolin and violin makers-or woodworkers with limited shop space who don't need or even want a full-sized bed on their CNC machines. That's why we've brought in the CNC Shark SlimLine, featuring all of the digital precision of our other machines, but with a 18'' x 48'' bed that is tailored for small shops and smaller scale work like luthiery. Create graceful carvings, corbels and signs. Make your own arch-top guitars, customized electric guitar bodies complete with cut-outs for pickups and electronics, as well as precisely arched tops and plates for mandolins and violins. You can even integrate ornate carvings into your electric guitars. The creative potential of the SlimLine is virtually limitless.
