ANY UPDATES???  (;-) TP


Probotix asked to send them some pictures of my control box which I did. They said that it was very unusual to have a bad drive let alone three. They mailed 2 new drives last Monday which I should get early next week.

Regarding the 2 bad drives I have, they said it will be "nice" to send them back but I dont have to, I can just pitch them. I decided to send them back.

In the mean time I only have one good drive and gives me time to adjust my machine (I can switch cables and have all axes working one at a time) and learn more about mach3.

Well I got my new drives today, I was expecting them next week but I guess Probotix was too nice and sent them express post. Very nice of them.

Installed them and all is working beautiful now. I used a home made pen jig and made some squares on paper (see attached pics). Looks like that the machine is square.

Now the real fun will start to learn how to operate a CNC

Funny part is that as of last April I didn’t even know what CNC means………lol

I’m also a member of the routerforums.com and they have a small section for CNC which I never paid attention. One day I said, heck lets see what this is for. In one of the threads another member had an extensive post of how he built a CNC and that is when I really got hooked. I knew right away that I had to have one and the rest is history………..
