DIY CNC router comes alive!

These days, homebrew CNC machines seem to be losing popularity to 3d printers. These are all well and good, however there are situations where you really need a part made of solid metal or wood, and for those there is no substitute to a good ol’ CNC machine. So, it’s nice to see that Jonny D is making progress on his homebrew CNC router. After getting a sweet deal on a suitable mechanical frame and stepper motors, he has managed to get his version up and running, and has successfully used it to engrave wood and drill PCBs. He’s still working on improving the system, however this early success should be a great motivator to get everything finished up. Excellent work!
