Ha, another D&M, welcome to the (small) crowd. I've had mine for a few years, and I'm really happy with it, and EMC.
I've refit the mill with Xylotex kit, but I really wish the Gecko had been around at the time, it's an excellent controller system. The higher voltage makes a huge difference...but I guess you've heard all that.
At any rate, I guess I'm not much help, but I had to reply when I saw "D&M".
