    I ordered 4 pounds of sand. I’ll see how much coverage that gives me and go from there.

    Thanks for re-posting the links. I don’t think the Sysiphus public drop box exists anymore. I’ve seen a few links posted, but they’re all dead. I’ve checked out the new community tracks section, and it looks promising. I should probably start learning to make my own.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I had already verified the subnet and tried connecting my phone to both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands without success. I had also installed a network app that has ping capability and showed all devices on the LAN. No joy.

    So this morning I powered down the router, phone, and SandBot all at the same time, then powered them all back on. Now it’s working (though the app doesn’t show the amount of storage on the SandBot–I have successfully formatted and installed a 32GB card).

    On an unrelated note–does a 3-foot table really require 10 pounds (5 bags) of sand? Sisyphus recommends 3 12oz bags of sand for their 3-foot tables.

    On another unrelated note–do you know if anyone downloaded the full Sisyphus BOX folder of designs before they took it offline?

    Thanks for all the work you and Rob have put into designing, building, and documenting these tables. I can’t wait to start the carpentry work on mine.

    I’m in the process of building mine. I got the hardware and firmware working this weekend. Now I’m tweaking the endstop mounts to get the most accurate homing I can. I went to a community woodshop over the weekend to start planning the table build. I have some definite thoughts on what I want the finished product to look like.

    I’ll be happy to provide the benefits of my very recent experience. I’m <username> at gmail

    I ordered them from Amazon on July 30. They’re shipping from China. Based on the current tracking information, I expect to receive them by the end of next week.

    I’m not in a big hurry at this point. I’m still waiting to receive the laser-cut parts (end of this week), and I haven’t started soldering the PCB yet. My plan is to get the electronic and mechanical stuff working, then figure out how and where to build the table. I sold most of my woodworking tools when I downsized from a house to a condo prior to a 3-year stint in the Philippines. At this point I’m thinking of renting time in a local maker space.

    I ordered these but haven’t had a chance to test them yet. They’ll take a bit of modification to the mounts to make them work. Since I’m not ready to test them at the moment, I’m probably going to wait for the others that appear to be an exact match to arrive from China rather than work on modifying the mounts.

    Thanks. I found those shortly after I asked the question, but nobody has them in stock now. I bought a couple different similar optical switches with the intention of modifying the mounts to fit. Then I found these that look to be a match. It will take a few weeks to get them, but I’m not in a real hurry.
