Build a CNC hobby machine with LocalAd
The so-called Maker Revolution changed the landscape of tooling for the home hobbyist and small business. 3D printers are one key part of the movement, but besides the alluring appeal of precision deposited plastic, a thirst for easy to build and use CNC machines also emerged.
Follow this forum as we build and encourage builders to contribute to designs ans mods. We will look at the current products and prices, build some units and redesign from plans.
The end goal is to offer a cost effective hobby cnc router to our community for the best price and to bring more people into the computer control enviroment.
Objective: Develop a rock solid Hobby CNC without parts from CHINA!
This is the Review process, Localad.com will post the progress on our projects.localad.com page
1 first review MADE IN CHINA belt drive (we can do way better than this)
RS4040 mini CNC
Our second look is MPCNC. This is a solid build, they say under 500 but we built 1 and the cost gets up there by the time your cutting. There are some improved versions and V1 it appears is making some updates. This is a solid build, because we have 1 we will cover this build
This looks pretty interesting
