Just got my kit on Thursday and started to tinker with it today.....This will be my first CNC.....But I love my toys....Have 2 3D printers and one Laser cutter so I think it will fit right into the family.Image

Built a 4 foot by 4 foot table for it....

There've been a bunch of questions about assembling the frame for this --- looking forward to your photos.

I've been one of the ones asking....Lol.....I will try and document it the best i can but once i get working i tend to forget................For what im going to do i think im going to cut down the 1500mm rails to make it easier to enclose the machine......But still thinking on that for another couple of hours.....

Thanks
Mike

Hey good job indeed.

Yours is the first picture I see of a vacuum/dust collector and a quiet cut spindle setup. Since you have a couple of 3D printers I assume you printed the spindle and vacuum mounts? Would you mind very much sharing the files you used?

I don't have a 3D printer, but I'm thinking I could still mill the clamps out of HDPE.

Thanks a lot, and keep up the good work.
