Thanks again

Re: Testers needed for new DW660 mounts.

I would be interested in the new mounts.

I am rebuilding my ShapeoKo to be 36in x 26in. If you are looking for immediate feedback I will understand and pass. I am still several week away from running any type of tests

Sounds cool

Please let us know when you have had time to "play" with the software. I for one have faith in you opinion. As you know, I speak for myself only, funds are limited and before I shell out several dead presidents I want to know that I am getting my monies worth.

Inexpensive speed control

I ran in to this while searching for other stuff. I don't know enough about electrical / electronics. Can someone comment on whether this is doable for our needs on the ShapeOko?

Re: extrusion joining clips and limit switch mounts

Looks like I am going to have to take some measurements and some pictures of the parts I want to utilize.
