Hello all, I'm a newbie to this site. But have surfed around for months.
I love this site, and I'm impressed with all the work here.
Now i made up my mind that i will try to participate in this wonderful hobby!
But I have a lot of questions, even though i have read about nearly all the machines here. It's so much information here, and therefor i have become a bit frustrated trying to decide what kind of machine to build.
I will mostly make wooden things, but also want to make some things out of plastic and aluminum.
My questions is:
What kind of motors to use? Thinkin about Hobbycnc kit, but will it be fast and powerful enough for some bigger projects? It's the cheapest one though?
Should I start with a MDF machine? And after that make another one in aluminum from the first machine? Aluminum is stronger, true?
What should i actually build for best and most accurate performance?
Is the gecko hardware something to get for the first machine or just go for it after i have build the second machine? What will be the most reasonable in price and performance?
I would love some ideas on both Hobbycnc and gecko. Even other products.
I will after i start the production, make a blog or website with the construction, day by day basis.
Sorry for my English, and I will love the posts from u guys, so I can get started...
