    Ticking along, torsion box bench and frame built. Waiting for castors and going to buy 40mm sq profile aluminium legs for bench as the last ones were wood and I was never 100% on them.

    An update on progress.

    bench and legs roughed in. Feet and braces coming, still to do magnetic latch to hold them up.

    frame of cnc and wasteboard mounted, I have a detail photo of that uploaded here.

    took a photo of one side plate and my start tidying cables, many more hours of that left to go.

    the last photo is a close up of the bench in folded position, I suspect it is too low for spindle and will need moving slightly, I have about 25 mm clearance to move wasteboard up so I anticipate no real issue. Plan to check next session and fix now.

    That is neat !! Exactly what I would need to do as I have limited space. How deep is it when folded in?

    motor wiring done and connected to controller.
    testing this weekend for movement and basic configuration, time to brush upon g code commands and pray I donít stuff a limit switch.

    router cable is too short, I changed the way I wanted to lay it and needed a couple more meters. New cable on order, my fault.

    Ben from xyz carve sent through replacement parts for the few missing bits (2 bolts for spindle clamp) and the damaged bearing. best to call him as the messaging system on his website and email seems to be a bit patchy. He answers regularly and is very responsive. All other bits were present and I even have a few spares here and there.

    leg braces arrived and will be installed over w/e as well.

    once movement is confirmed and machine operational it will be time to install spindle into carriage and attach shelf so I can place a laptop. Dust collection will come later

    I have movement.
    Compared to the last build I did the setup and configuration was a breeze. Had the unit up and going in about 20 minutes, including installing the drivers.
    UGS has come a long way in the last 2 years since I ran my old one, even has a setup wizard that sorts just about everything out.

    New cable installed for spindle.

    Next steps are to install fold out bench, connect the spindle and wire everything in permanently.

    Shop vac, no room for bigger and the last one was usable with no extraction.

    trick there was to avoid mdf and set up the cutter feed and speed to make heavier chips and not sawdust.

    however it did require regular visits with the vacuum cleaner to move the bulk of the material away when roughing.
