Today I was messing around with my CNC shield (version 3.00) and GRBL. But somehow I managed to accidentally reverse the polarity of my power cables. Until today I had no problem keeping that in mind. The fuse was blown and like it’s not enough yet- drives also. DRV8825 drives have no reverse polarity protection-

This is a small follow up post for my main post (go read that post also after this post) about CMTP02 type of solar charger controller. Turned out that 5 amper version has actually much different content (-5a after model name refers to a maximum of 5 amperes charging current). It’s not actually a surprise since it handles much
I finally finished my DIY lightbox. I had the frame already assembled a few months ago. That frame was built using aluminum DIY profile corners and threaded bars. I have written about it in a separate post. Nothing too fancy, but does the job. I’ll share some photos how I built it. Parts used in my DIY
