Hi all.

Im in the process of building my first CNC machine.
Its a Proxxon MF70 with Nema17's, USB interface and Mach3 compatible.
When building this Im getting other ideas of modifications and perhaps even buiding one from scratch.
This is great fun!

So you like milling machines rather than routers ? or do you plan to build a router style machine ?

Hi Eddy.

Been looking thru the forums and seen many nice builds. Im guessing router style are those big, table like designs? If so. Yes.
But for now Im ok with a milling machine since the parts Im trying to create are no bigger then 70mm.
Im finding myself wanting to change a lot on this MF70. I want a brushless spindle with ER11. I also want to make the Z Axis about 10cm taller to get more room.
Also thinking about a 4th axis with a chuck.... so many ideas it feels a bit silly not building it from scratch but its a great chance to learn! The MF70 is cute too :)
