Thanks for the replies all . Dave I'm very comfortable building one , and don't want a complete machine . I really like Nates video ,as I prefer that to instructions.
CNCrouterparts is going to be less shipping wise I suspect , as FLA is a lot further east .
I thought where the gantry rolls on the sides of the rails looked much heavy dutier than the pro model from CNCrouterparts ?
But I have seen a post where the guys bearing were digging into the side steel plate .
I'll have to try and find Scott Arts pics of his build again to compare the gantries .
I realize the kit is just the beginning, but I thought I'd do this in steps . Build a stand , build the hardware , then as money permits , add the electronics and air cooled spindle.
I know if I don't get the ball rolling and do this in steps , that I will never own one
My grade four teacher told me he thought I was an idiot savant , minus the savant part
