Re: Loc-Line Dust Collection

To those that have rigged up some loc line for vacuum dust collection - are you happy with the results? I ran my first job using the loc line vacuum nozzles and wasn't as happy as I was hoping to be. I have 2 nozzles with the medium sized tips. I think I need to add a dust shoe to keep the dust clos...

Re: Loc-Line Dust Collection

I recently upgraded to the dw611 and haven't made a dust shoe yet. I'm getting dust everywhere and this will be my next mod. I received the loc line and hopefully I get around to getting it plumbed up this weekend.

Re: Chomdh's ShapeOKO2 #3702

I cut some more hold downs tonight and everything went pretty well aside from the fact that I didn't make my tabs thick enough.

Re: File send issue after upgrade to GRBL 0.9g

Well the problem appears to be related to the helloworld file I was running. Tonight I ran some files generated by fusion 360 and had no issues, didn't have to do the reset axes trick. I don't recall the details of how that particular helloworld file was made. It may have been one I got from the wiki.

Re: Chomdh's ShapeOKO2 #3702

I finally finished the dw611 mounts and got it installed. I also replaced the z motor and that seemed to fix my issue of missed steps when moving +Z. I noticed the shaft was difficult to turn by hand, and this happened once before. This is the 2nd Z motor I've replaced. I'll try turning the current ...

jarret, I'm using UGS 1.0.8 And I have been checking my gcode files and deleting G40 when I find it, depending on what CAM program I use.
