Making really nice stuff on a Centroid Acorn PM30-MV with you all the thank!

Post by AdamDee »

Hey guys,

Not sure if I'm posting this is the right spot - apologies in advance if this isn't the right place. Almost exactly two years ago I started a Precision Matthews PM30-MV conversion, and this forum was a hugely valuable resource. CNCKeith & you all helped me so much to wrap my head around the electrical build process - I don't think I could have done it without you. Two years later, I'm here to share a couple projects I'm really happy with - and to show any curious onlookers what is possible with the centroid Acorn. I'm running a Centroid Acorn, using Tormach TTS tool holding, Drewtronics Probe (sorry Centroid! I wish I could afford your probe!) and 12Nm closed loop stepper motors.

Cheers!
