This video is a review of the Longmill MK2 CNC router made by Sienci Labs. The video covers all aspects of the MK2 CNC router… how it’s built, the drive system, the Longmill assembly, the working (or cutting area) and much more about the CNC Machine.
We will also cover the gSender control software as well as the touch probe for setting your CNC router bits, and the laser attachment for your Longmill CNC router.
The Longmill MK2 is an excellent entry-level CNC router that makes CNC projects adequately. Many CNC creators have used the machines for years in a home CNC business.
Not mentioned in this video is the dust boot. This is needed to control sawdust and is available from Longmill. See below for a video walk-thru when you order yours. It is discussed there.

A NOTE ABOUT BALL SCREWS VS LEAD SCREWS
Ball screws require routine maintenance because sawdust will get inside the ball-bearing housing. Without routine maintenance, the ball screw will start to bind. You can have issues with the machine and not realize the ball screw is the problem.
Lead screws are exposed and easy to maintain. They also are far less expensive to replace if necessary.
Lead screws offer 0.001" tolerances which are more than enough for woodworking.
