    If you can sleep thru anything in a wood shop, then you’re the perfect dust collector ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s not the wood shop.ย  THAT is partially shown in post #80150. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Want to really damage your hearing. Sleep behind cycling muscle launcher rings for 10 years…. not much wakes me…

    I’m not even sure I want to know what a “muscle launcher ring” IS let alone listen to one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hehe.

     

    Ryan, can I use the 5mm to 8mm shaft coupler you sell with the threaded rod I’m using for the Z axis, or should I buy it and the acme threaded rod and re-print the part it mates to?

     

    tnx.

    That kinda depends. 5/16 rod tends to wobble in a 8mm coupler, that is why I made 5/16 coupler. Sometimes is is okay though. The T8 and a coupler is pretty dang smooth.

    Ok.ย  I’ll order the new parts.ย  Which component(s) do I need to print for the new Z axis screw?

     

    tnx.

    Nevermind, I found them – the “Burly” parts, right?ย  Is there anything else I need besides the stepper coupler and the lead screw?

    tnx.

    Everything else should be the same.ย  Screw, nut, and coupler should be all you need, oh, the screw to hold the nut to the plastic.

    I really like that color.

    You might want to put up a picture of everything so I can double check you have the right combo. The “Burly” is the entire center assembly.

    (sorry for the double post!)

    The filament I used is Atomic Gun Metal Gray PLA.ย  It’s amazing stuff.

    I’ve printed

    2 ea. of the Nut_Trap_Burly

    4 ea. Spacer_Corner_C_Burly

    1 ea. Z_Motor_C_Burly

    1 ea. Z_Lower_C_Burly

    2 ea. XYZ_C_Burly

    Then I printed the “C” parts from here:

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2847042/files

    It looks like I’m only missing the 2 XY_C_Burly parts, correct?

    FYI, the table build video is ~33 minutes.ย  I’m waiting on an intro graphic before I upload it to der tube. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Thanks!

    I got as far as the Z-axis assembly today.ย  No idea if I’ve got any usable video though. ๐Ÿ™

    Wouldn’t you know it, all the spindle mounts are for 52mm spindles.ย  Mine is 56.ย  *facedesk*

    I wish!ย  I went begging on Thingiverse to some of the 52mm mount designers.ย  I can design one if I absolutely have to, but until then I’m going to drag my feet some more. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Apparently the difference is that the one I bought is brushless and the ones most folks get are brushed.

    I have to admit I’m astonished at the number of hits I got on Thingiverse for “MPCNC”.ย  People are doing all kinds of neat things!

    I can’t wait to see what you think of that spindle that is the type I keep recommending….Blindly. Brush-less 5 wire, should have hall effect sensors so I can’t see it not being good.

    Let me see if I easily edit my file. No promises.

    If all else fails two sets of these should be enough.

    Thank you!ย  I’ll give it a look tomorrow.ย  I did finally find a 55mm mount, but forgot to print it with supports, so yours will go next. ๐Ÿ˜‰

     

    I don’t recall if the connector is 5 or 6 wire.ย  There’s two separate cables coming out of the top of the spindle that go into a compression terminal block.

    Tell me about the brushless spindle… Where, what, how much?

    #83136

    I would say let him try it out first. If he gives the thumbs up I might buy one as well, so I can give an option (and make a proper mount).

    This unit is /similar/ to the one I have: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brushless-Motor-Driver-w-Hall-Controller-400W-CNC-Motor-for-Spindle-Engraving/282297554188?hash=item41ba3ed50c:g:IosAAOSwq8BZcA-5:rk:1:pf:0

    However, I don’t think mine has the fancy control panel on the controller.ย  I’ll get some pics taken this weekend.

    Ryan, I’m printing your mount right now.ย  I also got a response by one of the other mount developers on Thingiverse – he made a 56mm version of his for me: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2872200

    Here’s some pics of the motor and controller:

    The connector is attached to two cables coming out of the top of the motor housing.

    The motor RPM is supposedly controllable via PWM signal – I’m kind of fuzzy on how that works.ย  I knew at some point, but that’s been lost to time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    (The post got mangled, so I had to edit…)
