Re: SO3 Enclosure

Overall Dimensions: 56"h x 33"w x 32"d Enclosure Itself (Top Half): 21"h x 33"w x 32"d You could easily shave a few inches off the height and an inch or 2 off the depth but I wanted plenty of room to move around in there. I just ordered the Suckit Dust Boot so I will be adding that shortly and runni...

Re: SO3 Enclosure

Thank you. I didn't make a drawing of this. I had a basic idea of what I wanted and just figured out the dimensions as I went. I will take some measurements and post them in the next day or two.

Re: SO3 Enclosure

So that is coming. I built a cabinet on the bottom that houses a shop vac and at some point I just need to drill the holes to run the hose. That dust shoe I have doesn't work very well so for now I just open the door and vacuum out the debris periodically. I'm thinking about a getting "Suck-it" dust...

SO3 Enclosure

I built this awhile back and put it on Reddit but it never made it to the forum. It came out great and knocked the sound down significantly (about 20db). You can easily hold a conversation in the garage now while roughing material.

Re: Grasping WCS

I am okay with the default homing position. I just wish the machine would automatically return to home for a tool change rather than just lifting off the workpiece by the designated height. Depending on the size of the workpiece it makes it difficult to change bits...my solution I guess is to run di...

Grasping WCS

I'm having a hard time getting my head around setting up WCS. I have limit switches and use them to home the machine but i start getting lost after that. I would like to be able to set the front left corner as a starting point and type a command to send the machine there without having to manually d...

Re: LEDs under the X-axis

Hmm, not sure. Verify that your LED's are 12v? Make sure you are using the fan pins?

Re: LEDs under the X-axis

Kbilly, It is very easy. Get a strip of 12v LEDs like the ones in the link below. Wipe the bottom of the X-axis with some alcohol to clean it and stick the LEDs to it using the adhesive backing. I cut the wire from the fan provided and soldered it onto the LED strip. Then plug it back into the fan p...
