    Completed the wiring...Will be testing soon, then a bit of tidying up and changing a couple of circuit breakers

    One thing i found was that although the Gecko is a nice and compact unit, wiring layout to it was a pain. So it's unlikely that i will use it in the future. I like the fact that if i have separate drives and bob i can change individual units if there are failures plus it's easier to do separation between control and main power. I am a little worried about electrical noise

    Looking good erick.
    You sure know how to make it neat and tidy.
    Puts my enclosure to shame.
    Been meaning to ask you if you could help me wire my delta vfd to my bob for spindle on/off control. My bob has a relay output for control but not sure which connections on the vfd to use?

    Wow nice work
    I always visualize my work to look like yours.
    I start with a Monet mind and end up with a Picasso finish.

    I love the machine
    I am starting a 4x4 to replace my 2x2

    Looking forward to seeing how its going to run with the new hardware
    i have tons of questions

    Thank you. The owner of the machine has a couple of roland engravers. He used this machine to carve amazing guitars but had too many hassles. Now he's ruining his small machines to do the work. Hope to have it working a bit better soon. Please feel free to ask anything. I will assist if i am able to
