Missing/snapped Kinetic NC bits need to be reported and replaced #1342
Several 3mm cutters for aluminium have either been broken and not replaced, or disappeared altogether.
This is very disruptive for the community and we may end up with no tools been available for sharing (so everyone will have to Bring Their Own Cutters™).
Anybody using the CNC machine is responsible for leaving it in good working state for the next user once they have finished with it. This involves replacing bits which snap during use and letting everybody else know that a tool is no longer available.
Please write a post in somebody-should or in the tracker to get assistance if this happens to you.
@RussCoty has been using the CNC heavily for his latest project. I don't know if the 3mm cutters for aluminium were ever available for the community or if they were his. If they were they would have been provided by @magman2112 most likely. Maybe @DoESsean should add basic cutters to the list of consumables that need restocking?
There are no reports of broken and missing cutters. There should be 3 (2 that I personally know of) available.
At the moment there is one half.
If they are so easily worn out then yes, we should consider them consumable and order them in bulk. @RussCoty mentioned a discount for bulk orders from Cutwel.
