We shipped out the first six Mantis 9 machine kits yesterday to locations all around the world.
Thus far I've personally helped everyone that has put together a Mantis machine. But now the machines have flown the coop, so I created a series of 13 videos showing how to get the X, Y, and Z axes completely assembled. The next sequence of videos (in work) will show how to install the motors/leadscrews and leave you with a finished machine!
I've also uploaded photos of the A3982 stepper driver board, and the new 4 axis/spindle controller.
Enjoy the videos, and stand by for more to come.
