    it'll give you a chance to do a bit of reading... this thing is definitely not plug-and-play kit

    my duet wifi arrived yesterday... still fitting connectors lol curse having to go to work. tis a bit disconcerting using putty as a terminal to send gcode to activate the webserver, but to say the interface is comprehensive is somewhat of an understatement. now, back to soldering

    what do you think of the chinese spindles in terms of reliability? i've seen a lot of them advertised? this is what sold it for me about using a spindle instead of a router, as living in a flat, noise is an issue (obviously, there's no cutting noise but y'know...) but i've got a storage room at the end of the balcony which will fit a 750x750 machine perfectly once it's soundproofed.

    have you tried the neodymium magnets out of an old harddrive?
  11. CNC equipment

    So, after a recent windfall, i'm planning on expanding my collection of toys (after a car and new mount) to include this for messing about with 10-15mm aluminium plate http://ooznest.co.uk/3D-Printer-CNC-Kits-Bundles/WorkBee-CNC-Machine/WorkBee-CNC-Full-Kit (and probably this http://openbuildspartstore.com/openbuilds-minimill/) The standard build uses a Dewalt 26200 router, which unfortunately, could wake the dead in operation... I've been looking at a Kress 1050 spindle instead of the Dewalt but was wondering if anyone has any experience of Kress spindles?

    should be a lot more future-proof than the atmega range (which to be honest is getting very long in the tooth now being only 8 bit) better drivers, better interface, better firmware etc etc etc...
  13. D-Bot 3D Printer

    well, i just pulled the trigger on one so it should be here in a day or 2... and now to play with the big boys

    hope we get a review of this... my extruder driver just turned it's toes up and of course being a cheapo chinese affair, the whole mobo is now useless :/
  15. Was a bit hairy drilling and tapping the crayford but it turned out quite good...
