    I do a lot of testing of things for linuxcnc. When the rpi4 started to look like a viable option for linuxcnc - I thought I would play with it. I finally has enough graphics power and pretty decent real time performance. (not as good as a decent PC but still)

    The machine does run but I also have 2 other fully functional machining centers that I can use. This is mainly something I like to tinker/test with. (yes I like that part a lot)

    I have a RPI4 myself and think it is very cool the entire system runs off of it. It would be nice to see you not fight LinuxCNC and make some parts with this mill.
    But again, maybe playing with LinuxCNC is just as much fun for you.

    For someone that hates it, you seem to be doing a pretty good job!

    control box is almost done - I think everything that needs to be in there is in there.. (added 2 relays so I have 2 switched outlets and 2 always on - initially at least for mist and flood coolant)

    I need to do a little more wire management... working with what I have
