    Great job on this one @Bruce Walker ! I like really the 3D printed mods you came up with especially the corner brackets on the back for the wiring. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Mark. I'm trying to find a balance right now between making parts to get the machine how I want it and actually learning how to use it.

    So far I am very happy with it. I've been running it 6-8 hrs a day for a few days. I have a small 40mm fan and the driver heat sinks remain cool enough to hold my finger on indefinitely. I've only cut MDF so far, but I've cut 1mm depths at 2500 mm/min (I haven't done the math to ensure I am actually hitting that speed in a 200mm long cut) with a 3mm end mill without any issues.
