    A really good tape dispenser needs to be heavy enough to pull the tape out without having to hold the dispenser with your other hand.

    In general, you'll get better results on CNC machines with climb milling, as much as it hurts my brain coming from a conventional machine background.

    Very nice finished product but I agree that relying heavily on CNC really means it is not much better than a shop bought item. BTW Why do our colonial cousins refer to the tape as "Gaff" tape? Again, nice, neat finished product, with a well presented video.

    Wanna rebuild it at your own? No Problem just use your cnc Router and 3d Printer everyone should have one by now

    I think you need more weight and or a bigger base so you can dispense tape one handec.

    Weird hearing gaffer tape called gaff tape. I think a hacksaw blade would have worked better, holder needs weight, profile for pivot too high and not long enough, not well designed for manufacture… But it looks nice…

    In the history of pointless things this is right up there. Gaffa tape; easy to find the end, easy to tear by hand, leaves cutting edges covered in residue.

    Dumb peopel complies about using CNC (wich is a tool !).
    For MAKE, waste of wood and time making that big pocket, you should use more layeres

    All CNC and 3d print… I fail to see the woodworking abilities in that. It could be much more interested and not that much complicated to do it by hand.

    Nice build. I think I'd be easier to use if you weighed it. A pocket at the bottom with buck shot or something would work. Also if you honed the cutting edge it would cut straight. Great idea though.

    When you're using the file on stock spinning in the drill press, only use it on the right side. If you use the file on the left side, the file is trying to cut "with the grain," and it won't cut. (Unless you reverse the spindle.)

    You should’ve used a laser cutter and made it out of acrylic layers. Unsubscribe, lol.
    A lot of people butthurt that this wasn’t made with handtools only. Who cares how its made, the concept is the important part. Some people aren’t comfortable using hand tools and would prefer to print or cnc cut it. Or they dont have the time but know how to make it using the methods they have.

    Looks great. Do you find it sliding around much due to being light? Or is it always used two handed?

    Always climb mill my friend. Already with metal.

    I like you, I do not like CNC routers and 3D printer. The channel is called make, not print.

    Definitely worth your time to get confident changing bits. No point running that pocket with an 1/8" bit. Should only take a minute to change bits and re-zero Z. Big pocket first then roller pocket then pins (which I don't think we're really necessary, like you said).

    Why not make it out of 6 layers, then you would not have to hollow out such a large area with the CNC? Make two maple spacers and thinner sides. Less wasted wood too.
