The postal service has been pretty nice to me the past week. So far the only thing I'm missing the get the laser up and running is a replacement tube, which should be here around the second week of March. As of right now I have some LED strip lighting installed in the cutting bay, and my RAMPS module is all wired in with a small quickie jumper board to get my endstops set.
I removed the ribbon cable connector and soldered new endstop wiring directly to the board. The stepper motor wires were also lengthed, and everything tucked nicely into some 7mm x 7mm drag chain from Amazon.
Ok, I think that brings the buildlog up to date. Time to get back to work. :)
