Just to make people aware, the inline power switch (#30359-01) does fit the power supply barrel plug that comes in the Shapoko 2 kit. However, it does not fit onto the jack in the wire that comes in the kit. Either I got a defective switch, or a different barrel plug is needed to accept this jack.

Bart Dring
Eric, Sorry about that. The Shapeoko uses a 2.5mm center conductor and the switch uses the more standard 2.1mm center conductor. I updated this project and added a note to the product page for the switch. We will contact you about a refund. Bart

Hey Bart. Quick question regarding the Microswitches. Are there any instructions on how to install/use them with the Shapeoko? I want to add those as limiters. Thank you Murat

Got a kit and the upgrade parts, just the colt plate missing. Guess I can use the drill that in the kit to start with. In the pictures above it's a fan mounted. That fan I can't see anywhere in this list or in the kit. Is it missing in the list or should it be a part of the kit? Morten Norgard
Morten Norgard
Bart Dring
Morten, I am not sure why that was not on the list. I added it. Sorry for the inconvenience. Bart

Same with the 5 mm bolts and nuts, also needs to be added. Motors have other attachments. Also bolts for rollers must be turned and distance washers added t fix the motors.

Hi What about the wheel that is fitted on the 3 motors for the drag chain? The spindles have a dif. diameter. Drill them or should it be another wheel?

The Shapeoko full kit is listed in the build, but not selected (presuming it's not included in the price). Can the table-only kit be used since the full kit includes many parts replaced by items in this kit? I am starting from scratch and would like to keep costs low/not have a pile of unused parts.

@Bart Dring: I'm a newbie, what are the differences or benefits between the TinyG Controller and the Arduino+gShield? which is better? why?, thanks for the help.

The link for the fan does not work, how do I get one from the gshield enclosure? And one of the video's shows the drag chain installed on an aluminum bracket, i don't see that here,
