I just purchased this guy.

ha.. I ran a furring strip through my planer to square it up and chopped off about a 9-10″ piece.
then just used some threaded inserts in the tail to screw it onto the tap.

If your near central illinois get in touch! Im about fifteen minutes east of peoria.

I was saving them for a rainy day. Where are you located? Heck if you are close to me I have an entire mpcnc still put together minus motors and electronics that you could have. Nothing wrong with it at all I just had three of them running at one time. It was used both for milling and laser. I ended up building another just for the laser. Now im moving on to the lr2 so I may have a second mpcnc that I may strip down lol. Too many projects not enough free time. You anywhere near illinois?

If the wait gets to be too long I have a set I printed awhile back. I am sure Ryan will be back up and running in a week or two (if not sooner).

I am interested in your table as well. Is that 2 or 3″ square tubing? I have a friend here at work who is a great welder this could be a route I would look to take! Love the thought of just being able to slide in a new 4×8 of plywood for a new spoilboard a year down the road and have a nice steel table to push around the shop. Any other info would be greatly appreciated! Any pics before the spoilboard was thrown down?

Unreal, I would love to see some vids of that pattern being burnt into that foam that is awesome! Well done

Dedication… your off a nut hair and still working towards perfection! I actually miss troubleshooting issues on a new build. I guess I need to join in on the beta fun sooner than later. My 3d printer has been collecting dust for the past few months.
NeilJuly 25, 2018 at 1:40 pm #64669
the second these things leave beta state im in! Thank you all for your continued ‘testing’. I will be looking forward to this build the second I am done with my homebrew beer all electric brew in a bag control panel!
Too many projects not enough time.
Awesome work as always Ryan!
NeilJune 23, 2018 at 3:52 am #62136
Got to ask. Which dust shoe that is? Looks good!

Like the idea buddy! Well done
NeilMay 1, 2018 at 4:54 am #59185
Nice work! Great idea!
NeilApril 26, 2018 at 4:46 pm #58914
Pics or it didn’t happen lol.. maybe a picture of your setup could give us more info. Like Ryan said is it touching the bearing properly?
NeilApril 26, 2018 at 8:53 am #58865
I use the coupler he pictured above with my allthread machine and it has worked just fine for years.
I am using the 5mm-8mm (i think) coupler like you pictured from the stepper to my allthread. Then of course using the nut posted just above in the printed material.
NeilApril 24, 2018 at 2:26 pm #58698
You will appreciate the knowledge you will gain in building it yourself. It may seem like a bit of a task getting it all together and understanding the initial setup/configuration. Now that you have the hard part out of the way have fun and get that machine dirty! In no time at all you will find yourself asking ‘what do I want to build today’. The MPCNC opens all new doors! As Ryan says #PrototypingPowerhouse
Looking great so far buddy!
NeilApril 24, 2018 at 12:11 pm #58681
how to pick out the diy 3d printing nerd at lowes 😉 I totally do the same thing. I see things and figure hmm I bet that would work in a pinch.
NeilApril 23, 2018 at 5:24 pm #58610
Luke I predict great things to come from you in the future. I love the clean setup. I also purchased a pi3/protoneer board to install on my next machine to give it a go.
Keep the updates coming!
NeilApril 18, 2018 at 1:32 pm #58234
I bought this little beauty and love it!
tad more expensive but I felt worth it. I have made a ton of gender bender cables for work with it outside of my hobby use at home and it has held up very well for 2+ years of use.
NeilApril 18, 2018 at 9:27 am #58204
^^ this – Agreed this helps tremendously! Especially on your finer detail cuts like you have here.
NeilApril 17, 2018 at 6:09 am #58080
Looks like ebay removed the user (he had a zero feedback). Hopefully no one here got burned by him.
NeilApril 13, 2018 at 12:16 pm #57800
Also, if you have not seen them already do some searching on youtube for Jason Hitesman. I know he is here on the forum as well. He will be a good reference for foam board cutting. I think at one time he had made an instructable. He has spent plenty of time tweaking the foam cutter to work well cutting flite-test planes.
NeilApril 13, 2018 at 7:44 am #57757
ugh. I hate to see this man. you are so close. If by chance you have not actually torn it apart try just swapping the y-axis stepper driver with say the x or z to see if the problem follows the stepper driver. Keep in mind these 3 dollar stepper drivers are a dime a dozen. I have experienced the same issue as you in the past on my mpcnc. After swapping drivers to see if the problem followed the drivers or the wiring, I quickly found out I had a dupont connector that was flaky. I ended up using scotch locks to connect the wires vs the finicky black dupont connectors and voila problem was solved.
your never a bother to anyone here man. thats what the forum is for.
neilApril 13, 2018 at 7:31 am #57756
Very cool! Thank you much buddy!!
neilApril 12, 2018 at 5:59 am #57617
If I had to guess it does not see the other internal geometry as a complete object. If you go to select the inside circles as a cut path does the ‘auto’ feature see them? They look really broken up as if they are just showing up as raster lines and not vector (I hope that makes some sense). Where did you source that DXF file from? You may have to use a manual tool path.
could be wrong but.. can we also see a shot of your tools menu
NeilApril 12, 2018 at 5:54 am #57614April 11, 2018 at 1:35 pm #57580The 1.6 only has one power input and it is the screw terminals
Pardon my ignorance of RAMPS, but which of the two screw terminals is the proper power input? The 5A one or the 11A one?
5A is for board and steppers (all that mpcnc requires)
11A is for heaters/fans (mp3dp)
