Routing Melamine Baord
Aug 01, 2012

A new hackerspace, MAG Laboratory, is getting setting up in Pomona, CA and is working on an epoxy resin casting for their CNC router build. They plan to build the casting mold out of melamine boards.

MAG Laboratory is also having a fund raising raffle to help get their hackerspace up and running.

The culprit behind the broken tap was a simple human error. The wrong tap was used. Instead of using a taper tap, a bottoming tap was used. Originally, drill and tap clearance was an issue because the stock was mounted directly on top of the table. In this second attempt, two Kurt vices were used.

Video of the drilling and tapping operation.
