Aluminum Guide

This guide is long over-due but I suppose better late than never. Over the past year, my MPCNC has been a gateway machine that got me introduced into the CNC world. I started off with a 3D printing setup, but always wanted to do some metal work. I now use...

New foot.

It is finally here, two years later, a new foot. Why, this one is better. Why is it better, more rigid and easy to adjust. Use some number 6 or equivalent screws and washers to hold them down. There are slotted and oversized holes so you can move them around to get...

T8 Leadscrew Compatible Parts

Changing the domain name

Look up is there a new domain name yet? Just a heads up the site might be a bit funky for the next few hours I am going to be changing the main domain name to V1Engineering.com. Doing this means server propagation, security updates, ssl, dns servers, yada yada.There...

Lil Update & Server Upgrade

Update #2- HaHA what kind of idiot changes a live site!....Don't mind the mess. I just had to start doing it or it would never get done. I think everything is working minus 1 video. I will keep going with the changes for the next few days...or until I get tired of it....

New Store Front

I opened up a new store front in hopes of a faster site, faster forums, cheaper shipping, easier shopping experience, more payment options, less time wasted on web development more time making cool stuff.... Tell me what you think, both shops work for the time being....
