You are totally correct. I have a pile of parts for various upgrades sitting on my workbench waiting for the current batch of projects to get done on the machine. And I still need to make an electronics enclosure.

I'm not sure how I every got anything done without my ShapeOko. :)

There are some bits from 1465 in there, I promise.

It's finished, wired up and moving. Working on the cooling/lubricant dispenser which is essentially finished. Calibration and first cuts this weekend, then on to aluminum.

Kinda got it back together, though I doubt that it will ever be finished. I think I am somewhere between revision 1245.3 and "honey I swear to God this is the last part I need". I still need to finish the cable drag mount, top cross carriage support and a few little odds and ends.

Aside from the extrusions, my spindle and my spindle mount all of the upgrade parts on my machine were made with my machine. And that is pretty sweet.

That's a really slick set-up Danimal. So many other awesome builds out there, too.
Mine is mostly stock, but I'm planning to expand the axes someday. For now the stock size is keeping me entertained. Here's a pic from the last time I had a clean-ish bench.

DW611, arduino uno, gshield v5, NEMA23's on X & dual Y, NEMA17 on Z with ACME rod, 9mm belts, Mean Well NES-350-24V power supply, re-inforced gantry rails.
Soon to have inventables spindle mount and 1M X axis.

Here's a couple shots of my mostly stock machine. Only upgrades at the moment are the DW660 and IC's dust shoe but I do have IC's acme upgrade waiting to be installed. Since I live in a condo/apartment I had to build an enclosure so I don't bother the neighbors too much. Can't wait to get back into a house so I won't have to worry about bother the neighbors with the noise.

Danimal or Little Hands, I noticed your machines in particular are double X axis and stock Y axis length. Any tips? Did you fasten the two rails together? How? Would a single piece of 40x40 extrusion with OpenRail be worth the extra cost?

I did fasten them together, and I covered how I did it on the bottom of the first page of my build log. It made a world of difference in the rigidity of my machine near the center of travel. I chose to double my X axis length because it gives me the most access to the work area. I chose the double makerslide because it was a cheaper solution and the open rail was back-ordered everywhere when I was building. I think it is a wash as far as rigidity because the open rail will flex more (even when fastened really close together) than the built in rails on makersilde. But the 40x40 will be more rigid. In the end the real determining factor that affects rigity is the v-wheels. They will completely mask any difference between the two.
