I just saw it in a subscription email spark fun sent me. Looks nice!
Wonder if they'll have expansion rails...

If this is this year's new Shapeoko announcement I'm still feeling pretty good about the one I've got :)

Though I admit I am *slightly* envious about the new board having an expansion header with easily broken-out D11 and D13 pins. Not "drop $150 on a new board" envious though.

Their shipping to the UK is only £104.25 (US$158.377), via UPS expedited. That's reasonable. :)

Unlike Carbide 3D's rip off approach (US$400, via USPS).

Guessing Carbide 3D might now stop ripping off overseas customers (hopefully!), or Sparkfun will pick up the overseas buyers instead. Either way is good. ;)

Global Express to the UK from Pennsylvania for a 55 lb. 30.5x7.5x12.5 package is $332.85 --- probably being in the midwest accounts for the balance --- use a shipping service?

Wonder if their board has the same disconnection issues? I might get one if it doesn't.

I noticed the spark fun board doesn't have a 4th driver for the second y motor. Wonder how that impacts performance.

I personally think it's a on/off switch issue with the Dewalt.
I plugged the Dewalt into a power switch and use it's on/off switch to turn the router on and the vacuum on and off at the same time.
I don't loose connection at all anymore. And my shop is cleaner with one less step.
I kept hearing a faint static pop when turning on the Dewalt router which always preceded a disconnect.

Sounds like it was for you. I'm not using a DeWalt though... ;)
