Thanks for the praise, but I'm not really doing anything novel. I'm standing on the shoulders of those that actually wrote and maintain the GRBL and bCNC projects. I just read up on it and put the components together. Those people in the open source community are the real innovators on this project.
I am an industrial machine designer/engineer, so guess I have a technical leg up than most when it comes to machine integration, but I'm no programmer.
As for the chips, I can attest at this time it makes a hell of a lot of wood dust.
