There is a new update for the FT-5 manual but it's not yet on the FT drive.
You can get it early from here.
It is labeled as v10. It is marked as a draft, so keep that in mind.
you mentioned V10 is just a draft, i hope this means still under construction lol i find it a little odd they would update the doc with a line(PG 44-19) that reads "Note: The idler has been updated since this picture" why not update the pic while there instead of pointing out the error? Did i miss something?
Sorry, i should add my disclaimer.. Been working as an EE for 30+ years so it is safe to say i am "extremely detail oriented" aka anal I hope it is ok to say that about my self... certainly not a secret and i would not want to offend anyone with my ramblings... Trying to keep myself entertained while waiting for my FT5
I did not look at the manual. I'm just reporting that they updated it.
i sent that and the typo in the parts list to folgertech. hopefully they will correct it in the final v10 version but small potatoes in my mind...
i got confirmation from folgertech they are checking on the typo's i found. very cool reply.
I am currently working on finishing the CNC manual. After that, I will be going through the entire FT-5 manual while building an up to date kit and fixing/updating/clarifying everything the best that I can. Stay tuned for the user input thread when I start that process.
