Re: 12 volt power

The flashlight and bracket is of no use to me now, it did serve its purpose well.
It slips in the clamp gap and is easily removed without any tools... They are free for the asking :shock: ...batteries (used) included !

Re: 12 volt power

LED fit in nicely, not much work to put in place.. a bit of whittling for the tabs on the LED lens. It's almost like it was made for this application !

12 volt power

I am considering incorporating a halo LED light into the upper half of the dust boot. Can anyone tell me where I can tap a 12 volt power source in the controller or somewhere between it and the spindle?

Re: Z axis repeatability

Good suggestions, I did find the coupler would take about 1/8 turn tightening.. I released both set screws and retightened. I am going to reduce plunge speed also. First have to stop by and get some cheap material to test those adjustments ;)
