The X axis growling sound occurred only when I turned on the spindle.

> Craig I have tried 3 times to post photos to the forum but it rejects it each time.
That just means the site already has a file of that name. You need to rename your file.

Graig.
HMM....at least the drives were not 3040, 30x0, etc. series that some purchase.
Will make an exception for the drives being Chinese and continue with support.
Some info on them attached.

Hi Rich,
yes they do look better than most.

I am coming to the same conclusion as you, 'don't get involved supporting junk'. I got rather short with another poster where he refused to consider a G540
as opposed to the rubbish BoB that we'd already wasted so much time on. He'd bought the whole machine second hand for $200 so even if he stumped
up for a G540 he would still be well ahead. He was rather curt with me, which I understand nor even blame him. The upshot is that if I don't try to support
those types then I wont get the grief either.

Bottom line, if someone buys Chinese junk without doing any research, don't expect any help from me.

And if they buy Chinese junk after doing the research ... even less urge to help?

Sounds like your father may have been very unforgiving Roger.  bob

Nothing to do with fathers.

Rather, a realisation that my life is finite and that I have better things to do with it than repeatedly trying to help some idiots who have shown every sign of not wanting to listen to advice from many experienced players. Yes - idiots. I don't mind a novice who LISTENS carefully, but too many idiots seem to want a magic wand to solve all their problems at zero effort.

How often do you see a plea for help along the lines of "I have only $500 but I want a precision 4-axis mill" ? It just ain't possible, but there seems to be no telling them. So I don't.

Cheers
Roger
