Thinking about starting down this road with a kit and plans....but before I invest the money, I have a few questions:
1) Is any specialized tooling required?
2) Is this machine capable of cutting .080 6061-T6 sheet and drilling .25" sq 6061-T6 stock?
3) Is this machine capable of 3D routing (IE sign-making)?
4) What stepper motor sizes do the plans call for? (I have several NEMA 34 motors laying about.)
5) Ball screw or rack and pinon?
