### Re: Hello World!

Very, very sharp looking ``Hello world!'' Congratulations! (looking forward to seeing it on the gallery on the wiki). Yes, the dial indicator is a huge help in achieving precision --- fascinating to read about how that was initially achieved in books such as _Foundations of Mechanical Accuracy_. Th...

### Re: 3d vs 2.5d, is it well defined?

Roughly, 2.5D we have the complete control over X, Y and but half control over Z axis. In milling it...

Seems you are almost correct Will. I found two boards are little bit warped so that center line (where two boards meet) slightly lower. :-(. I can assure you I've tightened all the screws well.

### Re: \$150 off Misumi Promotion
