Sure, I hope that its not a conflict of interest on the forums, but I went with an Acorn CNC from Centroid.
For starters I don’t have a X-Carve or any out of the box machine. I started with an Open Builds Sphinx and have at the current time built my own machine running ballscrews and linear rails, so its quite beefy of a machine.
The probe that I purchased was a normally closed probe, however in GRBL you can only have 1 probe input, and that meant that I could no longer use my touch plate.
I really liked GRBL Panel but its no longer supported and even at its best is limited to only 4 macros, no probing cycles, only one probe input etc. So really not ideal for where I am trying to get to.
All of this information came to me a week after I got this X-Controller, and I probably only used it for a few operations.
