    Hi all,

    Just finishing up my ox build and now I'm on to the wiring. This might have been answered before but I don't know where to look for it. I was starting to mount the driver boards and my bob on the back rail of gantry assembly like suggested. I was wondering if this is what everyone else does? Does this set up work well with dust from cutting wood? I would of course mount exposed parts in a box with fan but wouldn't that just pull dust in? What is your experience with this? If you have this setup how well does it work?

    I can't speak for others, but I put all of my electronics in an old PC case.
    I also have a dust collection boot that collects 95% of the dust.
    Before I came up with that, cleanup was a constant problem.
