Ha, that’s funny. When I first saw your post, I was trying to figure out what you were spelling and all I could see was omelet.
I strongly recommend editing my script to go less than one inch. A half inch would probably do. It drives me nuts watching it cut that unnecessarily long slot. But then again… I seem to always be in a hurry.
Add some magnets to the back of smaller ones and put them on the fridge.
Totally doing this for the fridge. Wife will love it!
Here are the scrabble pieces hung on the wall…apparently, she takes worse pictures then I do. She decided to put them on a different wall, they could have been bigger here. Maybe next time
Bear in mind, GRBL does not support a rotary axis, so other upgrades must take place first
Quick test just to make sure it can move
Very cool, what are you looking at using for a controller?
I am going with the Gecko G540 with Ethernet Smoothstepper.
I like my Smoothieboard quite a lot. If you haven’t already looked at it, I think it’s worth considering.
I didn’t know about it. It is too late now, I have already ordered everything.
Are you using Mach 3?
The Gecko G540 and the smoothstepper supports both Mach3 and Mach4, I am looking at both now and with what I am reading I will probably go with Mach3
You might want to look at this.
It looks good, but the computer in my shop does not have a parallel port(none of my systems do anymore).
Easily fixed with an add in PCI parallel port or a Mesanet FPGA card. That way you could run Linuxcnc
Too late…I’ve already ordered everything I need.
It also has a USB port as well as a parallel port. Also you. An get a usb to parallel converter.
According to their info:
D: USB - Connect to USB connector on PC. Powers the logic supply of the board.
E: PARALLEL PORT - Connect to the primary (built onto the motherboard) DB-25 connector on the PC.
