    Not the best photo I know. But she's ugly and I didn't want to break me camera even more. Had me a sticky x axis, turns out that my base was slightly bowed. Will make a table for it to have all straight and on the level. Yes it cuts and more than cake.

    Well it certainly ain't pretty....but looks like it cuts and if it does what you want it to do then fair play to you

    OK so over the weekend, I had my mate (kids in tow) come round and we tinkered with the CNC mockups.
    Well its good that the kids are leaning something instead of watching telly and it isn't costing too much. It will be interesting to see how you evolve it.

    Thank you bro!

    She so UGLY the bag i put over it up and ran away, leaving me a note stating it was cruel and unusual punishment.
    I had to agree!

    She's going to get upgraded slowly.
    Then i'm going to refine a few parts, re cost and send a kit version to my friend in Scotland.

    If that goes together and works out the box then i'll think about offering to others.
    But they won't be ugly things like this is now.

    Shes that ugly due to she costing 100

    Surely that spindle and mount alone cost more than 100? You've not convinced me to buy one just yet, but you have it moving which is more than I can say for mine which has not been cheap or easy!!
