Dont get me wrong, you can post where ever you want, I'm not the moderator. Just pointing out thatfrom your pictures I don't see any resemblence to anything in the plans unless you have a different version then the ones I got
This isn't in any way slamming you, you may be selling yourself short on your own design by not creating a forum that brings it front and center. You clearly put a lot of work in re-engineering if you used the plans to the point it is clearly a different CNC machine. Between the gearing alone you have greatly changed the performance characteristics of the machine that a majority of us are building to the point of any feedback you give may not be useful to the general build and plans for anyone to benefit from.
Luckily these posts go to my phone so I can see what Mike says next!!
