works better than advertised !!
Instructions are careful about how you orient the workpiece (rot Y or rot X etc) but the reality is I use x-rot and move the angle of the spindle all over the place. Control board install is very straight forward

I've had my Shark CNC for about two years. I have replaced all three of the cards at least once each.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Harvey, the 4th Axis Control Board for CNC Shark Item #: 50629 is for the HD3 models. I received this circuit separately from the 4th axis kit and it came with 3 pages of driver card installation instructions, I gather you didn't received them. I searched the Next Wave Automation website --> under "DOWNLOADS" menu --> located "4th AXIS" --> located "CNC Shark 4th Axis Motor Control Module Installation Guide CLICK HERE" which will take you to the instructions, where Figure 6 is probably the rectangular heatsink that you have. The instructions I received with card are more detailed and I could not locate them on the website. Let me know if the information on the website is sufficient or if there is a way I can get you the more detailed instructions. Otherwise you will have to contact Next Wave Automation, check the website for contact information and request the instructions. Hope this helps.
