Just thought I would place a quick post here.
I have a been a bit quiet here for a while as I have been busy with another diy cnc machine that has its own forum, far away from here in another land .
Some people here in the past have questioned the design and seem to have written it off. It is a very capable machine and will perform as accurately as it has been built and as accurately as the plans are followed.
I could go on and on but I will just post some pics instead. The first is just for fun...
And the second is for reference. Total size is 165 x 26 mm and text is 2.5 mm high. Both of these were cut on the same machine.
Good luck to all with their builds and keep an opened mind. I had no idea my journey would take me the way it has when a friend and I built my first machine (not sure when but the pictures in my galley were posted in June 2005 so it was sometime before then). Now some years later I have 4 cnc machines the largest having a cutting area of 3839 X 1316 mm. CNC is a disease that gets worse with time. Make sure you either get it cured or get a really big shed, I don't think there is any other option.
