    I always have advice. Are you looking for general wiring advice or specific wiring instructions for the low rider?

    Software

    This shows you how to make sure it is moving in the right direction. Then you can tape a pen to it and try drawing the crown.

    Here is a picture of all the pieces that came with the bundle i got. just not sure how some of this goes together. I know the gray cable goes in the red piece on the left and that plugs into the LCD, but i dont know where it plugs into the mini rambo. Also the power supply has a red and white wire, i know where it goes, but which port do i screw it into?

    Not at all. You made me realize it is not linked on the LowRider page. Working on all of that over the next few days.

    what success have you guys had with vacuum hose for the dust collect? all the hoses i see, seem really stiff.

    It gets looped, I just bought extra that fits mine. Barry mounted his on an arm. You have options.

    I look to the forms try to answer this but was having a hard time finding it. Issue I’m having now is that my Z access moves in opposite directions of each other. I put two blocks on both sides to set it so to be equal but when I go to move it they move in opposite directions.

    That software link I gave you earlier has the answer at the bottom of the page “flip the plug”. If it’s going the wrong way you need to power down and flip one of the plugs over and you’ll be good.

    found the problem, my table is just a little to big and it was the vertical pipes rubbing on the wood as it moved.

    I’d still lube the screws.  They will last longer.

    silly question but i am going to ask.

    How does the CNC machine know the size of my table, when it comes to finding it home position. is that all based on the grid i setup in Repetier Host?

    The reason i ask, is if i set my home on the LCD it goes to one end of my table and if i go from Repetier Host, it goes to the opposite end.

    Unless you have end stops, don’t hit the home buttons.  Repetier has bed size settings.
