IRC Channel

Can someone tell me why there isn't an active IRC Channel for the Shapeoko users? I found a channel on freenode #shapeoko, but no one is there. I would think this would be a HUG help to build the community.

Well...

I pulled the trigger and placed the order for my S03 today. Crazy thing is I started with a S01 a couple years ago and never got to do anything with it beyond building it and the test 'Shapeoko' job. Now I have a need for some actual use and hope the S03 will do the job; easy stuff for remote contro...

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Was able to get things to square up once I had a few moments to investigate. Loosened all 4 End Plates and slowly jogged the Y Axis to both end - even while loose the sides were not parallel. I then checked my tension on the wheels - BINGO. Tightened all End Plates equally and then adjusted to ensur...

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Please review the thread, you can see my base is flat and rigid; its made from extrusion. I am talking about getting it square.

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Finally got my brackets completed. Now investigating how to ensure the table remains square. Initial bolt up and the Y Axis appears to be off about 1/4 an inch from left to right side. I assume the lowers that are bolted to the extrusion are slightly tweaking the table, but unsure. Will have to look...

Re: 1000x1000 Thoughts

Here are some build pictures of the base. Nothing to exciting, will need to purchase the 2nd batch of extrusion to complete. Finished drilling all holes; tedious. http://i1327.photobucket.com/albums/u674/kerryfitzgeraldcorcoran/ShapeOko/BaseBottom01_zpsbad01ec7.jpg http://i1327.photobucket.com/album...
