Default SR-44 controller cabinet lock

My SR-44 is uncrated, sitting in my shop and I'm waiting for the electrician. In the meantime, I've been reading, working with VCarve, and checking out the machine.

Out of curiosity, I tried opening the controller cabinet. It's either locked or very difficult to open and I hesitate to try any harder to open it as I might break the handle. Did you get a key for the lock on the controller cabinet? The handle has a key slot but I haven't found a key.

Flat head screw driver is your key.

Yep.. the ole screwdriver... I had the same issue.. I do think that this information would be included somewhere.. just one of the little details that no one seems to fix though it is so easy and so necessary to know.. I'm totally happy with my machine, but just wonder why something something so simple is passed over...

Yup...screwdriver. It's not so much a lock to keep folks out as it's a lock to prevent it from being opened inadvertently...like in the middle of a job which would shut the machine down "really fast" due to the micro-switches. I just grab a "stubby" flat head screwdriver that's in a drawer nearby when I want to open the case up to clean out accumulated dust...which happens despite the "filters", etc.
