1. Aaaaand my CNC is dead. It coughed up magic smoke. A resistor blew up while trying to troubleshoot the problem of the non-moving and squealing Z Axis. It turned out to be a coil that squealed. The motor was conveniently behind the mainboard so I misinterpreted that as a faulty motor. I bought stepper motors for nothing. I can reuse them for something else. Like making a 3D printer from scratch but it won't be anytime soon.
    I contacted Amazon support and they offer a refund. So I bought a new one. The marketplace seller was uncooperative and didn't answered after a week of silence.
    I just ordered a replacement that is slightly cheaper from another seller.

    1. @adiwan At least that story had a good enough ending, even if it took a week for Amazon to step in and pimpslap someone who deserved a pimpslap.

      1. @drinkingpony It was an Amazon Marketplace item and only shipped by Amazon. So I had to contact the seller first and the seller had two days to reply. I waited a few days longer and contacted Amazon and they solved it immediately.
