Default Purchased a Chinese 6090 router

I sold the Bobs E4 cnc I had. The gantry was not rigid enough to do any real carving. I work with a lot of hard wood, and that machine was jumping too much. I purchased a Chinese 6090 4 axis solid aluminum machine that is run with Mach3, 1500w water cooled spindle. The new cnc is still in it’s box, I did not assemble it yet because we had some foundation work done on the garage where my work shop is. I will be building a bench for it this week and hopefully be back in business next week. I will post some pictures after it is assembled. The work is 32” x 24” And am anxious to get it up and running.

It's always a good day when you wake up. Don't fret the small stuff, enjoy every minute of life you have.

Nice, Karen. So 4 axis - it has a rotary axis with it? Or XYZ and Y has two steppers?

It has a rotary axis "A" that clamps to the board.

I can't wait to use it and have a lot to learn about Mach3.

If you have a water cooled spindle, what coolant/antifreeze did you add to your water?

I was thinking of using the nontoxic kind that is used in RVs and campers.

I found that there is a huge problem getting technical customer service with the Chinese manufacturers.

The people I purchased it from do not know anything about assembly, or Mach3 configurations.

I had to do a lot of research for the right configurations.

There is a lot of information on the 6040 CNC but nothing on the 6090 CNC.

I guess this is a new model.

We are going to re-face my kitchen cabinets and needed a large work area to run some flourishes into my kitchen cupboard doors and drawer fronts.

For cooling, I use a 5 gal bucket filled with 1 gal RV nontoxic antifreeze plus 3 gal distilled water.
I believe the only difference between 6090 and 6040 is the table size.

I do the same as Dan for ours, Karen. Except I have a 7 gallon container with 4 gallons of distilled water and 1 gallon of RV antifreeze. I also added the silver microbial strip. My pump has a filter on the inlet side and everything goes through a radiator with cooling fan.
