Re: My pursuit of the perfect Electronics Enclosure

I would go with DIN rail terminal blocks, you can link as many or as little you like and come in different colors/sizes e.g Green/Yellow for earth.

All I can find is huge AC ones. Would you happen to have a link to something more appropriate? (IE, size constrained?)

Re: My pursuit of the perfect Electronics Enclosure

Working on my digital interconnect diagram, and the one thing I'm feeling rather uninspired on is on the Teensy, I need 18 wires tied to the single GND pin. What is the best way to handle that in your opinion?

Re: My pursuit of the perfect Electronics Enclosure

Anybody know where I can get a IP67 rated DB25 passthrough Male to female, with the male side sticking out the panel?

I definitely am, but I don't trust myself not having labeled buttons. 3 hours into a cut...what did right trigger do? *gantry crashes and cuts through th...

Re: My pursuit of the perfect Electronics Enclosure

This enclosure looks amazing ! Any idea of the final cost of all this ? Excluding the 5 axis board ? What kind of spindle will you be using ? In order to support your board I guess you can machine some kind of X shaped non-conductive object. It will be supported on each arm on the screw. You someti...
