General DWC Questions / Limit Switches
« on: June 01, 2017, 07:13:01 AM »
Hello,
  Been using my DWC since 2014. I would like to add limit switches to all the axis since I am starting to let the wife and other family members use them. I'm well versed in machine tool building and operating, but they are not. To take out the option of them running to the ends of the belts and screws I would like to add limit switches. Any placement ideas? Also I know the Gecko board and CNC-USB have provisions for limit switches; is there much of a difference between using one or the other?

General DWC Questions / Lasers
« on: July 29, 2015, 11:07:35 AM »
Anyone considered swapping the spinde or adding a laser? I have a laser and driver I'm reworking from another machine. And I see there is some software available that will play nice with Mach3 but my machine uses USBCNC.

General DWC Questions / New Controller

My X-Keys USB pad just came in today. Less than an hour later it was programmed and I was using it to run signs.
This is the unit I bought.

Here it is marked and ready to go.



These are very cool units. The software makes it easy to program. You can script the entire process or use their program to record keystrokes.  The only thing left to see is how well it holds up to the dust. I am using this in conjunction with the programmable USB foot switch that I have programmed as the software E-Stop.

Had some time to kill at work, used some scraps and made a holder to chuck up in the router. See attached video link.
