Taig cnc machine

I scored a great deal on a Taig, a micro cnc machine.  I was looking forward to learning how to mill and figured this would be the way to go as it would have far more capability than a manual mill.

It’s a big mess of parts, but so far I got it to jog back and forth with the computer using the Linux cnc controller, emc2.  The plan is to eventually put it in a nice enclosure. 

The unit came with a 24volt power supply, but I learned you want to higher voltages for faster speeds.  So, the 24v is being replaced with a 48v linear regulated supply.
