Default New Stinger II Setup

When a new Stinger II SR-44 arrives, what is involved in the setup? I understand it will need to be wired up for power, dust collection hooked up, and the machine itself needs to be leveled. I'm looking beyond those obvious and critical steps. Once it's able to powered up, what are the next steps?

Does the machine need to be adjusted? Does the spindle need to be trammed? Do I need to walk through a series of steps to make sure everything is square and parallel? Or can I just power it up and start making wood chips?

Any checklists, books, or videos I can reference for these questions?

Thanks!

You might read my two threads below that talk about a lot of what you ask about, but in general, you'll need to setup electrical per the prep guide for your specific machine's configuration (spindle size, etc), compressed air (if you have the counterbalance) and dust collection. You will need to check over your machine carefully once it's out of the crate and in your shop. Be sure to check the belt tightness on the X-axis motor behind the spindle. I had no need for tramming. I pretty much set it up and started working (slowly) as I learned.

Jim has great comments. Iím just adding a little.

During shipment things move. Spend an hour looking at stuff. Wiggle some things. Be sure to check every electrical connection to be sure they are secure in their terminals.

Don't bond the hose to the cnc machine. Bond it to the dust collector power supply.
