My Makermade CNC Adventure: What’s In Those Hardware Bags?

My Makermade CNC Adventure:  What’s In Those Hardware Bags?

After I did the last post, we got a lot of questions about those mysterious little hardware bags. They’re just labeled 1-8, and yes, it can be hard to know what’s what! This is exactly why it’s so great that MakerMade has given me this assignment. I’m seeing everything with the eyes of a novice and the things that are confusing to you are confusing to me too! I sat down, combed through the instructions, and through process of elimination, and deductive reasoning, sorted it all out. It took me awhile, and now that’s something that nobody else will ever have to suffer through! I’ve even identified a few components that are no longer needed, and made some suggestions for components to add. So here’s what’s what in the hardware bags:
