Chip covers!

by Bruce Bergman

It has to be said - cover that belt and pulley on the stepper, or chips will make a mess and shred the belt.

Did you ever make a Vacuform table? A sheet of 1/8" or 3/32" clear Lucite would be perfect for that, and a simple wood block form to drape it over.

And hang a sheet of Visqueen in front of the drivers and power supplies on the temporary backboard of insanity, at least till you lock down the design and start on a proper enclosure. Same thing, major havoc if the chips fling Just Right...
