i'm in for this ride. I keep wanting to put arduino setworks on my mill but that will be a future thing when I learn how to do it.
I knew what I thought I meant.

You need to look at the posts of member arnold113. He had a homebrew mill with lots of similar ideas. Still under development when he suddenly died. He documented a lot of his work with pics and posts.

Yeah, CaseyK for sure. He lives about 15 miles from me. He works off-shore, I think 2 weeks on and 2 off, I have seen his mill a couple of times, seems every time I have time for another visit, he's off-shore..
