12.5 inches ???????, or 12.5mm thick.

Let's assume 12.5mm thick on possibly a 1.5hp triac, but then 2100rpm is a bit slow for a triac.

With a 10mm 3 flute slot drill you should be able to run around the plate with one cut at about 150 - 200mm/min. Slotting or pocketing will be slower at about a third of open face cutting. I would suggest a two flute slot drill to get the swarf out better, you'll sacrifice a bit of cutting feed speed but benefit with swarf removal.

6082 is your friend with this sort of job, machines well and is cheap to source.

have you managed to get the program past the point it stopped at, could be your license file is not being seen. If it's interference you can raise the debounce interval to around 2000 - 3000 which should cure the interference. You'll find the setting in config/general config.

stepper through a worm with a ratchet mechanism for location.

i've seen problems with service pack 3, so i would leave alone

you can lower it but i find lower than 2000 and you get false triggers, cnc machines are noisy things.

in general config raise the debounce interval to 3000, see if that cures it. if you're already at that value go up a bit more.

I would look out for a used benchtop denford cnc mill, a novamill or triac would be ideal. You won't get a mill and conversion for the cost of these mills, and not get the quality either.
