Looking for a Smoothieboard but on a budget? Not afraid of a bit of hacking/ fixing? You can now buy broken Smoothieboards for a fraction of the price. They’ve got things like broken Ethernet, or a broken driver etc. They can be used as-is ( depending on your needs ), or fixed, depending on how courageous you feel
I can say these are a great deal, I previously got 5 faulty boards, and 4 of them are now running various 3D printers and CNC routers. The 5th board is waiting as a spare.
Nice! I’ll probably get one. Replacing a mosfet is easy.
I really wish I were better at in-circuit diagnosing.
The link seems to be down, are there still some broken Smoothieboards available?
