  • I’ve noticed a few comments here lately from people who had trouble with the BED. Therefore, I am going to add my experience to the official record. I bought two BED’s in the past 3 months (about a month apart.) One of them worked perfectly, but the other behaved much like those described in posts below: choppy, inconsistent motion. Note that I have been able to precisely compare the two BED’s with the exact same motor and hook-up (NEMA 23, 1A and 7.4V per phase). Just prior to my posting this, the defective board went up in flames (literally). To whomever it may concern, it might be time to investigate whether a particular batch of BED’s is flawed.

No public wish lists :(
