CNC Machine - Okay to use?

Is the CNC okay to use? This note was left on the computer! It’s not dated and no one left a post stating that anything was wrong. IMG_4249|375x500

There was a report of some voltage in the frame. Danny measured it and it was 7 volts. I’m going to get a bus bar to ground the whole frame. Danny can elaborate more if he wants to.

Yes, absolutely. It turns out there was never a problem- an individual using a vacuum to collect dust experienced the wicked static charge buildup that comes with vacuuming up dust and got zapped touching the frame, and thought it had come from the machine. It was an honest mistake.

Heh, I’ve been there. Sawdust can generate a surprising amount of zap.
