OK im going to start off with info about myself here.
I am a licensed electrician/commercial developer/ vinyl signmaker when needed/ and all around DIYer.
I have 0 CNC experiance except for my vinyl cutter for doing signs.
My father has a mill and 2 lathes 1 small 1 big ( 24" swing 6' bed)
and i have a small lathe i recently aquired hot wired it to work but never really used it yet( no need). so i can look to dad for milling lathe info..
I am using Hack's Plans found here
http://studysession.com/cnc/8020-CNCRoutercad.pdf

They are designed to use the 80/20 bearings and has a 2'x3' cutting area. I'm Going to stretch the x? out to 4' to make a 2'x4' table.
im thinking of using it for making signs in foam wood and acrylics.
Maybe some other uses.(this is a toy) this will not be for production use. as i dont do anything production really my vinyl cutter gets use 2-3 times a month. Well lets begin..

Is there a reason you are going with standard threaded rod instead of an acme thread, which will five you faster rapids and more torque?
