    It has just about everything that should be avoided when building a router.

    It would keep Dean (JAZZCNC) busy for a month ...Clive

    Hey! Where did you get the pic of my machine!?!..........Nah, just kidding, looks too solid to be my machine!

    To be fair though, without knowing what the builder intended it to cut, its hard to say if this is a success or steaming pile!

    Well that may be pushing it then!

    I must say though, I like the ingenuity of making it all from a single length of C shaped ali (or is that a length of ali box cut down the middle?). Appeals to my inner cheapskate. :oD

    Hey that's Still better machine than some Dicey Merchants sell. . .Lol

    Actually these types of build are good for learning CNC and I don't actually have problem with them when done on that basis and think it's good idea if they don't cost more than fish & chips twice.!! . . . . It's when folks expect them to cut stuff harder than foam it all goes tits up.

    Thanks for the link Jonathan.

    After looking at the guys site I got to say I'm impressed. He has built the whole thing on a shoestring budget, created his own circuit boards (stepper drivers, BOBs, Relay etc) and has listed it all for download, good man!

    Ahh yes, I almost posted that myself a few weeks ago. One of Marchant Dice's later models...

    They've used 'Doughty drive' gearboxes, so even if the frame wasn't comparable to elongated pasta, it still would only be (barely) acceptable for wood.
