I actually ordered a dial gauge last night so I can measure the runout. I will do my best to keep you posted :)

Received some more packages recently; somecopper clad PCBs and the M5 spiral flute tap. It almost feels like Christmas with packages arriving almost every other day lately :D
Doh, I've still to order some end mills! Got to get that sorted this weekend, I don't wanna be stuck with a running machine and no cutting tools :p

Some 100x70mm PCBs for future projects and the M5 tap needed for assembly.

Have now gotten most of the parts needed for the build, except the hardware kit from A/S/L, although it should ship this week.

Ordered a runout gauge to measure the CauCau and set up a crude bench test today. See the short video below for the measurements.


Measured on an 8mm ballnose end mill.
1st measurement as close to the collet as possible: ~0.03mm
2nd measurement at ~25mm from the collet: ~0.18mm

How are these stepper motors? Would you recommend them? Where did you get the drivers?

Thanks!
