In Episode 12, I'm using the LinuxCNC converted MAHO 400E to convert to tapered gibs on the saddle.

Since my camera can do 4K video, I thought it would be good to celebrate the 25th episode in UHD. Bad mistake with a Gen 1 Zbook, and pretty slow DSL line. I took 8 hours to render the video, and another three to upload it. Back to HD 1080P for me.

Enjoy,

Hi Mark, love the build, I have in the past been able to do temporary repairs on older ribbon cables using the cores from solid conductor cat 5 cable . Soften the cable with a warm air gun, use a pin to create a hole above the conductor, and push the wire in with tweezers, however, this does not work on the newer super thin ribbon cables, but could you buy a ribbon cable connector, cut the cable right through, install it on the cut ends, and plug it back together?
