Hi Folks

I had just settled into a routine of working in the shop for at least a little while everyday when I smoked my CNC machine. I just turned it on one morning and plumes of white smoke started to waft out of the components cabinet. I was wondering if anyone in the London Ontario Canada area might know of anyone that I could ask to take a look (that wouldn’t require me to sell a kidney to pay the bill). Most CNC repair guys are used to working with 100 thousand dollar machines and charge hundreds of dollars just to show up.

I sent some pics to the manufacturer (who has been great!) and have narrowed it down to the transformer, one of the gecko drives or the capacitor, but I don’t really know how to check. Any suggestions would be great.


-- The CNC machine can either produce the work of art you imagined, or very decorative firewood.
