Did this video help you?

wingedlightning: Unless your making something for aerospace "specifically" where you have multiple work pieces using a probe is really stupid, it's faster and just as accurate to just zero in any number of traditional ways... again probing is best for repeatability in parts that are not exactly the same; example castings, forgings, etc.. I understand this video is instructional to the use of the probe but using a probe to find hole center for one part is just noob~!

Gabriel Ueta: Why do not you use wireles mouse and keyboard? Does this cause interference in Mach3?

Largo: A titanium workpiece can do?

DorksDelivered: Fantastic Videos, I went out and purchased a 6040 for myself after watching. Can you please link me to mach blue probing by big-tex metric download?

Mat Helm: cheap probe...

John Burke: Hi luke where did you download probe screen from?? Great videos by the way

Nathan Matthews: Your videos are really top notch! Lots of great information. I've learned a LOT from watching your videos. Cheers!

Rod Jackson: I have also had the power supply go on mine as well got a new one from Jaycar quicker than waiting for it from china

Rod Jackson: I found my pin for my probe is 10 and the emergence stop and the e stop is 15. But on the wiring and pin out of my controller is the other way round. I think it is the Mach 3 software. Because it would not let me change them in the config setup

ipadize: why Center finding a hole when you already got it? :D

DCTTeacher1: Awesome stuff Luke. Don't you just love mach-3 and what it can do? I think it's time you and I upgrade our controllers. The machines themselves are robust and strong, but their controllers are their weakest link. Just my opinion. See ya soon mate. Cheers Azza

Jonny Deth: You should consider using your unit to build more units. It's a potential too many owners don't fulfill. I found a guy in the USA that was doing 4 x 8 foot tables using 90% MDF. He could build everything for well under $1000 USD because he even etched his own PCB's and built the controllers. This was a few years ago. I had hoped English speaking nations had woken up by now and realized this is our best tool for reclaiming our economies from the Chinese.

cruddCNC: No man I don't have the Gecko, you need to tune the motors using the potentiometer on the drivers. Read up and good luck! I almost bought the G540 but instead bought Keling 5056 digital drivers for a little more :)

AudiMouse: Thanks for these 6040 videos! I've ordered one myself and am waiting for it to arrive. I've noticed your machined "aux" table semi-permanently attached to the milling table. Do you have any details on this table?

tony humblestone: Hi Luke Been watching both of your channels, there great, i brought a e-bay 6040 cnc on your recommendation, had a few teething problems with motor tuning but think i have got it right, also tried this zero probe but can't get mine working, the yoocnc output board is different to yours, have you had anyone else with this problem. Also thanks to you i'm getting into Quadcopters, my other half is SO happy :-)

Martin Cauchon: hi from montreal canada quick question if you can help me did you install a geco g540 because i did and wanted to know whet did you put in motor tuning because if i put what the cnc 6040 manual tell me my parts are smaller and i dont understand what to do to fix this i am very new to cnc thx

cruddCNC: Well considering I am a complete noob, will a little help from a friend and lots of reading on the internet, it has actually been very simple. Always wanted to get in to CNC as a hobbyist and I am thoroughly enjoying it! I only bought this machine 2 months ago and can already make most of the things I'd like to. The only thing I'd do differently if I had the chance was buy a vertical mill instead of a router table. Purely for rigidity reasons :)

SpyderHelix: Another reason for the 'scuffing' of the inside of the circle could be the rigidity of the machine and tool deflection. I'll be keeping up with this channel to check out more of your vids - nice machine btw!

cruddCNC: Hey man no I haven't... I am working offshore for 5 weeks and also moving house so everything is packed up!

cruddCNC: Yeah mate loving mach3 - almost time to upgrade controllers indeed. I have heard good things about gecko 540 controllers, but cannot find solid mach3 setup information... next year I'd like to get a bigger vertical mill and convert it to CNC, integrate an automatic tool changer and everything. Exciting project :)

Alex Lopez: hello, I´ve been watching your videos about the 6040 cnc and I´m planing to by one. My question is what quind of software do you use to design and to generate the g code before using mach3?

tony humblestone: Hi Luke Been watching both of your channels, there great, i brought a e-bay 6040 cnc on your recommendation, had a few teething problems with motor tuning but think i have got it right, also tried this zero probe but can't get mine working, the yoocnc output board is different to yours, have you had anyone else with this problem.

Steves Projects: Hows things going mate have you done much more maching yet

Steves Projects: No worries mate work first play with the toys later :)

tony humblestone: Hi It now running great, had to change the stepper motor drivers and have changed 2 of the motors for more powerful ones, the power supply failed last month so are running two pc power supplys for the moment. the guy i got mine off has very bad customer support so would not recomend them but there are so many on there that are the from the same factory. the basic machine is great just the electronics are cheap, if you run them slow there are ok cheers Tony

carlric: I just order a 6040 4 axis, waiting for delivery. btw, you are very good looking. Thanks

cruddCNC: Hey man thanks for the comment - I made this video a while ago and I admit my knowledge was very limited (and still is, but expanding!). Funny that you recommend that mill, as I am about to buy one and convert it (following HOSS). Thanks for the info about the Gecko gear. I love to get tips from people with more knowledge/experience. Cheers

Captan6pack: I will be watching this channel closely and learning from it. Thank you for the feedback.

sn0wchyld: hey mate, can i ask who you bought the cnc off (ebay user id?) hows it running after 7 months? thinking of geting one myself... cheers

Captan6pack: CNC looking very interesting. How hard is this stuff to grasp from a rookie stand point?

cruddCNC: Hi Tony good to hear you are having fun :P I haven't heard of anyone having any difficulties sorry. Possibly a different board. Cheers

carlric: Great video, you are the bestest!!

tony humblestone: Hi Luke got the auto zero working at last, now going to try the home/limit switch's. Been designing a quadcopter frame in autocad aswell, hope to start cutting next week. cheers Tony
