    Hi mate- where are you based? I went down to build it from scratch path and it has been a long and challenging slog & with hindsight I should have started with a decommissioned table or kit instead.

    Hi Andrew, out of interest, which parts were missing?

    I have a very similar timetable to you with my order, I received into Fremantle last Monday. (48x96 PRO w NEMA 34 and Spindle)

    Hey elsy, great to hear you're also in Perth! We should get together some time.

    They left out my leg kit.. but they were great - the air expressed the missing alu (all 60+lbs of it) to me on Monday.

    Build is progressing .. but have hit a snag. Will see what CNCRP can do with the next challenge.

    Progress..

    Running in the spindle, machine pretty much built.. just one more thing !

    I forgot that I had upgraded from 4896 to 60120.. so . my cables for the servos were all too short ! 60120 needs a lot more cable!

    DMM DYN4 servos are really nice to setup and look forward to first cuts this week.

    Also connected up my camera to enable remote monitoring

    Running at full 300Hz, I'm seeing the body of the CNC spindle reaching 50C.. about 20-25C over ambient.

    Wondering if this is what other people are seeing ?

    I'd run it at half speed for an hour or two, to "break it in".
    You may see it run cooler after that.

    An update - after 2 days of soldering and splicing cables ( a task I will never do again !) I have got all 3 axes moving !!

    Now the gantry seems to be a bit twisted so will realign the plates tonight and am ready to start squaring and trammung the gantry and spindle !!

    Will have to order an extra set of 10m cables and upgrade the default cable drag chain to 130-150mm size as it wasn’t sized to carry AC servo and encoder cables.
