    Open Builds OX CNC - My Build - The OX has Landed!

    Figure I might as well start up a build thread. The OX is supposed to get here on Friday.

    So, I've started get a few necessary accessory items.

    First up is a PC dedicated for the CNC. My old shop PC was a cast off laptop from work. I had installed Ubuntu on it, but it was really performing pretty badly. Rather than try and install windows on it and then be unhappy still with it's performance, I went to Newegg and found a refurbished lease return. It's got an Intel i5 2.5Gz processor, 8gb ram, and a 120gb SSD with Win 7 pro 64 bit preinstalled. Gotta say, it was a pretty good deal for ~250$.

    I also ordered a few dual T-track rails and some hold downs. I really like the way that Jason has the 'big X' on his machine and I figure if it's good enough for Jason, it's good enough for me. I'm going to inset the t-tracks into the base and add a replace-able spoil board on top of that.

    Oh, And have a little spray paint on hand for Aesthetics.

    Might be getting way ahead of myself, but this came via brown today.

    Should make a pretty good dust shroud, when I get the OX put together and ready to cut. The dust shroud will most likely be my first project.

    Looks to me like brown could do with a direct flight drone to drop off all your shipments lately. Heck you must be on more than first name terms with the brown driver. You must be beer drinking buddies by now. LOL I cannot help but think of dear Sharon in the background to all this. Feels like one of those road trips where the kids say are we there yet. Except my version is has brown arrived yet. Wanna see this OX in all its glory. I like the name OX. I think you need Charlie to get you a pair of Texas long horns for a cnc with a name like OX.
    cheers
