Right here is the setup im doing for the mill.

X3 Small mill


Just picked these up from Parcel Farce had to pay them over 25quid in handling grrr + customs. It took them longer to move it from customs to Dorset than it took from the factory(usa) to england. oh well heh
Geckodrive G540, 2x Keling KL23H2100-35-4B 381 oz motors for X and Y, 1x Keling KL34H295-43-8A 906 oz N34 motor for Z and 1x Keling KL-350-48 48V/7.3A PSU.


Will be getting the cncfusion delux kit when i got the stand and liquid cooling ready.

That's a nice setup - I got some very similar motorsfrom Keling and a similar PSU secondhand in the UK. Geckos are great bits of kit. I've alos got a touchscreen on mine which is brilliant - bought it for 9 as the glass unit and just glued it to the front of my monitor.

I recently added coolant on mine - thought these proper setups were a bit expensive so I bought a pond pump, a plastic box, some funnels and some hose and got the system going for 30 - then spent another 20 on proper locline for the hose. Works like a dream so far

Just got a phone call from the director of kit car type stuff from the Bournemouth DVLA had a nice long chat and he gave me his personal number. He confirmed that i can used the steering colum and axle along with a unwelded chassis kit from saturn to get a age related plate. Also he is sending me a load of forms/info. Unfortunatly due to current rules ect i cant get a custom vin but will be issued with a dvla one instead. No big deal what i really care about is a non Q. Real nice chap and he will be the one to inspect the car as well. So yeah fantastic news

Got to love a straigh6 though...

My usual choice of Propultion is a V6, wish I had gone with one on the galaxy rather than the 4pot.

I am amazed they cast the diff housing into the sump, sierra ones bolt on.
