Thanks Dave.

so your actual resolution and repeatability is?


Hi YNN,

That is a very difficult, if not impossible, question to answer. The difference between theoretical and actual resolution of any machine depends on just so many factors.

In practice, as you know, I do of lot of small engraving work which requires a high degree of positional accuracy but that does not necessarily mean that the work is done to a high degree of dimensional precision, after all, my machine is basically just a wood router but overall, when engraving, I expect to achieve a positional accuracy of better than ± 0.00625mm.

I've worked on grinders that can barley hold that and that's using Marposs, but then again your key word there is "expect"

Reference to your Winston Churchill signature: I expect Success but I too learn from my many Failures.  ;D

I'm just happy to get chips to fly and acceptable results. I work by thinking: Form, Fit & Function or Get out your wallet.  ;)

Too cute, now if you can get that to fit and I can read it, between just two of those lines on that scale.  :o
