I have had my 3xxl since November and I have had a great time making projects and learning a lot.
My first project, which seems to be a rite of passage, was my tool tray. I got the design from http://www.cutrocket.com
The first thing I realized is that dust collection is paramount. At first I just hovered over my projects with my vacuum hose. That got old very fast and I ordered the suckit dust boot. That led to another mini project of making the adapter ring for my vacuum hose to the dust boot.
To control everything a little better I made a control box, using the shapeoko to do the cutouts and lettering of course… This is version 1 of the wiring.
My wiring was not optimal and the main power plug and power cable were not the right rating and the plug eventually melted
That brought me to the control box wiring version 2 which is much more robust, rated to 15A.
I built a frame around the mill to hold the lights, and dust collection hose.
And finally added a new tool and bit holder exactly where I wanted it (finally!) No more scattered tools and bits.
Thanks to everyone here on the forums for the great ideas and information!
