Moving my Main Blog From MSDN to WWW.SebbyLive.Com

The time has come to finally move away from hosting my blog on MSDN. There are a few reasons for this transition but the two main deciding factors were that posting personal posts on a MSDN blog seemed odd (at least to me) and that I already had my own website to document my various…

Finally Updated www.SebbyLive.Com on 06/17!!!

Had lots of CNC related data to post to the site. Finally took some time this evening to go through and update the website http://www.sebbylive.com/projects/hardware/cnc-mill.aspx I’ve also added a donation page (I know, that’s lame) but in case anyone has used gear or expertise they are willing to share towards my projects… http://www.sebbylive.com/about-me/donate-for-my-projects.aspx Now it…

CNC Mill Motors Turning…

Here is a video I captured of the action I posted about yesterday. Not that much to look at unless you’re into step motors 😉

CNC Mill Update 06/12… It Turns!!!

Got the new gear I had ordered last weekend and spent a few hours hooking it up. Using Mach 3 I was finally able to get the motors turning. Now, there is a few wierd things going on in regards to the settings I have to use to get them to turn at the expected…

CNC Mill Update 06/03/07… Some Problems :(

Finally got everything wierd and hooked up. But so this weekend I tried to get one of the motors turning. No luck. I of course don’t have all the gear needed to diagnosis all the possible sources of the problems. But I do know the power supply is yielding the right output. I do also…

Actually, there is not too much of an update. Was hoping to take advantage of the 3 day weekend to make some progress but we finally got our paddle boat onto the lake and took advantage of the nice weather. Was nice to get some fresh air and take in some sun rays. Did manage…

Little More Work on my CNC Mill

This weekend, I spent a few hours working on my CNC Mill setup, most of it consisted of wiring. The motor controller board and putting it together. I have yet to complete my www.sebbylive.com post for this, but thought i’d write a quick blog-up on this. In the first picture below, is the controller board with…

Putting the CNC Controller Together – Part 1

I decided to start putting my CNC Mill CPU together today. Felt like modding a little so it semed like the best possible project. I probably should have tested all the components before I put them in (ok nothing isn’t working so far) but was a little too impulsive and wanted to get to it….

All the CNC Mill Hardware is In. Need to Put it Together…

From: http://www.sebbylive.com/projects/hardware/cnc-mill/hardware-to-control-and-drive-motors/all-the-required-hardware-is-in-need-to-put-it-together.aspx Finally, all the hardware needed to control the motors for the CNC is in… The power supply shown in this picture is only 12v 1.5A, which is really marginal for the requirements of the application (24v 3A is recommended). So such a setup would likely heat up (if not blow a fuse) under…
