    I've got to grips with the spreadsheet now and I'm tending to return to the L gantry but I'm trying various combinations of sizes to find the optimum strength/weigh/cost ratio although cost is secondary but still important.

    After that trip into outer space I'm back on earth and it looks like the L gantry is going to be the way forward. You would think I was building an electron microscope, it's only going to have a bed 900x600 but I realise it has to be stiff. Currently drawing up the whole machine for comments but getting the Z axis right might take a day or 2 as I want to keep overhang to a minimum.

    Wise Choice, really couldn't under stand the need to re-invent the wheel.? . . . KIS approach is all that's needed for wood router. Better investing your efforts into quality components than wasting time and money trying new approach when proven designs work fine.
