Who doesn't have a phone that takes pictures nowadays? They give them away for free....

Wow; tight fit.

What have you thought about as far as dust abatement? It's a small space and when that thing gets chooching away I imagine walking around near it will be rather unpleasent.

Also, you gotta look on Craigslist for a small window ac ;)

Don't recommend applying grease to surfaces, they will get all gummed up.

Maybe a very very light film of spray silicon, but only after you prove it is necessary.

No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

larryd

That's the opposite of my manual, go figure.
I do not understand why they say silicone will damage things.

I am sure you will find grease will turn into mud as the cuttings mix with it.

Cleaning after every use will help, but laziness will soon raise its ugly head.

Hmm. I thought you could set the current to steppers lower that what they need.... for testing, at the sacrifice of acceration, top end speed, and holding torque. I have a nema 23 motor that i am planning to use as the z stage in my printer but it wants 2.4amps and the duetWifi only outputs 2.2 amps... i had planned to set the digipot to around 2amps as the z stage only had to move relatively slowly.

Yep, in order to get 5amps out of them you'd have to put the board in the freezer. But, I think there might be something wrong if you cannot move your gantry with no load at lower current....

Nice.

If you blow capacitors, i'd better be loud and with lots of smoke.
If you do it, do it right.
Well done.
Have a look at "blink without delay".
Did you connect the grounds ?

If you are charging big batteries be careful.  I had an 8d on my boat explode...wow.

Qdeathstar

travis, if you need high current power supply's for cheap, look for server power supplies...

12v 100amp supplies can be had on amazon for ~40 bucks.


Did you buy the converter from aliexpress or ebay?  ebay almost always finds in the buys favor in disputes... either way i would open a dispute right away and ONLY CLOSE IT once you are completely satisfied. If they make good on their end you can close the dispute with no harm done..

you want to put the drag chain diagonally from one corner where the wires enter the drag chain. Amazon has got a wide selection, and you can just join the cable togheter if you need longer pieces.

Looking good! I have been debating for a while, but I think if i am going to choose between a CNC machine and a milling machine im going with a milling machine :D Once i get enough money for the CNC after i have the milling machine i can MILL PARTS for the CNC machine, like that mount for instance. Why buy it for $50 when you can make it for a little under $300 :D.

Because, that is definitely out of my budget :D

i don't know, 11k is a lot of money. I also have dreams of buying a Tesla. More of those dreams than cnc mill dreams. Plus, i think it would be a bit of a head ache having to spend a lot of time on the computer every time you wanted to use the mill..
