This small CNC Engraving machine is available at the banggood.com site:
It can be hard to find the plans for this machine online. Here’s some help!
You’ll assemble most of it by just looking at the photos.
The manual I got with the latest one I ordered was pretty good.
The details page has a link to this dropbox:
Which has drivers, the manual, etc.
For the GRBL sender I have had good success with GRBL Panel which didn’t have as many features as others, but WORKED. https://github.com/
One option I added for the little CNC was a proper collet:
Drillpro-7Pcs-ER11-1-7mm- Spring-Collets-with-ER11A-5mm- Motor-Shaft-Holder-Extension- Rod-p-1280353.html
This makes it easy to use better tools. I was using a standard 1/4” v-carving router bit, for instance. I found that the hole in the adapter that is supposed to slide over the 5mm motor shaft was just a bit small. I reamed it out with a 5mm ream, and that worked great. For the first one, I had to shove it onto the motor shaft with a vise – which worked, but I’ll never get it off!
Finally, one change I made was to use better nuts and bolts. The screws that come with the thing are soft – like aluminum, and have Phillips heads, which I hate. Proper metric cap screws are much better. Sorry for .ca links.
