Re: Router interference\Spindle size for SO3

I fixed the majority of my disconnects with the Dewalt by running a bonding strap from the router mount to the pcb mounts.

Re: Expansion packs announced

First I think we need to make a BIG distinction here before people start pulling the open source card. The extrusion dimensions are PUBLIC afaik.
