I did a minor tweak to the Shapeoko XL CNC. Cleaning up wiring, connectors, cable track to keep the dust away. The price of woodworking on a CNC is always lots of dust. I’d like to keep dust off of collections of fine cable, which the Shapeoko has plenty of. So, I covered them up. About 30 minutes with various sizes of split loom cable cover and it’s done. I did a review for the December 2017 issue of Popular Woodworking magazine. It’s a well designed and executed machine that a great place to start for new digital woodworkers and makers. And, I see plenty of possibilities for enhancements. Here’s a YouTube video of covering exposed wires.
