Had a long weekend, glad It is monday where I can rest at work. (Goverment job)

I paneled and air conditioned the shop, installed Mach2/bobcad on the shop computer.

With no other changes the G00-wide open speed went up from 110inches per minute to 260 inches per minute. Accell-decell is so fast you can't hear it wind up. This is with the 200+ pound indexer on it. It'd not do that fast(110) before with it loaded.

I thought the nema 42 motors were reaching saturation. Evidently I just didn't know.

We learn a little more each day as we stumble through this world.
