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
I got this one from: http://www.ebay.com/itm/261197907404?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
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.
There is a Mach3/4 supported USB->Parallel port converter so you don’t have to rely on DB25, too many people with machines newer than 2004 were complaining …
The one I ordered connects to an ethernet port on the computer. All good
