This is just a note to let you know that I am waist deep in building the JOE-2006. I am doing everything by hand as I have no CNC equipment. I made my own breakout board and drivers using the toner transfer method of making the circuit boards and drilling and soldering them by hand. By the way I started working on that project in July 06. I have all the materials on hand to build my power supply. Kudos to Pminmo.com for their driver designs.Then I started looking for a router design. I could not imagine one better than Joe's. One year later and I am beginning to see the project come together. It has been such fun to do it all myself (except for the design, which is really great). I have worked on this in my spare time, around hospitalization for Guillian-Barre syndrome, disability retirement because of Alzheimer's, and nerve damage from 2 attacks of Guillian-Barre. I always look forward to doing something else on the project. I intend to put big red flashing lights that flash anytime power is applied to my router. I don't want to forget it is on and rout away any of my body parts, they all have enough trouble. I have read, and read, and reread posts about drivers, motors, power supplies, Joe builder's posts, these keep me motivated and answer questions I am too dumb to ask. Your successes keep me believing I can do it too. Thanks to the entire CNC community and to Joe in particular for designing something a beginner can actually build. Keep up the wonderful work.
