Stumbled upon self build cnc machines by accident & it got me intrigued & would like to attempt to build my own mainly for decorative arty stuff.
I work in the coachbuilding industry mostly as a fabricator / welder so metal working has always interested me.
This also gives me good access to useful materials @ minimal cost or usually for free.
At the moment i have the linear rails sorted almost big enuff for a 1000 x 1000 machine bed which i hope to make from aluminum I section.
I am now looking for info on stepper motors & leadscrews to suit a large table area mostly machining wood, plastics & possible some light aluminium work.
Any help will be greatly appreciated & im sure i will have many questions along the way
Cheers for reading
Hopefully speak to ya's soon
