Black thingy

More unboxing. This time the power supply, another three of those 57HD0401-15SB steppers. two have large adaptor things on them, one has a smaller – must be the X,Y axis and the Z axis

Lots of bits
Nicely packaged

Layed out nicely on the dining room table

Parallel Port!
Parallel Port!

I did get quite excited now, thought I’d be CNC’ing on the weekend IF the power supply was 240V as ordered. Well, it is. However, I did see a somewhat ominous DB25 style connector, a parallel port. That’s something that i’ve not seen on a computer for a while. annoyingly, none of  the computers I own (don’t ask) seem have the pre-requisite hardware to drive this thing.

A quick Google suggests that it’s not gonna be that easy and more hardware’ll be required.

Tools and Bits

Ah well, a cute little case full of Screws, bits and tools is always good for a cheer up

More unboxing

Some more pictures….

Well packed so far

Pulled out the smallest box to start with, this is exciting

Inverter
No Idea why I’d need an ‘inverter’

However, something a little ‘odd’ here, I’d ordered a 240V version of the CNC, could it be possible they’ve sent some other voltage?

Uh-Oh…

Aaw, crap, this means I’m probably not going to be able to ‘play’ on the weekend
