I've decided to jump into the wagon and build my CNC. I decided to make a design inspired by Jason Beam's CNC which I believe is inspired by Joe 2006 CNC. This is my plan. 2'x4' footprint. I should have a cutting area of 20"x36" Today I received most of my parts I think I went a bit overboard with the size of the aluminum I purchased. These beams are huge. Specially the one that I will use for the X beam. 7/16" back wall. And heavy too. I hope the motors can move that thing Purchased the aluminum from onlinemetals.com. Great people and fast service. Got the Gecko G540 drive kit including the 320oz low inductance 3/8 shaft motors, 48v power supply. Bought from CNCRouterParts.com Also got my McMaster order of acme 5 start leadscrew and T-Slot tracks Still have to wait for the linear bearing from the far east. So I know what I will do for the remaining of the spring/summer. I will assemble all of this. I'm overwhelmed by the task at hand, so I will take it slowly and think every step many times over before proceeding.
