    I measured the coolant line nipples at .281", so I presume I can just use 1/4" ID clear vinyl hose for the coolant, and just force it onto the nipple?

    Thanks, but I rarely work beyond 8-10 hours at a time.

    Is there such a thing? I have to multitask in my shop and am anywhere from 10' to 50' from my Shopbot while it works, and could really use a wireless stop switch. I searched the company website, but...

    Thanks Jerry. I tried the UR command and reloaded the appropriate driver, but there is no difference to the outcome. I also continued in preview mode, and when I toggle to cut mode the Input #4 (kill...

    Yes, I operate by sneaker-net...only I have to walk about 30 feet! :) But my OS is not as early as yours. I use a Service Pack 1 XP Pro package from 2002 on my computer. It's incredibly stable given...

    You're correct, Adrain. The Shopbot control software's load on the machine is very different to virtually any consumer software. I run a stripped down version of XP on my computer with no consumer...

    It seems that my previous post upset some folks enough to warrant sending a PM/email to take me to task, so I thought I'd address some of their concerns. First, my PC doesn't have 16 GB of RAM....

    Thanks for the replies, guys. Peter, I use an infusion epoxy with a cps of 295 or 380, depending on which hardener I use. Don't know if that qualifies as close enough or not. I used .5 spacing on the...

    New brushes seem to have done the trick. After installing the new brushes and zeroing the axes, I let the router run for 10 minutes before resuming the toolpath it was on. Running like a champ!
