    Thats been one of my problems , I want to get something with a warranty to cover electronics on an inverter machine just in case of problems in the future.I am not going to do the deal with the guy if there is no warranty left on the welder.
    I dont have that much in the shoptask maybe 2500 over the year but have made a few parts that have helped pay for the machine and not it seems like if I get rid of it I will just get a smaller mill not the lathe mill combo machine, the only time I use the lathe seems to be polishing so I can make a spindle with a chuck to polish instead of taking up so much room in my garage.
    I would like to have a welder with a little more punch to it as well for when I do .250 work so I get better penetration and not have to bevel and do multi pass to get the job done..

    Nice looking CNC. Good job. Do you have any issues with dust getting on the worm drive & causing stalls? I had that problem with a Multi-cam CNC I used have.(it's been retired to the corner of the shop as a brake table). I made a little brush to run on the shaft to keep the dust from getting in the gears & it helped a lot. Maybe mine was just touchy.

    With the vacume I made for it it seems to keep 85% of the dust down so i have not had problems with it stalling, I thought about using the same type of brush that I bought for the dust collector and put that on the ballscrews if I have problems but so far doing OK with it..
    I got a $99.00 dust collector from harbor freight and it really has a lot of volume on the collector I was surprised how much it kept the dust down.The first cuts I made literally clouded the shop with dust until I added it.
    Thanks

    Yeah, you're certainly on the right track. I wouldn't want one unless I got some kind of warranty with it as well. Larry may have something if this doesn't work out & you're still looking. The stick welding capabilities of the 200 will handle most of what you want to do with ease.

    You could pick up a bench top mill cheap down the road if you part with what you have now. Always lots of options.
    So you're telling me...You're not nostalgic? Then, give me another word for it......

    Gary.......where did you get the brush material? Your cnc looks good. I made mine in the fall of 2006. It's in the projects under shop I believe. Mine is 60" x 60". Steppers, Xylotex, Mach 3, Aspire.

    Hey Monte,
    I orderd it from MSC they have it by the foot and differnt sizes as well.
    I dont have the part # or anything but do a search on MSC site for brush material and you will find it, only a few bucks a foot. I think mine is 5/16 so I made a small slot in the plate that I just tapped it down into it without any pins or glue. It is a pain to cut because when you do it has a .062 hard wire wraped in the aluminum sheith to hold the bristles in so I pinched mine with ****s first then cut to keep the bristles from falling out..
    If you cant find it just post again and I will see if I can find the link to the material..
    Thanks
    Gary
