#### The Beeping
Your machine will occasionally beep at you (!) this is not my choice: the 20a 'ESC' (electronic speed controller) that turns the spindle motor around is an off-the-shelf part originally made for drones: it is doing the beeping. It beeps when it initializes, and it beeps consistently when it is sad about the way it initialized: it expects a 'zero' signal when it first recieves power, if the controller is requesting that it operate at any RPM above zero when you turn the power on, it will be upset. To fix this, turn the spindle RPM to zero and cycle power.
#### Installation
To install software needed to communicate with and run clank, you first need to download `node.js` [at this link](https://nodejs.org/) - get the LTS version, not the latest.
