    I’m getting ready to start my final assembly on my first MPCNC, 24 x 24 two questions.

    z gantry height I was thinking 6″ should I go lower? 4″ or 3″? I’m thinking 3″ would be tight if the bit is 1.5?

    Second question, The tool mount, there is a 4mm and a 6-32″ witch one do i use? (I printed both) i can’t see a deference in them.

    I have a feeling I’m going to feel dumb when i get this answer.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’m pretty sure the difference between the tool mounts is the size of the hole for nuts. I printed the 6-32 and the nuts were snug.

    Per Ryan, “The higher, the more unstable” 3 or 4″ is good. If you need more Z, build your table with a hole in the middle to go lower. Then you can get up to 6″ Z height as long as your piece is below your tabletop. 3 inches above and 3 inches below.

    Only one of the nuts will fit. Easy, the other won’t  fit. 🙂
