There is also now a zener diode clamping the input voltage to protect the 12v DC-DC converter, just in case it was Roger's diagnosis of the controller failure that happened. I can't wait to test that DC-DC! Either way, it COULD have been the point of failure. It's really nice to eliminate it as a possibility in the future.

I made a full scale sketch of the mosfet driver board strip, and figured how many mill cranks every etch will be, so now I just need to quit typing and go out there and do it! Well, I'm hanging out with my son right now, and mills and 1 year olds don't mix.
kits and boards
