Hi Kelly

Made a couple of mods to the CNC. the first one is adding Y Axis blocks (small square blocks with 4 bolts on the side)to lock the linnear bearing slides in place..I was geting about a millimeter displacement after cutting from the "home" position it started in..the second mod is a much larger and stronger motor driving the spindel..a far cry quieter as well..its a sewing machine motor..hehe..I was thinking of using a ac or dc servo motor for speed control and higher torque but so far have only found one nema 23 size unit and MAN it was expensive. ill keep looking..
