« Part 5: Delivery is a nightmare . . . Part 6 of Legacy Maverick 3x5 Gen. II series Part 7: Couple Quick Notes »

I reconfigured the layout of my shop so it will work with the Maverick CNC and my soon to have Hammer K3 winner 79×48”. I ran the 220v line on Sunday and got everything buttoned up. I like how it all fits. I am creating plans for a wall mounted computer cabinet that will also house my CNC bits and wrenches. Until then, I am using a rolling cart that another tool usually sits on.

I turned on the Maverick’s power and all the motors charged and locked up, like they are supposed to. I turned on Mach 3 and clicked the reset button. I then referenced the machine and warmed up the spindle. The spindle is water cooled and I could see the pump was working. It is super quiet when compared to a router and it is just awesome!

I hope to get some MDF and melamine tomorrow or Wednesday so I can cut my table tops and get ready for this weekend.
