    Re: Series 3 Stepper EMI

    Re: PCNC 1100 Info

    After binging on NYCCNC and Tormach videos I'm at least a little informed now haha. I'll be purchasing the spindle upgrade immediately, but at least for now I don't see the need for the servos. It...

    Hey all. I was hoping to get some advice on this PCNC 1100. From what I've read this should be a series I? I might have the opportunity to pick it up for pretty cheap. What are some things to look...
