I am trying to build a CNC machine from the ground up. I am currently in the table design.

If there is anybody that has built a cnc before or know about building one. Please let me know. I would love to talk to you.

Mill or lathe?

I didn't build my mill from ground up. I fitted a small mill with a kit and built (assembled) my electronics.

Here's link to some good info:

Click on the CNC mill link at the top of the page.

I have started a build on a lathe. Don't know when I'll finish it (I'm real slow).

I can't help with that but........,

Most of the routers builds on the zone are gantry style machines. Some made of wood and some made of metal (alum or steel).

Hope you have a happy build,
Jack
