Studio camera stand
« on: January 03, 2021, 06:06:32 AM »
Constantly adjusting the tripod is getting old, so I decided to make my version of the Foba studio camera stand.

About half way through the build so far...

Bad luck Mark, that stomach clenching moment isn’t good, those that have ever done anything have these moments. Those that criticise haven’t made anything !

Thanks Andrew. Yeah, poor Maho should have considered this before it moved in with an amatuer :) Luckily it is only a ding, and not a full on crash.

The Maho is only a baby compared with your shed full of gear. I hate to thing of the sort of crashes they could produce.

Another super video Mark.

As Andrew says "Only those who never do anything don't make mistakes!"

The important thing is to learn from your mistakes.

I've not been able to hit the emergency stop button quick enough when I've seen my 6mm end mill at 10,000 rpm heading for the head of socket screw used for clamping at 2,000mm/min. The sparks, smoke and the inevitable cracking sound all happen in the blink of an eye. And my CNC mill is a baby compared with yours.

Keep 'em coming.

Phil.

Thanks Phil. Peter (Edge Precision) posted a comment on my error, and then followed it up by making a video how to avoid this.

Realy helpful procedure...

Having repaired these type of machines for 30 odd years or more Iv'e seen a lot of carnage from just broken tooling and fixtures to repairs going into thousands.
Probably 25% caused by not proving the program on a first off. All it needs is a misplaced dec point.  Yes the first one will take a bit longer but in the long run it can save time and money and a lot of aggro. Some engineering places might take a chance,  but for the small business or hobbyist it can devastating.

 My lathe and mill are both manual and I've dropped a clanger a few times, it's worse if you do it after spending a few hours and cock it up on the last operation! :bang: :doh:

Thanks Dave. It would suck to ruin the Maho, as it is in such nice mechanical condition.

I used it a fair bit again this week...
