Cutting lots of 'widgets' for the wife and kids ! :D

That's beautiful! Post more if you got em ;-)
I've been busy the last few days, a Mustang restoration emergency. Trying to fix somes things up before the buyer comes over (Mustang must go before I start the CNC router). I've only read the CNC plans once but they look great. Can't wait to really start it. I hope mine ends up looking as good as yours. WOW!

Hardmill, Sam - Thanks for the kind words..... Its great to hear after all the work ! Took me a while to get them scanned but the pictures look way better than the ones my digital camera took ....


Sam - Im glad you are happy with the plans - did you get the parts list I emailed you ??

Yes, I got the parts list. Very nice. That will help allot!

BTW, what would think about me adding metal wheels (rollers) on the bottom of the four legs. If they could be locked and not move I would think that would be OK wouldn't it?

P.S. Dude! They gave you your own forum! Too cool. How many people have bought your plans (http://www.inshorepowerboats.com/cnc%20stuff/CNCROUTER.htm) so far? I told you everyone would want them. It's a beast machine.

I would skip the wheels. I made a little jig to slide under each end with caster wheels ( HEAVY duty) - I can use a floor jack to lift the end, slide the rig under it - and bingo cart it away.....

The machine is too big to have wheels ......

Yes - my own forum....... yes cool.......

Funny, it doesn't look that heavy painted yellow!
:D


I'll be starting mine in about a week, maybe two. I bought a power supply today, 57 volts at 30 Amps. I figure that's enough. Can't wait!

ninewgt,
How much did you actually spend in the making of the machine?
Did you used surplus parts? And how difficult is to find all the parts needed in the project?

I spent about 8000 dollars which included a computer, CAD software, CAM software, and some tools.........

All my parts were new. Finding the parts was simply a matter of research......... not hard to find parts - hard part was figuring out what ones to use - thats why I started selling the plans because so many people asked me about it !

I got the computer, CAD software, and CAM software...how much do I expect to spend on the cnc table itself ? could you give a price range?

I know someone just finished one for about 5000.

You can build it for between 5-6000.

I was wondering where you source your bits to be able to mill the 4 inch foam?

Thanks.

I am curious as to if there is a lot of machined parts need for the CadCut Router. I am looking several plans currently. Data-Cut being one and seems that it has alot of machined parts which would be alot of out sourcing and cost for me. Just looking for info as it is hard to tell by pics.

Thanks

I am in the process of building my gantry. My table is roughly the same size as yours. 5ftx10ft cutting area, 6ftx12ft table. Im curious what you built your gantry span (horizontal bridge portion) out of? Square aluminum rectangle tube? What dimensions? My current design I am considering using 6x6x1/4" square tubing for the span with the same pillowblock/shaft setup as yours. I am concerned that 6x6x1/4" may not be strong enough considering for the span as it is about 7ft 4 in long. The ends are very sturdy and fixed, holding up 3 sides of the square tubing (leaving the top exposed). The gantry holds up a 20lb z axis, oxy-torch, plasma torch, all the hoses and wires as well as a cat track or igus.

My vertical columns that hold up the horzontal span are definately strong enough. They are too 6x6x1/4"aluminum but heavily reinforced with cross bracing. the pillow blocks holding the vertical columns are 18 inches apart making it very stable.

Opinions? Input is much appreciated like always especially from all you hobbyists and you ninwgt as I much adore your machine. My machine is a LOT heavier than yours (capable of cutting a 5ftx10ftx7" plate of steel).
