Anyone who has followed my Shapeoko journey over the last few months will know the road has been somewhat rocky. I’m not going to repeat the difficulties I’ve had with the machine or the rather poor support from Carbide 3D because it would take too long, but I think you’ll get the drift.
I no longer have a Shapeoko CNC machine (although I still have some accessories I’d like to shift here), so I won’t be on this forum very often, but I will ‘lurk’ from time to time.
Where has my machine gone? Well, it’s been disassembled, repacked and returned to the supplier for a full refund - including legal costs as I had to start Court proceedings before anyone started to take me seriously.
I’m going to continue in my chosen hobby, but take a different as far as my chosen machine is concerned, so I can actually determine if it’s a user error, as has been suggested many times, not least of which is this thread, where the symptoms are almost exactly the same as for my machine and has yet to be resolved. Good luck @mynamejefff!
It’s true I’ve learned a lot from the forum and have made a good number of friends, but there are one or two complete tossers on here. No names, no pack drills, but even suggesting this could lead to the thread being censored or deleted completed.
Here are two of my favourite quotes by Einstein:
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
So, stay safe fellow Makers, goodbye and good luck for the future,
