Heres some pics of my Harbor Freight X2 that I finished cncing recently.
Had successful tests running Mach 2 and some engraving software.
Now on to some improvements to the table travel, gonna see what I can get
out of it because 3.5 x 7 isn't enough.(Wish I would have splurged for the X3
instead, but oh well.)
Plan on making a remote pendant from a usb thrustmaster joystick.
Just bought a Dewalt laminant trimmer. Have one more bracket to make to
mount it on the head for better engraving.
Does anyone know if the X2 spindle can be turned on/off from Mach 2 using
M3/M5 thru the controller?
more stuff to come, Have autocad drawings for all the mounting brackets
that I made to mount the steppers and such if anyone wants them.
The DRO is one I made from a ShumaTech kit. http://www.shumatech.com/products/dro-350/index.htm
