Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. This is my first post.
I looking for the best plans to build a CNC Router. I have done some searching and have been overwhelmed with the amount of free and plans that must be purchased. I am looking for plans that are easy to follow and complete. I would like them to tell me everything I need including things like motors and possibly where to get them. This is my first CNC anything so I need alot of guidance. Here are some links to ones I have seen. Tell me which to stay away from and possible other I have not seen.

Solsylva Plans http://www.solsylva.com/cnc/1aplanshome.html
Big Bear CNC http://www.bigbearcnc.com/
This look realy nice, but the plans are really expensive and it looks like making the machine is to. Is this something I should be leaning towards.

******* Addition Info *********
After further research I have have set my budget to stay under or around $700. I'd like to be able to mill peices say 20" x 20" from materials like wood, plexi, and soft metals.
It also seems to me that the Solsylva Plans do not have enough information relating the the electronics part that I will need.
I also want to add that i'd like to use a router like a Porter Cable or Dewalt instead of a Dremel.
Further down in the posts I have posted pictures of examples of thing i'd like to accomplish iwth my machine.
