Things to consider before you run your CNC machine for the first time

Postby SysBot » Wed May 27, 2015 4:53 am

Greetings, everyone. We have been talking about many things here on Amateurcnc.com but we have not yet covered one of the most important topics: What to do before you run your CNC machine for the first time.
So, you have either built the machine (using a DIY guide, no doubt) or bought one (check out some great machines here!), and you are ready to get started.
Here is a comprehensive guide, taken from Wiki/s and other great sources and compiled for an easy read.

hallo sysbot, are you sure that you haven't left out something here? Did you intend to link later or have you placed broken links?

If possible, include help issues for such errors as random shutdowns during operation or commencement of operations of the plasma torches, etc.

The suitable size of electric current is definitely a must in that case.

Almightyjackal has voiced my opinion. A good electric supply will not tear apart your electronics. Get some power surges while at it.

Great post! I always thought such an investment comes with its own powersurge protector, though!

Most do come with this contingency.
