    HI All

    one other thing I am planning is a Bluetooth keyboard, to use as a remote pendant, there is a Keysonic with a laptop style mouse pad on Ebay for 35, unsure yet weather to take it apart and just use the "Hot keys" for Mach3 as buttons in a hand held unit, or just leave it as a keyboard,


    I like the idea of a wireless pendant the only problem is I will need 2 because I will probably loose 1

    there is another pendant I like around also on ebay but in the US but its not a wireless one

    if any one has any views on the Bluetooth I would like to hear

    Cheers

    Steve

    Yet again Im sorry it womt let me put up pictures as atachments (I could put pn photobucket adn link to them but I cant remember my password at moment) despite shrinking them as much as I can, it says.

    The Dimension limits for this filetype are 620 x 280. We were unable to resize your file so you will need to do so manually and upload it again. Your file is currently 454 x 480.

  2. did try to upload more photos but after emailing them to my self 4 times to reduce size I still cant get some of them small enough, sorry.
    You can download Serif PhotoPlus 6 for free here . It has an excellent export picture option that can resize and re-compress your images with ease, as well as all the usual photo manipulation tools. I'm using Serif PhotoPlus 11 but there are probably versions 12 and 13 (X2 and X3) available by now.

    I wouldnt use bluetooth myself as Im using 2.4ghz microsoft keyboard and mouse which sometimes prevents multiple keypresses, hence my motors stop when I jog them. Better to use wired.

    Great pictures and a solid machine. What stops the gantry lifting as I cant see bearing underneath? Is it the weight?

    Ignore last comment as just realised this is the plasma section

    Hi Steve,

    would you not have been better off mounting the rack and pinion the other way up to keep dross off it?
    (or are my eyes in upside down again):p

    that would aslo have stopped the gantry rising

    Nothing is foolproof......to a sufficiently talented fool!

    Yes it would have been But when I did it it got in the way of the under side (anti lift) cam followers (not fitted in pictures) but in hind sight had I mounted them the other way up I would not have needed the followers, there is still time to have a rethink yet, but put a single motor on the "X" today on the one side only and it runs sweet as a nut, it traveled the 1.9 mtr in 13 seconds fast travel no binding or high spots..........what do I do????????
