Sponge Milling Machine.!!
« on: July 31, 2015, 10:13:37 AM »
Ok well been asked or Challenged to build a sponge Milling machine.!! Not Hot wire type like used for foam but for Milling and shaping machine sponge/foam.

Well easy pezzy I thought, I've built machines before that cut Granite and marble so sponge will be a doodle.!!!!!!!!! . . . . . WRONG.!!!
Never thought such a soft material could be so hard to cut and hold.?

Anyway keep tuned I'm still at experimental stage mostly in CAD but with lots of ripped and torn sponge flying around workshop but when in the build phase I'll post pics and report progress/results or failures which there will be plenty I'm sure.!!

The joys of trying to cut soft materials. I found it hard enough cutting foam for locating tools in boxes, let alone a big lump mounted on a machine!

It'll be interesting to see what you come up with.
