    Hi

    I think if your building your first router buy and read published plans it will be much easier even if you dont follow them. I built my first using solsylva plans. Solsylva CNC Plans~ Home Page The second one was built from open source but the plans gave me so much step by step help I had learnt loads by then and was more than ready. I know there are many others you should look for reviews. There are many shortcuts such as buying whole pre-manufactured axis's (such as the Z axis) which to be honest really speeds things up and gives much better results but of course they all add cost. Good luck

    Hi guys this is all brilliant info and I will defo consider the pre made z axis but I don't think there are plans available for a vertical cnc, it's a suck it and see sort of project but with the help of the forum I'm sure it's doable just got to go through the motions! Jazzcnc thanks a lot your frame design looks a lot better and more practical to build. I will have to try and remember heat does effect the material! A combination of welds and bolts is the answer I guess!
