Hi Alan,
I'm not sure if I still have your number. Give me call/sms sometime. We have used plenty of these without any screened cables, I think I might know what the problem is. You can hook up...

Hi Kobus,

The controller you need is a single quadrant (1Q) SCR based controller. Bongfiglio has them but the price might not appeal to you(?), probably over R1000. I have a good design but it...

The 203's are pretty indestructible, reverse polarity will fry the internal fuse (a 15A part), replacement is bit of pain if you have mounted them in the enclosure already. Spare fuses are available...

Hi Marius,

Sorry to hear, I'm sure your grumpy neighbor didn't help any with your factory building either! I think you had a great product, aren't you going to continue with that?

Groete,

Kobus,

Are you going to hook up the 5th Axis to your BOB now? Much easier than swopping the wires.

If its not doing the dance it means the axes are homed simultaneously as opposed to sequentially. Look at the machine coordinates for X and A and see if they are zero after homing.

If you are homing two axes at the same time, remember to check 'Home slave with master' under 'General config'. This will stop the little dance that the A axis does afterwards.

DeskCNC is cheaper than Mach

Hello,

If you consider that a Mach license is $160 and you have no CAM functionality then $350 doesn't seem to bad for a control with 4 axis CAM package. You can add LazyCAM to Mach for $150...

15t Pulleys

I have used the 15t successfully many times on 1/2" shafts, you might consider going to a 17/18t pulley perhaps. Drill for two M3 grub screws in the root of a tooth and you will be fine....

Hello,

I haven't seen any photos of the Z axis and so here are a few.
