CNC Electronics Barbecue

I've been trying to figure out for a while how exactly I was going to contain the electronics for my CNC mill.  For a while, I had my c10 breakout board and my Keling Inc. stepper drivers and power supply just bolted to a board next to my machine.  

Look at this model of electrical safety!
This method proved to be completely stupid, so I soon moved on and put everything in a box.

A very ugly box.

This ugly box was not all that I hoped it would be, so I kept my eyes open for something more interesting.  Then one day, I looked at an old, rusted BBQ grill and thought "Perfect!" With a quick coat of paint, I had something much more interesting.


With a bit more work....

and some parts from radio shack...

I now have a super cool electronics enclosure.

with pretty, twisted wire groups
So now, my Grizzly SX3 can machine RepRap parts for me.

  1. This brings me to another design upgrade this project offers. Without having the Z gib very tight, the front of the head sags slightly.
