Re: A favour --- measure the DWP611 collet wrenches?

Unless I'm crazy, mine only came with one wrench, and I traced and scanned it. The two marks to the left of the wrench should be 1 inch apart.

Re: Eccentric Nuts

I have successfully made eccentric spacers out of 1/4in aluminum on my Shapeoko.

I attached an SVG, but I did these a while ago, and am not 100% sure I uploaded the final version, so you probably want to check the dimensions before you make any.

I'm open to offers on the collets
If you want to break it up, I'd be interested in the 1/4 collet and it's nut.

Re: M3/M5 Not Queued

The M0 problem has been fixed in v0.9i. Just be aware that I had forgotten to add a new state to tell the user what Grbl is doing during a program pause. It'll say IDLE during an M0, M2, or M30, but it needs a cycle start/resume command to continue. Thanks for your help. I've been avoiding the upgr...

M3/M5 Not Queued

I do a lot of tool changes using M0 to pause the program, and a resume button to continue the job after the bit has been changed. This works well, but I just added a spindle relay, and have a problem using it for tool changes. Running this gcode works as expected. Assuming we start at zero, it moves...

Re: Aluminum 5754 any good?

Judging from what I've found for the wiki the whole 5xxx series seems difficult to machine. http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php/Materials#Aluminium This page doesn't bode well: http://www.usinage.com/en/pj-categs/aluminium-en/ Machining Costs --- €€€ Alu 5754: Very low stress tolerance (220 MPa)...

Microcenter has it for $15 a spool for ABS/PLA/HIPS. I've had very good luck with all of their filaments.

Re: Adapt GRBL output to motor configuration

I'd thought that Deltas &c., rather than change their control software had a pre-processor which took the Cartesian values in typical G-code and modified that (which I've always thought was bizarre --- it would seem far better to have the machine and movement geometry taken into consideration by th...
