Mount the Electronics
Now that the table is secured, you can mount the
electronics inside the KReduCNC frame. Start by removing
all the connectors on the controller.
Next, reattach the parallel cable to the controller. Drill a
5/32” hole in the position shown in Figure 9, then add a
#6 washer to a #6-32 x 1” machine screw and insert it
through the hole. Secure with a #6-32 hex nut and lock
washer as shown. The actual position of the machine screw
in not critical.
Secure the cable on the parallel port to the screw with
a cable clamp as in Figure 10. Use another #6-32 hex nut
and lock washer to secure the clamp. Here, I am using a
3/8” cable clamp.
Cable clamps can be purchased from most home
centers, and are available in the electrical section.
Attach the board holding the controller to the bottom
side of the cleats (Figure 11). Use six #6 wood screws to
secure the board. Drill 3/32” pilot holes to make the job
On the power supply panel, add two #6-32 x 1”
machine screws to the positions shown in Figure 12. As
before, add clamps and secure with #6-32 hex nuts and
lock washers as shown in Figure 13.
Secure the panel to the bottom of the cleats with six
