Hello!

I have an Amicus with the advanced control panel that I bought about 6 months ago. I am having a hell of a time getting it to securely mount to the table. The distance between the ledge that is meant to rest on the table and the highest point of the under table mounting arms is far longer than the actual distance between the ledge and the bottom of the table. I have tried putting some books under the ledge to make up the difference, but then the side attachments are too high to stick to the corners of the table.

I have a 1" solid top table, moderate quality.

There must be something I am missing here because it seems like it just won't mount to my table.

Hi. I just received this robot yesterday and joined this forum and found your post since I too thought the robot should attach more securely.
These are issues I had and solutions I found.

1) Robot was too rocky back to front because the curved arms that extend under the table weren't making contact with the underside of the table. I think this is the same thing you described? I stuck a thin piece of board to the underside of table with double-sided tape and now those arms make contact and the whole robot is level and no longer tilting back slightly. I have to assume the robot was engineered and calibrated to be level and not tilting back to front.

2) Like many tables, the corners of my table have a hard plastic insert. Mine are curved slightly so the plastic corner pieces of the catch net would not stay down. I pasted on a piece of the supplied velcro to each corner of the table but it was not strong enough. Two possible solutions; use appropriate clamps found at at any big box hardware store to clamp the corner piece to the table (best approach if you will be traveling and using your machine on various tables); or as I did, buy velcro strips and cut them such that they run from the velco on the plastic corner net piece, around under table where you can either mount a strip of adhesive velcro of opposite gender, or screw down a piece of opposite velcro. My table happens to have screws at just the right spot under there, so I poked a hole in the velcro, ran the screw through it and put screw back in.

My balls arrive tonight I hope. So I will be playing with the robot this weekend.
I expect some learning issues but hopefully most are covered somewhere in this forum.

Good Luck
M

I think your answers are good, but I am disappointed that a $1600 dollar robot doesn't have a better mounting system to a table. It seems pretty crazy that one wouldn't have a more adjustable mounting system.

To resolve the Amicus not rocking, I stuck felt furniture pads under the table where the mounts are.

About the mounting of the control unit, to me it was straightforward. Maybe since I have a butterfly table (19mm)? I can't really visualize what the OP's issues with the mount. I do realize the problem if table sides are too thick for the mount.

I attached a piece of wood under the table with a dual side tape. The optimal thickness of the table is 24-32mm according to Amicus support.
