    Re: Digitizing in Mach 4?

    I withdraw the question. I've decided to go with UCCNC instead.

    Re: Lubricating Z axis of Benchtop Pro

    It is, the 2436 model, and yes I just took possession a couple of weeks back.

    To go one more level on the mystery: despite having been told to use "a light machine oil" on the ballscrews, they...

    Re: Lubricating Z axis of Benchtop Pro

    Old thread I know, but in case it will help someone later on, I was told something completely different by CNCRP support.

    "Not much maintenance is required for your machine. The linear bearings...
  6. Re: Pros and Cons of Using Dual Z Axis Drive

    I actually made my first Openbuilds machine with this design, for the same reasons you listed.

    In my case, while it worked, the design of the gantry wasn't strong enough for its height. I'd...

    Return policy

    Just received my Benchtop Pro 2436 a couple of days ago. Does anyone know what the return policy is at CNC Router Parts? I feel like an idiot for not asking prior to purchase but I guess I never...

  13. Re: Boosting voltage between drivers and motors

    Appreciate the info. Sadly, I don't think I love this controller quite that much. I'll either find some more efficient motors or switch controllers.
  14. Re: Boosting voltage between drivers and motors

  15. Boosting voltage between drivers and motors

    I currently use an all-in-one controller for my CNC router that I absolutely love with one exception: it limits my input voltage to 36V. Since it's self-contained, the control signals are converted...

    Re: CNCRP Benchtop Pro or Standard 2424

    Looking at buying a secondhand Mk 3/4 board and need to know if the license for the software that is being offered with it is transferable to me?

    Thanks!
