CNC - my summer obsession

Haven't posted anything for awhile - I've been busy building a CNC machine based on this book: Build Your Own CNC Machine (see http://buildyourcnc.com/Book.aspx for more details). The book very thoroughly describes the building techniques necessary to get up and running using the plans in the book and the suggested electronics.

Here are the basic materials I used (exact electronics specified in the book):

Here are a few photos for now, maybe I'll post some video as I learn more (I'm a CNC n00b)....

 

Beta testing :)

All in all, I've spent around 500.00 on the electronics, about the same on everything else. It's been fun, the book is great with only a couple of small errors that I was able to work around.

More to follow...
