I got my Shapeoko (full kit) on Friday & have been fiddling with it as much as the girlfriend allows. I love it so much that I'd like to use it during those hours of the day when my neighbors don't like to hear drilling noises. From what i can tell, I'll need to replace my electronics & buy an extru...

First CNC attempt

I was watching the Youtube videos from the original incarnation of the Shapeoko & thought of this. Hopefully you get a kick out of it! Since the ship date is almost here, I can fess up to the first CNC I made. It's two scanners and a CD-ROM laser head mounted on a photo copy stand. All the pieces we...
