I'm with you mate!Originally Posted by NeoMoses
I've salvaged a heap of motors - but my joy sometimes in "dumpster diving" is the salvage - and not the building....
So I too am looking for some inputs on integrating the bits! I'm not too into the electronics end (lets say ----yet) to know how to cobble up a controller - so, I'd be looking for a simple solution for that end. I couldn't even gues HOW to use the built in bits to do the job (embarresed smile)
I think that MACH2 and other progs would do ok - if you can get the controler/driver hardware/firmware to work with the motors!
PS Other bits available from a printer/scanner are the rails, carriages, gears, and all kinds of electric gear - sometimes I feel like a caveman looking at a wristwatch! And all I got for tolols is a hammer!
