Beer Tap Handle (4th axis)

Made a replacement Beer Tap Handle.
Now I just need to print a guide, for drilling a precise axial hole in the end.

Took 30min, OpenScad, Fusion, Kress1050.

So what I am hearing is you need me to come over and help you with your keg?

I mean CAD…hahahah

That 4th axis is lovely in its simplicity.

If/when you get some free time could you make a very clear step by step post with lots of pics and screen shots on how to best setup and use that?

I would love to add it to the How-to section and feature it like I did with Jason’s mirrors (https://www.v1engineering.com/laser-engraving-mirrors/). You will probably get swamped with questions, so it is kind of best to try and answer them before they happen. Or I could make you an author and you could make a article, which ever way you think would be easier…if you get some time. If not I can ask the questions and do the write up.

I love it and I think a lot of people would/should see it.

Hi,

Sure, I’ll make a write up when I get some spare time : )

Got the handle on, just need a bit of post processing, it is straight off the CNC.
