I have started this thread to allow anyone interested in following the build of a CAD-CUT machine. I am in the UK and therefore the machine will be converted to metric sizes.

I would in the future love to make this a hobby but for now that must wait I am building a Moody 54 sailboat and I need the router as a tool not a hobby I hope this turns out to be a quick build I am giving the whole thing to up and running 3 months.

There are many issues in respect to building this machine overhere and I shall be posting them as they come up.

A quick list is:
230v 50hz
Everyhing is metric and I must pay a premium for imperial
CE approvals. -- Don't Care

Can only purchase a plunge router YUCK!!!! I will smuggle one in HeHe

All software and drivers come from the USA

Well there is a start.

There is a decent spindle for your machine available over here, expensive though, check out the DeWalt DW627 over here (http://www.dewalt.co.uk/products.asp?lid=1&mktid=2&catno=DW627&hierarchyID1=1&hierarchyID2=62&hierarchyID3=66&bucketid=7&sid=1)
Hope this helps, if you don't want to import:)

It is £420 on amazon.co.uk but you could try shopping around, dunno if you will sabve much off of that price though. The only drawback to this router is a fixed speed of 18000 rpm.
