    Re: Concrete VMC

    I can't tell you how many projects I've seen stall out and the OPs disappear. To see all the axis installed and running, simply outstanding. And those robotics images, holy ****.

    A bit confused. The holes in the steel bar are for the linear rail or the bolts that anchor the bar into the base? Wasn't clear in that I see holes in the first...

    Make sure it powers on and variable speed works. Make sure it is stopped completely before trying to run in opposite direction. If that don't work (and it's not simple fix like the fuse), I...

    Yeah, 350KG is something you don't want hitting the ground, let alone your foot.
