Very nice, indeed! :)
I am just wiring a Voron 2.4R2, a small one.

admittedly I had to look that up. LOL  Are you using a raspberry Pi or converting it to Linuxcnc?

No, not LinuxCNC yes, but following development Scott and the gang are working on, so ... I would love to move to it though.
As for RPI, i have 2 collecting dust, i use laptops with Linux Mint and Klipper to run my printers.
RPI would crap out whenever taking a screenshot at 1920x1080 and sending it via Telegram Bot! Stopped the printing dead! I can not allow that. :)
I also do not like Klipper, way to much stuffed in it and to many workarounds and to many dependencies and to many ... everything.
But it does work, had 2 of my printers on for over 2 months, one errored out on it's own, while idle.

I had to go back to the beginning of the thread and refresh my memory because I have the same mill (still a manual). Really looking good. 
I really don't like the GX connectors, so much soldering (although I must say my new Hakko iron is an improvement).  

I have been using automotive QC connectors at the motor end. Crimp on and nice and light so they can hang in the air. First time around, I  mounted GX panel mount connectors at the motors to support the weight of the connector. It's just a shame they are not compatible with the standard colour coded crimp on spade connectors.

Get an TS-80P, that will change for sure.
I did, it did. :)
Just knowing it is ready in 20 seconds, running from a power bank or a Bosch battery, simply removed any latent lazy-ness.

​​​​​​Yeh, I looked at them. Went with Hakko as I could get it faster.
My ears plucked up when you said Bosch battery. Sometimes I need to solder on a vehicle so a corded one is a pain. 
​​​​​​And I have a lot of Bosch tools. This one looks interesting!

I am not the biggest fan of the GX connectors because you have to solder them and a standard soldering iron just heats the
crap out of the connector before the solder flows . That said I have a work around called Hako FR301 de-soldering iron.
it's the only thing I have that has enough thermal mass to heat the solder joint before the rest heat soaks.
I also up-rated my connectors to GX20-4 for the stepper motors.

Been a busy weekend . Although it doesn't look like much it should work well. It's amazing how fast you can
fill an electrical enclosure

Nice.  Tidy.

Especially like the double-stack over the power supply - those things always take up a ton of space.

Whats the board mounted on the left side?  Field wiring breakout?
