Re: Acme upgrade, Nema 23 Z upgrades and Tiny G installed.

You could try getting hold of Improbable Construction and see if he has any left over parts for them as he was the one selling them. Or he may have a source for parts you need. I know he has the cad file you could use to make the plate out of aluminum. After the Plate all you need is some standoffs,...

Re: HDPE suitable for use as wasteboard?

as far as a substrate I have had very very good results with the Menards HDPE. They sell 1/4" black in the stores for $55. You can special order 3/8" 4'x8' sheets for around $80.

Re: Mini Amp Enclosure

There is elegance in simplicity - nice looking home for the amp. Is it press-fit only? I did not see any form of fastener or adhesive. The front bottom and back are all glued into a dado cut.

I had salvaged some pallet wood and come up with a couple of nice pieces of oak to use. I did my basic layout in autoC...

Re: GoPro External Battery Pack

The more and more I drive in traffic I have also gone to putting my gopro in my truck when I am driving to work also as a Dash cam. I captured a car almost sideswiping a co worker one day on the way home from...

Re: Who has Upgraded their Z Axis?

I can picture how it works, but I disagree that it's an upgrade. :) I do not have a S3 so can not say if I think it would be an upgrade for that. but there looks to be more surface area with the OX wheels than the standard V wheels in the linear actuator. I have seen at least one that has changed o...
