    Hi all...

    Have spent a huge amount of time rooting through USA websites, all research for building my own first CNC router.. Have now settled on a design which is cheap (MDF and ally) http://buildyourcnc.com/assemblyv12.aspx

    Loved watching this guy build the whole thing in his front room! Have come up with many mods to this design as mine needs to be 6' x 4' workable area and so rigidity will be an issue.

    This will be my first excursion into CNC and after making the first one, I will try to make a better quality 5 axis machine capable of turning as well as milling. I have a legacy ornamental mill (very frustrating machine) which I suspect will be a source of man parts I will need..

    I have practiced assuming the begging position as it will be the sourcing of motors, controllers and software etc that I think will be my hurdles, hope you will all be patient with my many amateur-like questions about these things..!

    Also the dust from MDF is known to give you cancer.
    So when you cut it wear a mask.
