Tell us about yourself!
I had to take a break from this project for real life events, but, want to get started again. So, all of my parts are cut out and everything tangible is now in my possession - about $850 with beefed up motors... Where I'm struggling is how to line up holes for the cross dowels between the ribs and the cutting deck. I can't get the holes perfect. Any advice would be appreciated. I even bought a woodpeckers cross dowel jig - just don't know how to use it yet.
Hi again Spiky. Do you still physically posses this CNC? If so, can you please take additional pictures? It would be very helpful!
Thanks for the help Spiky. I'm having a hard time getting all of the cross cut dowels perfectly lined up. If you have any tips, please feel free to share.In regard to your 'upgrade', would you mind taking a picture of yours installed? It was a tough piece to get perfectly cut, and I'm not sure where / how it is installed.Servo motors are way to expensive for me, so, I'm sticking with the NEMA 23 stepper motors!
In regards to the holes shown on the top of the bed, are ALL of those holes for cross-cut dowels? I believe so, but, just want some verification before drilling them out.
Hi Spiky!I've got all of my MDF cutouts completed! I hope to have the whole thing assembled and tested within 2/3 weeks. I too have ordered the NEMA 23 motors. Do you have any information you can share about how you wired this? I'm comfortable building, but, am concerned about my lack of experience when it comes to wiring everything together? Is there a less expensive option of the GECKO controller? If you had to do everything all over, are there any changes that you would make knowing what you know now? I'm taking lots of pictures as I go!
Can anyone please verify the diameter of the lead screws called for in 36" , 24" , 9"?
