    Those are very cool plans, jgro, You have made a major contribution to the CNC hobbiest world. Thanks for taking the time to draw up these plans.

    5 Stars to you.

    NOTE: To all those who download the plans. If you right click on the link and select "save target as" you will be able to save the plans instead of just opening them in your browser. I might suggest that the PDF be zipped so that it will automatically save instead of opening in a browser window.

    Im back again. I just wanted to say I just printed off those plans, and am EXTREMELY impressed with the work that you did.

    I laugh to myself about all the noise that happened in the open source forum, while the quiet achiever typed away and actually produced something.

    Thats a "TOUCHDOWN" jgro

    I went through a few iterations before I came up with what's in the plans. I estimated that it cost me about $400.00. That included a Xylotex controller and stepper motors that I bought from Ebay. I had a computer, monitor and router lying around. Maybe CNC Darren can give a better cost as he just built one from my plans http://www.cnczone.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6168

    Hi CNC Wana Bee, I just threw some numbers together and came up with around $300+ misc hardware and router. I went with the Hobby CNC 3 axis unipolar chopper drive and thier 80/oz motors, you have to solder the parts on the board but i didnt find it to hard to do. For a ready to run board it seems most people go with the Xylotex board. Jgro here is a pic of mine, the extended version. My brother got a sign job and we had to make the table a bit longer using 60" gas pipe. The bolts going thru the side frames push in on the gas pipe as I found that the gas pipe would flex out as it got close to the center of travel. here are a couple of pics and a completed sign minus the vinyl letters. I'm trying to work in a dust collector project while running these signs to hold the dust down a bit.

    the dust isnt to bad on small parts but on the large oval there is quite a bit. I dont think it would be as bad if I were cutting ply or something like that but MDF is a very fine dust and goes everywhere. I'll get some pics of the bolts next time i'm over there.

    some people build an enclosure around the machine to contain the dust inside of it and I think it would quiet it down a little. That way all you would need to do is clean out the enclosure. I have thought about doing that but ints in a wood working shop right now and the dust isnt a problem.

    I was thinking about buliding a plastic cage around the machine.
    what do you think about it?
    will it work?
