Heyyyyy Everybody it’s been quite a while.
I built my burly mpcnc a few years ago with the 3/4 piping with a cutting area of 2’x3’. Asides from not fully mastering speed and feeds it’s a great little machine And I put a lot of hours into it.
I haven’t had time to mess with it all summer but I’m looking at the colder months to get back into it. The machine itself works fine. I just wish I could surface uneven boards faster with it. I have a1/4 shank 1” fly cutting bit that I use but it feels like I either can’t run the steppers fast enough or slow down the spindle enough (without losing torque). It’s been a while so I can’t recall the exact IPM on the surfacing moves but I’ll update later.
I’m debating on switching to primo I was wondering is the improvement in rigidity noticeable and do you guys suggest maybe running a real spindle instead the dewalt 660?
If I’m reading this right I just need a hardware kit new belts and all new printed parts? Also is there been any noticeable upgrades to the Rambo board I believe I have a version 1.2? Maybe even firmware upgrade or something?
The one thing I wished this machine to do is be controlled by some sort of joystick or controller. But I want to say people said the marlin firmware was holding it back.
