SSYTC080 First Test Run

The first run of the CNC Router, using an existing code provided so I could test the setup.

The bench rocks quite a bit which is apparent in the video – this will be corrected by securing the bench to the shed itself.  Lots of momentum in such a heavy tool (and gantry).  The machine itself doesn’t suffer from it because of the size and quality of the stepper motors used.

Guard removed for visibility.  This is a quick test of the CNC, so the camera was set to record without particular attention being paid to the lighting, sound or quality, so don’t assume too much on that regard!
