    Go to a site with CNC and Zone after it. I believe the software on this site won't allow a link to that place. That is where you will find a lot of people with hobby grade CNC Routers.

    When are they going to fix the issue with pictures posting 90 degrees off? I have a stiff neck and it does not move well. I guess I could set my monitor on it's side.

    Ok, then, I was almost going to ask your V-groove dimensions to see if I had something similar in the archives. No point to that now. I thought you were making a one off to repair a down machine for...

    Not sure on a static, but the added power consumption of a rotary is pretty much what it takes to run the idler motor, since it is spinning without any load on it the power consumption is pretty low....
