Re: Improbable Construct S2 buildlog

Re: SO2 Nema 23 mount for Acme upgraded Z axis direct drive

Shoot me an email with your address and I will send one your way.

Re: Anyone used Evapo-rust?

Its Miata based. It has the whole drive train from a 2000 Miata in it. 120 or so HP, little less than that in torque but it only weighs about 1500 lbs. Its about a 800 lbs less than a stock Miata. Here is the whole build log: http://mevowners.proboards.com/thread/6048/improbable-constructs-build-low...

The Kits are no longer available but I do have a couple of the plates leftover. The rest of the parts can be sourced individually. PM or email me if you are interested.
