Re: Raspberry Pi g-code senders for Grbl

Will still has some more work to do with cleaning up some bugs that were a consequence of refactoring his code a bit, but knowing him, he'll have a stable version very soon. And when that comes out, I can now fully recommend UGS on an RPi 2! This was from about 2 weeks ago but don't know if this la...

Those 12 M3 SHCS 12MM and M3 nuts

All parts present and accounted for.
When I look through the instructions I cannot find where the M3 12MM screws & nuts go.
Typo or Misso in the instructions?

Re: Catching on the rails?

Could you test if its mechanical or not by disconnecting the motors temporarily i.e. take belt off motor pulley. and then move xyz - if stoppage or snag still happens its a mechanical bearing or roller type issue. If that all runs smooth with no snag, then the issue is further upstream?

Re: SuperPID Wired Wrong-ish & Z axis Interference

Ah got it. So you didn't cover the brass tube, you re-covered the sensor. I've used something like shoo goo. Have you ever tried Bondic? Liquid Plastic that hardens rock hard and very strong after you shine UV light on it in a few seconds. Stuff is amazing. And very permanent. Sandable. Drillable. N...

Re: SuperPID Wired Wrong-ish & Z axis Interference

Thank you so much. I've followed your pics and I'm in good shape. One last question. The brass tube. I got one of those too. It fits perfectly. I think you said you covered your brass tube with heat shrink. Why? Is there an electrical reason or a fit reason for that?

Re: SuperPID Wired Wrong-ish & Z axis Interference

Nice. I can tell almost everything from the great pics. So I have only a few questions. In my router the long black wire coming from the power cord is connected in left terminal of the switch. Yours is on the right terminal. Does it matter? The black wire with the red collar - that's connected right...

SuperPID Wired Wrong-ish & Z axis Interference

I followed the exact instructions to wire the sensor in thru the DWP611 case. Others followed this too. Problem is if you put Improbable Constructs Dust shoe on (there's only one orientation to do it)... The SuperPid sensor comes out the BACK of the router and therefore will interfere with the Z axi...

Re: Limit, E-stop,and other connectors on CM board

This is great advice. Thanks.
What are the normal odds (barring stupidity on my part) of a fire?
Is this a common occurrence? Once every 100 jobs, 50 jobs, 10,000 jobs?
I already have a small fire extinguisher that I will move a lot closer to the SO3.
