I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Thanks guys . This has been on my bucket list for a long time, and I’m happy that I’ve finally ordered one .
I would have liked to have a 4’x8’ , but I know it would have make my garage a nuisance to move around in .
So I think a 4x5 is the next best thing . Now I have a reason to get my butt in gear and get the garage ready for winter

So did you go with the plug and play electronics? John is an EXPERT at assembling one of these kits and I am sure he will be glad to assist!

Nope . They misunderstood me and gave me a quote for everything including the base.
I was actually impressed with the price , but how fun would that be ?
So ordered the Pro router table , including a 80mm mount with tramming plate, and the touch plate .
It won’t be unpacked until the garage is finished inside , so could be a couple more years yet. Just kidding I hope .

Btw I want to run UCCNC instead of Mach , so I’d sooner build the cabinet myself with a UCCNC motion controller

Should be a piece of cake for you since there's no stand.

Print the instructions out (all that apply to what you got) and put them in a 3 ring binder. They are quite good and fairly easy to follow. You got my phone number. And I'm no expert at anything involving this CNC stuff. Dave lies!!!!

There’s actually a few assembly videos online also . I’m not great with manuals and prefer videos .
All kidding aside , I’ll probably use both .
When I assemble the electronics in the cabinet , I’m sure I’ll have a few questions for the gurus here .

I may be working for a contractor part time after my final shift on August 16th. I wish I could take a year off and just get everything cleared up at home , but may have to make hay while the sun shines .
But working part time and having a cnc gig at home would be a good deal if I could swing it .
