Thanks Will. Your documentation work helped me get through my Shapeoko 2 build successfully, quickly, and with minimum frustrations. By being able to quickly get everything put together and working quickly, you are able to reach the point of feeling like you accomplished something and then gives you the confidence to delve deeper into the CNC world. I believe there are a lot of people who have tried to get into CNC and end up giving up after losing interest because of all the time and expense it takes to design and build a CNC machine from scratch and with little knowledge of how to go about it. Thanks to Edward, Will, Inventables, and the entire Shapeoko community, the initial hurdle of making your own CNC machine is now a much easier goal to reach. From someone who has had a few failed attempts at getting into DIY CNC over the last decade, this is truly a remarkable thing and I appreciate it greatly!

I think this guy is brilliant, he has already helped me loads. I am new to all of this and although I have a good computing background this build has been quite hard for me (being a 47 year old woman in a wheelchair has nothing to do with it!!). Will has been really helpful with posts that I have put on and always seems to be on-line, although I am sure he must sleep sometime. The build instructions are fantastic and if you are not sure, you only re read and let it sink in and all becomes clear. I am so glad that Will took the time to do the instructions, they are fantastic and without those I would not have purchased the Shapeoko 2. So a massive thank you to Will and long may he be around :D :D :D

I thanked Will even before it was hip to do so. ;)

Seriously, good work, Will! The Wiki has grown tremendously since you started working on it.
