Danny's Corner

E-stop

Slow progress on things, but that's probably because I lost quite a bit of time recovering after "a late shift" as my mom calls it. That sort of down time means I can just play on the laptop. Been working on various bits of brackets and such for the electronics that run the Shapeoko. This is probably the first one I'm happy with so far. It's a simple emergency stop box. 

Some more refinements will probably be made. I'm still trying to make it as small as possible. I may reverse this part to shave off a few more millimeters.

There isn't much to it though. Two plugs that help shuttle the electrons in and out, with a big fat red switch for when things go south. It could have been smaller if I had some snap-in power receptacles. Ah well. This'll do just fine.
