Upgrading my Y Axis to 1000mm...

What spindle do you have? I get quite a bit of deflection with my Makita even with 2 20x1000 extrusions under y-axis makerslide. Guess it depends on your bed. Definitely recommend mid span supports. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/05/16/bbfa3acd5082d29a62d80b0e79be8683.jpg Sent from my iPhone usin...

Re: Routing Foam?

https://vimeo.com/127438403 I've been using my shapeoko 2 to cut designs in foam. Not sure how it relates to your material but this is a polyurethane type foam at about 18lb density. I've noticed that 2 flute straight bits give me the cleanest cut. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/05/10/aef6f66067...

Even though I don't have enough 8020 extrusions to fill the entire bed and need to extend the wires from the stepper motors I can already utilize more than the stoc...

Re: Installing toggle switch between gShield and wall plug

I've got a power strip that I run my laptop, Makita and shapeoko off of. The power button is small and its mounted underneath my workbench. Could I open it up and wire in an e-stop switch to a more convenient location?

Re: Any interesting power supply options?

Maybe a stupid question but what is the advantage of the 5v 'always on? I was looking at one of those 24v enclosed PSUs but I know I have both of these lying around somewhere
