I am 41 and have been doing machining for about 25 years. I now teach a CNC class called Rapid Prototyping for designers at the local university. I have a small home shop with the standard manual machines. My interest here is 2 part. I would like to build a small development platform for my own shop where I can play around with different head types (laser, router, extrusion head ECTů) I would also like to develop a course for my students so they can also build a low cost router based machines for their own projects. I found this site and it looks to have some of the best how to posting I have seen. I hope I can contribute some small amount to the group as well.
