nash, That is excellent news.
Must admit - I had doubts that you would find a manufacturer prepared to make a Gantry out of Steel for you. 4mm Thick. Wow! That will sure have some strength and weight. You might need a crane to fit the gantry to the machine upon arrival.
Preistwood says that he is finding the Syntec Controller easy to use. Good to see that there are now instructions available.
I note that you did not mention the manufacturers name - or did you? A bit cryptic maybe?
There has been a bit of a rebellion about the Chinese machines this week, but i feel it needs be kept in perspective. Aside from the Customer Service issues that we had, i am still an avid supporter of thes machines.
You cannot get better value!
Sounds like it will be a superb machine.
