    A new CNC build.

    Been working up to this for a while. Pulling the trigger.

    The machine will be based on the Computer Router Parts machine.

    I have an email out to them with the first of a bazillion questions.

    I saw the real thing last Monday. Was very impressed. Today I went to OSML, a very interesting resource. It is a very well equipped lab for building stuff. Darren and Brent, you guys would need bibs for the drool!

    Now I have a place to build it, plus tools I don't have and expertise in all sorts of areas I will need.

    Also, found a local supplier for 8020 extrusions. I already have a great fasteners supplier, so hopefully I can save some money with an adulterated kit. At least on shipping.

    I plan on a water cooled spindle as opposed to a router. Todd, from last Monday, showed me his and it is amazingly quiet.

    So why? Found sufficient justification! I have a couple of products in mind that I think will do well. I will use it in building the house with all the special systems I have in mind for that. It will also have a Z-axis with a plasma torch on it and a removable water table. And a rotary indexer for the products I have in mind. And last, but certainly not least, I want one!

    I started a Build Journal and blabbed to you all, so you can keep me honest!

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Looking forward to this build Carol, had looked at some of their parts before and had considered buying them before going with the bearings I already had.

    Carol
    This company (person) has some parts and kits very similar to the CNC Router Parts Guy.

    I am not sure what the relationship is between Nate and Aron now. And not sure if the rails and such are the same size exactly. I think at one time Nate was buying the lenear rail bearings from Aron and building the rest of the machine. May be worth taking a look. Nate at Fine Line Automation has had some delivery problems in the past not sure what his reputation is currently. Another option for the same type machine..
