      The more I use this the more I like it

      Posted by tom fitzsimons on Jul 5th 2022

      I have transitioned from a tinyG controller along with the ChiliPeppr web based controller. I find this much more convenient (after a small learning curve), with much better arc and circle cuts, even at 1/8 stepping.

      Controller and customer service

      Posted by tom fitzsimons on Jun 23rd 2022

      Ordered this and the limit switchesto replace a tinyG controller. Installation was simple and easy. Initial controller didn't work. Contacted customer service and had a replacement in 2 days - no hassle, quick response. This does circles and arcs way better than the tinyG. I'll order from them again. Great to deal with and really good product.
