My large machine 48 X 48
This machine is controlled by a Mach3 BOB. I USED Nema 34 stepper motors and a 3kw, water cooled spindle. I’m in the process of adding a vacuum table with 4 zones. I have an X-carve so I use Easel to create G-code for the large machine. I’m currently looking for a way to stabilize the Y-axis. It wiggles a little, so I want to add another linear rail high on both sides.
