I desperatly want to build one of these routers. Can anyone tell me what I need for materials,ie how much mdf in what thicknesses and also the plastic as well. I have a cnc'd mill that I can make the parts myself but need this info to get started. Thanks a lot for your help! I will start a build thread once I get moving. If you guys answer today, I will run to home depot for the mdf.

Thanks
Walt

Try looking on ebay using UHMW and HDPE seperately as a search.
Here is one that I found.
