    Personally I would only use 3 caps. Re the pci PP it can't do any harm. The attachments above don't appear to work.

    I bought 4 because I wanted a spare so I'll go with 3 ;)

    the company I bought 4 AM882's from contacted me today they only have 2 so told them to ship them and refund the difference and bought 2 from HK angry though as I was expecting them to arrive next week now going to be at least 2 :(

    When I finish the router and it moves properly I'm going to buy 1 3nm nema straight away to swap onto the X so I can swap the 2nm to the Z axis as I have a gap is bigger than I thought between the ballscrew and nema and the longer shaft of the 2nm motors are a perfect fit.

    Still got to drill the spindle mount out, bolts are going through the spindle mount them through the top Z axis plate, through aluminium spacers and into the Hiwin carriages directly.

    Really am going to need to fit a dedicated 32amp line to the consumer unit, checked out the vacuum cleaners I have and 1 is 2.2kw and the other 1.8kw so if I use them both at once then that's 4kw lol.

    What I need is an 800w cleaner for the dust shoe I think and dig out my vac pump or buy a 2nd hand one. At work I have infinite access to lorry air tanks (Used for the air brakes, raising suspension, etc) for free was thinking I could use a couple of them as vacuum tanks to increase the capacity of the vacuum pumps. I have compressed air on tap so less point fitting them for air.

    I wonder how safe the air tanks are if I draw a vacuum on them, I think it would be wise to put them in some sort of box to give some protection against failure.

    Was reading if I surface the MDF 1/16th both sides then I'll remove the non porous skin and the mdf will be permeable enough to suck through without holes I'm definitely going to have to try that.

    Tried to spin my nema's up with the cncshield and arduino but no luck just a ticking sound from the motor's. I've spun all the motors up using a ramps board so will have to drag my printer to the machine to try again annoyed.

    Bought myself a cheap spanner/ratchet set from banggood, missing 1/2 my spanners so have to borrow off others and they are getting annoyed.

    https://www.banggood.com/12pcs-Profe...l?rmmds=search

    click the EU warehouse and only 20 (7 cheaper than China) now that never happens lol, uber cheap for Chrome Vandium. It's also good to have some cheap spanners so you whack them with a hammer which my snap on set is too expesnive for that sort of crap lol

    I have 1/2 a snap on set and 1/2 a bluelight set (It's always the same ones missing lol)

    13mm and 22mm are destined to always be in someone elses box, although I no longer need 22mm.

    She moves! At least the gantry and Z axis not tried Y axis because of the dual ballscrew, will wait for the AM882's.

    Thanks been a long slog but so glad I didn't buy an Xcarve and built my own ;) For a long time I was toying with buying an Xcarve (Or Shapeoko)but I had the extrusion and I found this site and the next thing you know I have Hiwin's and ballscrews instead of a belt and some skateboard bearings lol.
