Hey all my Mod Zoo Monkey Bros!!! I wanted to start my CNC thread, even though I didn't start the build yet, I sure am anxious!! =D I am going to be building a DIY CNC using the blue prints from CNCRouterParts PRO 4 foot by 2 foot CNC. I decided on the 4 by 2 because in the future when I get my own shop built It will be easy to extend the x axis, and I will most likely take the build to a 4'x8' but that's a couple years away. As I said I will using the blueprint for their build but shopping around online for any parts I can find cheaper. The kit for the build without the electronics on their site is almost 2800$ and I am expecting to build the entire CNC for less than that. The time it will take to build will depend on if I can sell my Grey Matter PC to fund this or if I will have to go pay check to pay check until its done. The longest it should take is about 2 months ( hopefully ). The first part I am going to be building is the base frame of the CNC. Ill post a parts list, where I bought the parts, and how much they cost. I will do that for each section I build. Basically I am saving money by getting the aluminum, the steel, the hardware, the electronics, and the water cooled spindle from other locations. Ill be using the rack and pinion, brackets, carriages, and pre-built Z-Axis from CNCRouterParts. Today is the 29th of January and Ill be ordering the first parts this Friday the 31st of January! Hope I can help shed some light on CNC's to other who are thinking of building or buying one, and maybe I can provide a helpful work log to show you my process. Well thats all for now, I shall be back with some parts, pictures, and prices!! Stay Tuned! Quick Links to Build Updates: Update : 1 : Starting the Base Update : 2 : Assembling the Table Support.
