    I suggest refraining from hitting the red stop button during bit changes. It's not only unnecessary, it also cuts power to the motors, rendering them free to move. All you need to do is remove the...

    I have a 2013 PRS Alpha and when the system is powered up, the gantry is solid as a rock. No way to move it at all. I've changed bits hundreds of times and never lost position.

    I suspect your...

    If you don't call, you won't know. Besides, it would probably cost more to ship the darn thing than buy it regardless of where you sourced it (unless Amazon Prime).

    If you have similar motors on other axises, swap them and see if the problem persists. If it moves to a different axis, then you likely have a failing motor. If it persists on the same axis, it's...

    No actual help in your case but what I did is take pictures of the values screens and saved them in my photos. That way, when SB's software blows the settings files, I can easily refer to them on my...

    What do you mean by dormant? Was it operational when you stopped using it? If so, then it's very likely all you'll need to is clean off the cobwebs and fire it up. If you pulled it out of a flood, or...

    You should also specify if there's any warranty and what software, if any, comes with the sale.

    Good luck with the sale! I hope you get asking price.

    Threads stay here until the end of time, or when their server fails.

    When you say sold at asking price, does that mean you got $35k for a nearly 15 year old machine? That would be amazing and...

    Just as a cursory opinion, your price is WAY too high. You could buy a brand new machine from SB for less than that. A more reasonable price would be somewhere in the $12k-$15k range. Even that would...

    Of course you won't "name names". That's so typical of the straw dog arguments that circulate on the internet. I call this type of complaining "Fact free whining." I suggest posting it in "Truth...

    I'd love to know what model you bought and what it set you back. Looks like a huge upgrade to the SB, and the SB isn't even in the same league.

    I have the two HP version of this machine and it's a workhorse. I've had it since 2013. If I didn't already have one, I'd be on this like white on rice.

    Scanning is a lot more than the device. It's also the software behind it. From what I've seen, unless you're spending $20k or more, the system is likely to be suboptimal. I've tried a number of these...
