We should know in about two weeks. I got the hardware kit yesterday, and I’ve got at least 36 hours of printing left. I’m going to order a 1.5kw spindle and VFD and see how it works out. I’m trying to talk myself out of buying a Precision Matthews 45M-CNC machine, but every day I end up looking at mills and end up there. At this point my main focus are chassis and suspension parts for a couple of reverse trike projects I have in mind. So far my designs only use flat plates for the fabricated parts, anything more complicated is easier to source from an exisitng bike or automobile. So a full CNC Mill is overkill, but if I had one I would have to make a 1/5 or 1/4 scale V8, just for fun.
