I thought about getting a piece of lead flashing and cutting it out on the router. I could use one of the base pieces dxf, but then thought better of it. If brass can gum up an end mill, think of what lead would do! We don’t have kids, and I’m pretty sure Shaneh won’t chew on the base, so wasn’t really worried about that aspect of it.

Usually it’s the Mega that kicks the bucket. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ramps board get cooked. Can you post pictures? Screen and stepper drivers are probably okay, they weren’t in the path of the current.
Depends on the bit. It should say on the packaging. If it doesn’t, make sure you’re wearing safety glasses, and never get your eyes in the plane of rotation! Usually when a bit does a RUD it’s either because the carbide tips weren’t soldered on correctly, or they got hot enough to unsolder. They almost never come apart because of overspeed, almost…
