Re: My GRBL pendant

How are you coming along with this? This is really cool. Are you planning a pass-thru of sorts to allow a PC connection to transmit jobs? I'm just starting to design an implementation of some extra controls like e-stop and spindle power.

Spindle mount spacers

Until I can get an alternate spindle/mount solution, can I add maybe a 3/8" or 1/2" spacer behind the universal spindle mount (with longer screws too) to hold the Altocraft spindle away from Z-axis to increase clearance? Given that this thing can hold a Bosch Colt, I assume this should be fine, but ...

Re: Step Down parameter in the docs.

OK, that makes sense. I didn't have any cork, so I used some 1/2" plywood scrap I had so this information was important to my project, so I was looking at it from a slightly different context than what was intended. Thanks for the introduction to Schlock Mercenary, another black hole I'm incapable o...

Step Down parameter in the docs.

So I've been using the instructions in the First Job page and I have a question about the 'Step Down:' parameter. It's mostly written as 0.3125, should that be 0.03125 instead? I'm not exactly sure or I would create a pull request.

Re: What did I do wrong?

Thanks Will. I ended up with a legible Shapeoko 2 now. I will point out though, and I guess I missed this when I proofread stuff, the recommended start is $6=28, but the 'To save typing:' text has $6=192, which is none of the options below it.

Should the text be modified to reflect $6=28?

Re: Proofread docs.shapeoko.com once again

Is the Wiring Option #1 to be expanded? I'm not sure what is supposed to be contained in there.

Re: Proofread docs.shapeoko.com once again

OK, I finished reviewing. I'll let you know if I find anything else. Let me know if you need anything else in the meantime.

Re: Letter Coaster Creation Help

I played around with your instructions Will, I think I can get something passable from that. I didn't know what the little icon meant and there are no 'tips' that pop up when you hover over them. I will post a revision when I'm happy with it. I really need to get back to assembling my machine though.
