I,m in sittingbourne kent, building now, all parts printed ! waiting for motor etc bundle hope to have running in a few weeks !!!March 20, 2017 at 1:14 am #29808
Build completed yesterday here in Chichester.
Minor hiccup over the weekend where i fried the electronics but Amazon prime even delivers on Sundays so was back in business in under 24hrs.
Today I start cutting. I’m using a Katsu router, any of you have the same, and if so any tips re feed rate etc?April 18, 2017 at 4:51 am #31669
Robert, Good to know there’s another one in Kent coming along. Did you get all the parts and begin assembling?
Will, I’ve fried a few Arduinos and shields myself, so always have spares now! I had a scenario where things kept breaking until I started again with a fresh set of Arduino, shield and stepper drivers.
How are you going? I went for the Katsu too, so I’m keen to hear how you get on. Please post any findings about feedrates etc, when available.
I’m back on the project after a house move and workshop setup, so looking forward to hearing about any progress.April 18, 2017 at 6:46 am #31674
I am up in south Manchester, Cheadle to be more exact. Using a Mckeller router 600w cause its what I already had, made a mount and stuck it on thingyverse. Still not finished the router yet. I have one foot left to print but all my hardware is bolted up, electronics flashed but the motors and belts aren’t mounted yet. I’m procrastinating as I have to build an office outside for it which is having foundations poured at the end of the week. Kinda no incentive to finish till I can actually use it in anger. Things should start happening a bit quicker after that but I have a very small baby too so often getting distracted by the wife to do my bit. Just bought a 4000w scr from gearbest for it to control the router speed. Anymore of us up north?April 18, 2017 at 7:38 am #31678
I’m in Putney swap London, although I’m building it as a 3d printer rather than a CNC machine.April 30, 2017 at 6:46 am #32420
Hi built and running now just need to learn about cutting depth and feed rates thought I had it set for 1mm passes but dive down to 5mm .stopped in time before any damage done . Using estlcam . Sure I will get there in the end lolApril 30, 2017 at 6:46 am #32421
