Just wanted to thank the team publicly for their incredible support.
I bought a S3 off of someone on the Shapeoko.com forum, and Fedex mangled the box and some of the parts. Even though they had nothing to do with the problem, Jessica and Ed made sure that I got everything I needed to get up and running and really took care of me.
My machine is running beautifully. Did my Hello World last week (on the kitchen table), moved it and just started cutting yesterday. Hopefully I’ll get sucked in enough to upgrade one day to the larger machine.
