Re: Broke a Belt (It was bound to happen)

I looked all over the SDP/SI website and couldn't find the GT2 parts. Strange. I don't know what I was doing wrong. Thanks for the link. I found them now. One of the first things you do is select inches/metric if you select inches you will never see the metric stuff, I think they do have the inch m...

Re: Dremel dust collection using threaded part

Could you just use the current plastic nut and glue that into what ever sort of dust collector shoe you want?

Re: Look familiar? OSCNC

Doesn't seem like a bad design, linear slides are not easy to get a hold of and limited option for sizes. Kickstarter has policies against selling existing products but I assume that with care this can be gotten around, in this case this model is belt driven and their other products are ball screw o...

Re: MakerCAM - Issues with Circles (Google Chrome, Mac)

We've seen the circle/stairstep problem before, and it turned out to be very long lines, longer than GRBL could handle, so it ignored important parts of them. If you could post your actual G-code, it could be helpful. Hopefully this file attaches correctly; if not I'll find somewhere to host it and...

Re: DW 660 Problems

Yeah my girlfriend was almost in tears when I ran my first couple jobs with the 660 last weekend. It does sound like a jet set for takeoff.Then to add to it I bought one of those little shark vacs for my vacuum addition and the two of them together make my house loud enough to notice from the stree...

Re: Nema 17 motor for HobbyCNC?

I'm no expert but from my looking around it generally seems that NEMA17 steppers top out at something like 68 oz-in and NEMA23 seem to start at 100 oz-in and go to something over 300 oz-in. Bipolar models seem to be about 30% stronger than unipolar models so something like 48 oz-in maybe as high as ...

Re: Upsizing - the 2x4Oko build

Re: Dull threads on Z rod

The Z rod is ACME threaded which is thicker and more consistent than traditional screw threads this is the preferred solution for "power transmission" as opposed to screwing two pieces of metal together. the sharp edges of a screw thread are easy to ding and thus less reliable the "dull"ness is a be...
