Revision as of 12:47, 6 October 2013


We have been donated a Isel GFM4433 CNC router/engraver.

Notes

Main Unit

  • ISEL GFM 4433

Driver Board

  • ISEL IFM4

Spindle

  • Ferm FBF-6E -- basically the spindle from a £35 Ferm plunge router.
  • 6mm collet


Mikes random notes

  • more flutes, the stronger the tool (typically 2, 3, or 4), but more likely to clog, which can cause snapping
