well after thinking about things and drawing on my desk i noticed i am sure a 12x24 will work fine. i know i know everyone wants a huge table right from the get go but i was thinking 2foot x 2foot was small but when looking at it laid out the 12x is fine. now i guess the question is will these motors work for what i am wanting to do. also how many people have used 8020 in thier construction and used the slides they sale?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...00471&tc=photo thats what i am wanting to use both in the gantry the y double stacked for support and cross bracing and on the x and cross bracing on the table.
total im looking at a rough 156" of stock +10% of waste. thats just for the table and gantry the gantry will be 12" from slide to top and then of course the y will be 6" so two stacked on the short side for 6" of cross brace. do you all think this wil be sturdy enough for milling soft alum?
and thank you all for such a great site.
