Hi All,

Thought I'd better introduce myself as no doubt you'll be seeing me around :)

I'm currently waiting for my first build's parts to turn up from all over the place! I'm going to build a RawCNC (see also CNCMaskiner.org and use the translate button) which I reckon is the best hobby grade CNC available - certainly for the money!

My build list is as follows:

Roughly 1m2 machine with a 700x800 cutting area.
2.2kw Spindle +VFD
Steel Plates over the standard Aluminium
4.2a Nema23 Motors + Breakout Board + 542 Drivers
Rack and Pinion Drive for X&Y Axis
Z-Axis Raised by 60mm

I'm planning on prototyping and also manufacturing various projects using a range of materials like Aluminium, Wood, Fibreglass Sheet and Acrylic.

I'll no doubt have plenty of questions so please be kind :) And any thoughts are always welcome!
