Online G-Code generator for simple CNC hold-down clamp

This is simple online g-code generator which produces code for simple CNC hold-down clamp based on input parameters. I made this generator for learning purposes at moment, but I already have ideas to create some others also based on this code. Resulting G-Code should run well on grbl machines (tested). This is a simple CNC hold-down clamp

Simple cutting boards rack / holder

Quite long time ago I promised to build simple cutting boards rack/holder for our household/kitchen. As the old saying goes- if man has promises something, there is no need to remind him every six months about it. Anyway- I finally delivered. This is one very simple idea. Nothing too fancy, but already serving us good. There was

Gallery of timing belt clamp ideas for linear motion

There are several ways to clamp open loop timing belt ends together. Here are few of them gathered into one post with images and some with comments. Just a quick overview for ideas and images for quick reference. It could be helpful when you don’t know yet what method to use for clamping. Since most of

Wiring and running TB6600 stepper driver with Arduino

Here is quick post about TB6600 stepper driver which is based on TB6600HG chip. Here I use one without black plastic casing (See  more photos in my other post). It has model marking on the back that says “BL-TB6600-v1.2″. Stepper motor used in this demo is 23HS22-2804S (2.8A, NEMA23). Drive looks like this. Wiring it up Terminals

TB6600 4.5A photos without heatsink

Quick post about TB6600 stepper motor driver module. It should be 4.5A version. It has model marking on the back that says “BL-TB6600-v1.2″. This version has no plastic covering and has green PCB. Since originally everything is covered with large heatsink there is nothing much to see before removing it. Here I share some “closer look” photos I
