First time cutting wood. 1/4" walnut hobby board in the process of becoming the base for an acrylic edge-lit lamp. Just starting on the contour pass in this shot

Happy Ending: when your date whispers into your ear that they want to solder boards with you @limo__mouse

Scope showed up today! Bought it for $40 on ebay. It even works!

Next up is a JTAG half-pitch 10-pin to standard pitch 5-pin adapter so I don't have to include a JTAG header on every board I cut, I can just break out the SWD pins to a standard header

Hell yeah! Got my first perfect board flip! Board flip jig works! Holes and traces cut on bottom first, then traces and outline cut on top. Alignment between top op and bottom op is perfect to within 25 microns, or about the width of three red blood cells. No offsets in software needed! 
Board is a SAMD21E breakout. Gonna solder it together and mess with it in arduino. It's a testbed for HID devices based on SAMD chips. #bantamtools #electronics #cncmachining

To the owner of these 30 weird dogs: we found them behind this shitty building, please come get them

Fun fact: Tap Plastics sells ends and pieces for $1/lb. And by ends and pieces, I mean square foot sized acrylic sheets in 1/8" - 1/2". Too bad no polycarb

Close-up of latest attempt at double-sided machining. Nut pocket and standoff pocket on opposite faces of pi zero case (next to cutout for gpio header). Alignment is within a 3-4 thou.  I think I can get it down to just 1. #bantamtools

Pi Macaron. Simple pi zero case milled out of 1/8" polycarb. Did this mainly to test a method of flipping double-sided parts. A partial success, I miscalculated and jacked up the registration
