I am on the cusp of purchasing a Shapeoko, and have some questions that I was hoping the community/support could help with:
I want to spend some time designing a cabinet before it arrives, because without one, dust and noise will keep me from really using it.
So, specific questions:
. If it is possible, should the electronics be separate in my cabinet to remove them out of the path of dust? How much slack is in the wires?
. Has anybody taken noise measurements with the makita and dewalt?
I read enough to know that a water cooled spindle is quietest, but I am not ready for that. Maybe after a year, or so. Looking to understand which router spindle is quieter, and how much sound abatement I need )
