Question (WOODWEB Member) :
I would just like to take a moment and advise/warn everybody that has air conditioners or cooling fans on their CNC Machines to not let anybody just blow off your CNC tables as all that dust gets into the fan bearings and sooner or later the bearings will seize and you will have a fire. Keep the filters clean and open up the cabinet every once in a while and you will be surprised at how much dust gets past the filters. The picture is of the $4000.00 air conditioner off of the control. No damage was done to the control or anything else but this could’ve been a disaster.
From Contributor J:
Thanks for the reminder. I just taped your post to our CNC cabinet for the guys to read.
