May start a follow up thread…
I know nothing about cutting metal, particularly the threaded rod for Z.
Looking at pictures and things based on default lengths, this thing sticks up HUGE, well above the height of most routers. Since I’m not going to be routing, and I don’t really need anything for super stability while doing a laser diode…how easy it it to drastically shorten the overall height of this monster?
I think I need less than 1″ of travel on Z.
