Skip to the beginning of the images gallery Product Description A CNC with both large capacity and a small footprint seems like an impossible dream, but the CarveWright CX makes that dream come true. Instead of requiring a space-hogging bed and gantry to accommodate large workpieces, the CarveWright features a precision conveyor that moves the workpiece itself past the cutting spindle along the long axis. With the included easy-to-use drag-and-drop software, plus the automated setup features built into the CarveWright CX, you can easily create stunning carving projects in very little time. Optional add-on apps can enhance your capabilities, while the CarveWright Pattern Depot gives you access to over 7, patterns and projects to download.

Page 4: Specifications Package Size The operation of any power tool can result in foreign objects being thrown into the eyes, which can result in severe injury. Before beginning tool operation, always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side shields and a full- face shield when needed. Turn the power off and do not leave the tool until it comes to a complete stop.
Make sure the extension cord is in good condition. Use only a cord heavy enough to carry the current the product will draw see under Electrical Connections the proper gauges and lengths to use. Belts in motion could drag a hand into the machine and cause injury. Cross Cut A cutting operation across the grain or width of the workpiece.
Head Screw The threaded shaft on each side of the machine by which the head is raised and lowered when activated by the head crank. Remove the top packaging foam: After opening the shipping box, carefully remove the top molded foam packing from the machine. Located in the top tray are items B through K listed above. Prepare cutting bits: If you have bits that are un-assembled please see the section titled Bit Adapter Assembly on page Make sure the shaft of the bits extend all the way through the bit adapter and always make sure the setscrews are tight and oriented to the flats on the shank.
Page Hardware Features The key features of the CompuCarve multi-purpose tool and their locations are shown in the following illustrations. With the power off, push the memory card gently into the memory card slot until it stops, making sure the label is up. ALL operations require the user to input information at the actual machine location via the keypad as opposed information input and passed through the design software. Page Keypad Data Entl T Keypad Data Entry When a menu option asks for numerical data, such as length or depth dimensions, the keypad is used to enter the data.
When fractional values are involved, data may be entered as either decimals or fractions. Decimals are the simplest. Page Rip Or Cross and output quality, ARNING: From the standpoint it is important of safety, machine to follow all instructions longevity, concerning the proper bit to be used for each built-in function. For approved router bits, visit the CarveWright website. Page Bevel And Miter Cuts If it is desired to square both ends, or joint both sides, of a board, simply reverse the board in the machine and repeat the operation.
If there is a significant crown to the board, place the highest point of the crown under the cutting head. Simply load a board in the typical way and press Key 7 on the keypad or use the arrows from the main menu. DO NOT push the sliding plate against the workpiece with significant force.
Page 23 The clutch is intended to load the board against the traction drive with consistent force. In certain cases the machine can sense if the workpiece is not loaded enough and repeatably display "Please Load Board" on the LCD. Most often this decreased loading is caused by insufficient lubrication Page Workpiece Preparation Workpiece Preparation Before carving can begin a number of menu prompts and machine operations must be navigated.
The machine will ask if the workpiece is to Stay Under Rollers. Keeping the workpiece under the top rollers is a way of avoiding undesirable snipe in the cut and maintaining Page Removal If possible, measure the workpiece that you are going to carve before starting your project layout in the software.
This will help guide your design and prevent unintended scaling issues if the project design is different then the available workpiece. If the inserted workpiece is larger than the project design then the available options are: Keep Original Size, Scale the project to fit the Page Jogging The Cutting Truck Jogging the Cutting Truck As described above, the machine offers several options for positioning carving on the workpiece, one of which is "Jog to Position.
When the project is complete the machine can cut off the extra material if desired. To use this system the bits must first be installed into the bit adapters. To cock the chuck, press all the way up on the chuck release flange See Figure 25 and release. The outer flange will snap up when the chuck is prepared to receive the bit assembly.
With proper care and maintenance it will provide long, reliable service. Dust Removal: The CompuCarve is designed to tolerate considerable amount of carving system dust, but to ensure proper operation it should be kept free of debris as much as possible. Surface rust can cause the bit adapters to stick in the chuck. The machine will not allow deeper operations. Page 35 o Warped, bowed, or cupped pieces should be used only if this condition is minor and if the Board Tracking Sensor can follow it.
A workpiece with slight cups or bows should be inserted curve down. Sears, Roebuck and Co. Checking the Board Sensor: There are several reasons why the machine will prompt the user to "Check the Board Sensor". There is dust obscuring the sensor.
Please see the next section titled "Cleaning of the Board Sensor" Page 38 Troubleshooting the Board Sensor If the board sensor error cannot be resolved by cleaning the sensor as in the above steps you can further troubleshoot the problem. Page 39 Calibrating Machine Offsets: The "Calibrate Offsets" function is a simple procedure to allow the user to fine-tune the CompuCarve machine for improved accuracy.

Replacing the Z motor pack
Age : 47 Location : Deep in the woods Ok, as I stated before I have had the CW for about a year or so and I just got into the double digit hours for carve time. Here is what happened: I purchased the CW and carved 1 test item Something small, no big deal. After playing with the software and getting a design that I really liked, I got everything loaded up into the machine a proceeded to carve. During this carve I received one "Z Axis stall" error message.
