Default New Panther 404

Hi All,
Received the new machine last week and have it positioned and connected to power (disconnect switch- 220v, single phase, 40 amp).

As noted in pics, used the tow truck at shipper’s dock method as described by other forum members. Also bought the car dolly’s at harbor freight, also as suggested on the forum. Without the dolly’s, movement of the crate/cnc would have been most difficult.

So this morning I powered up the machine and it immediately turned itself off. G-code on WinCNC said something about e-stop button...couldn’t get it back on after trying several things.

FIRST LESSON learned (a great safety feature by CAMaster)—-you other soon to be owners please take note —-close the doors on the control cabinet before turning the machine on! There is what I call a proximity switch on the door of the control panel. If the switch is not made the machine will not run. This keeps us humans out of the control panel and also keeps dust out.

Thanks CAMaster for building such a great machine and thanks forum members for all your input and advice.

Congratulations Aubrey! Looking forward to seeing what you make with your new Panther. I would like to buy a Panther or Cobra of my own eventually, so curious to see how you like yours.

Off-topic, but I have a friend who moved from San Diego to Boerne and as far as I can tell, he loves it there.

I hope you enjoy your Panther and have a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Gary,

Itís taken me two years to finally pull the trigger. Lots of research and some false starts. I can tell you that this forum is awesome with lots of helpful folks and tons of knowledge. The machines are great. If you have any specific questions, please PM me.

Congrats Aubrey!

Please please please take more pictures! All angles. Camaster lacks the pics and the videos. You're going to do vids RIGHT!?

Im looking into the Panther 404 also.
