Grbl 1.1 Config Documentation

Hey chamnit, I am on the G1.1 page (the new one) and am in the configuration area near the bottom. There's a paragraph which is not jiving with what I understand the settings to be and was wondering, am I missing something, or is this bad info? "Tweak your $11x acceleration and $12x max rate setting...

Re: S03 Fire

Now THAT was scary. So many examples of what not to do. But I couldn't stop watching. I also thought it was a kinda funny how fast the video stopped right after the machine was stopped.

Re: LEGO Ninjago LED Lamp

While the cutout is really very cool, I wanna know where I can get a magic probe like that. :D

I am going to show this to my son tonight. The danger is that he'll want one too.

Detensioning - For times when not in use?

Hey all, It's been a while since I have been on here. Unfortunately I can't play with my machine for a while which is sad, but ultimately it's for a good reason. I want to make sure that I am treating it right. Should I loosen the belts while it is not in use? Also, I remember that there was an issu...

Re: What happens when the laptop goes to sleep?

Yeah, sleep killed a couple hour aluminum job once. Once it was back on, I found that it had lost it's zero, and the piece was not recoverable. I have a small pile of things that didn't end well, and that was added to it. I tried, but getting a machine re-aligned without any sort of homing is not go...

Re: DSLR Camera Slider

WoW. Thanks. At the moment, there are no plans for the zoom.That's the whole point of the slider. It can be used as a dolly, or pushes. I am however, going to be doing a focus via servo, but that is a few steps away. That is going to involve some half inch aluminum which will be milled, cut, then dr...

Re: DSLR Camera Slider

So... 2 little hiccups along the way... (well there were more, but I will mention these now). I mentioned the bearings I found at ServoCity . They can be found here and the item number is #535051. They are a little expensive (at least they are to me) when you consider that you need 4 of them for wha...

Re: DSLR Camera Slider

Thanks Rob!!! Hans, it's been frustrating fun. (Is that even a real thing?) So... What does one do when the rest of the family is away? Have insane parties? Spin from the celling fan till you pass out? Join a biker gang? No! You drive yourself batty trying to build crazy crap. I have been really pus...
