Lets See Whats inside

Just a few shots to document the innards of the machine. Whats really fantastic is that I found a 3rd party stepper motor driver. This should make motor drive interface at least possible to sort out. Really, I was expecting to find some proprietary hardware controlling the stepper motors, this find is a huge bonus. There is some custom hardware for the spindle motor controller, however at least one of the chips gives a great clue as to how the board might be set up. Some images to clarify the insides.
