First off I'd like to say thanks to everyone on this site. I've seen alot of good ideas. I've been looking at this site for awhile know and seems like I learn something new every time.

I'm building mine to build my own parts. I've have been building my own parts for my farm and its turned into a business. The parts I started out building were to make my life easier and people have seen them and wanted me to make the parts for them. I have my engineering degree and have spent the last 6 years programming and running a router and laser.

The electronics are from CandCNC. I choose them because of their open design and the ability to add on components. They should arrive in the next couple of weeks. The machine design is taken from a bunch of machines that I have run or seen over the years.

The router bed is installed right now. I'm in the process of building the plasma bed. I'm going to use a Hypertherm 45 for the plasma and a Milwaukee 3-1/2 hp router. I'll add more as time permits. Sorry if the pictures aren't the greatest.
