Re: Limit Switch Wiring?

Re: PlexiGlass is not for beginners :)

Take a look at the acryl/proacryl ones from sorotec. It's expensive but the ones I've bought from them are very high quality compared to the ones from ebay, and totally worth it in my opinion. Probably the best "upgrade" I ever did was buying a few quality bits like these. I still use the cheaper on...

Re: PlexiGlass is not for beginners :)

Biltema plexiglass? If so, it's extruded plexiglass. For this stuff it's important to use a end mill with just one flue and go relatively fast. I wrote some settings for the wiki a long time a go when I still used a dremel. http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Materials#Extruded_plexiglass It's pe...

Re: My new Shapeoko 3 is it just me?

Haha yeah, I've had my fair share of frustration because of Github. It's terrible for normal users.
