Yep, that's definitely on board for the mill. I just need to finally break down and buy a friggin sherline and a stepper drive and I should be good to go.  :D

What's the part you're making?

Thanks,
Dave

I was just getting my feet wet with the 4th axis and writing the code , on my boats the electric motors are watercooled and I figured a cooling jacket with fins would be cool . This was just an experiment to see how 50 and 60 fins would look and is now sitting on my bench as a paper weight , when the new motors come in I will make the jackets with fins going from one end to the other

Extremely neat work Dave. A machine to be proud of.

Thank you sir, unfortunately I'm pretty swamped here lately and can't get a large chunk of time to play -  >:(

I have a lot to learn with this thing  :D

Ok so my noname controller died as I figured it would as it was used and cheap.... but it got me started into putting together the whole cnc thing so it was worth it.  :D

So I bought the G540 and wired it up with a little help from "Crevicereamer" over at the "Zone".

I added 2 of the 270 oz. Keling KL23H276-28-4B steppers and the Keling KL-300-48 48V power supply and she runs like a champ so far. Like a bonehead, I completely forgot to wire in my fuseholder which I will have to do soon-

A couple of pics for you of the front of the controller sporting the logo I drew up which I thought was rather appropriate. ;) And also a quick shot of the back as well.

I'm also including a couple of shots of the newly wired home switches and notice how I did the Z switch on an adjustable stainless rod. This will be very handy.

Thanks,
Dave

I love the Gecko Inside logo.

Again very professional looking standard of workmanship.

Thanks, fellas, I appreciate the kind words.  :)

Peter, I look forward to seeing how you do it as I'm pretty much an electronics nimrod. This will really add the "cool factor" to any setup  8)

Thanks,
Dave
