CNC Mill Update 06/12... It Turns!!!

Got the new gear I had ordered last weekend and spent a few hours hooking it up. Using Mach 3 I was finally able to get the motors turning. Now, there is a few wierd things going on in regards to the settings I have to use to get them to turn at the expected rate. But this is most likely a configuration issue.

Now that I have the basic gear setup, I need to start building the frame. But then again I am broke... :)

So I will take the time to update and plan how I will setup the actual frame.

For the frame, I was planning on using aluminium extrusion from 80/20 Inc for all of the frame.


That way, I can buy their surplus on eBay for a decent price.
