Where did you get your cable chain with the yellow studs?

received a different cable chain but I did not complain because I liked it...

Quality is good but he asks $30 extra for shipping...

It's black Rust-Oleum mixed with a bit of silver that I used for slide plate, results a very dark gris.

control panel

Hi all,

After a good vacation, I'm back in business... I have been busy mounting the control panel, and have a question. when fine tuning the motors can I use the same motor on all 4 gecko's g202 or is better to use the correspondent motor with each driver?

finish wiring

Almost finish wiring the machine. "Kitchen" went very well, got motor movement, tuning etc. BUT my motors are pk296a1a and in my head it was pk296a2a. will start underpowered with a power supply of 48V instead of 75V. Not a big deal as also I will start with a small router, 800W. After the first days will go for a spindle and new power supply. "mise en marche" is very soon

Looks good!

That long "printer" cable between the PC and the control box is a little worry - keep it away from power cables.

Yes, the printer cable is very long. I prefer the computer at the other side of the table. that cable served me during years in a plotter without problems.. let see how it goes. (I have a short one at hand, just in case

IT CUTS!!!!!!!!!!

as it should be. I dont have small bits to show more detailed cuts, need to go out...Thank you all members contributing to this forum full off good information. Special thanks to Gerald, everybody knows why and Mike, metalhead for his support.

when my workshop is more "presentable" I'll put more photos of the finalized machine.

A fine wine (1965) for a fine machine!

CHEERS!!!

mmm i dont agree that much.. now. have to learn, mach3, vectric, corel, solidwork, scketchup, how not burn bits. how to explain that this machine can make the sixteen chapeel but it will be very difficult, and you won't do it.

Congrats!
You can put solidworks & sketchup in the back seat for now. It will be more efficient learning if you concentrate on your 2.5D cutting 1st.
My software learning recommandation priority list as follows:
1) Mach3
2) 2D Cad
3) Vectrice
4) 2.5D stuff
99) 3D modeling.
