Just realized that you were asking for the maximum size of stock I can machine, not for the working area of the router. So to answer your question - it's 1100 (or unlimited :-) x 610 x 50mm.Thanks!
Thank you Sir! Max dimensions are 50x480x800mm. Actually the length can be unlimited if using the method described in my other instructable :-)I do lots of V carving mostly in Plexiglas. Check out my other instructable for my latest project!
Thank you! I use mach3
1. You're not welding flat bars but square profiles which will resist warping much more 2. on the video the author said that the warping rate is "greatly exaggerated" 3. My frame is far from square (I haven't attempted to correct them ) and it's still running smoothly because the sides are parallel 4. Every welder will tell you that one of the ways to avoid (excessive) warping is to weld a bit at a time. The longer you spend welding in one spot the more the heat builds up. 5. Even if you do weld the pieces out of square, this design allows you to make adjustments to get everything running smoothly (eg. By shimming or grinding) So please don't discredit all welded steel router builds so quickly.
I agree that the steel distorts but there are ways around it, like weld a bit at a time, in different locations to avoid heat build up. This is not a welding basics instructable so I didn't go through that.
Thank you, make sure to post the photos!

Yes, they were one of the first things to cut on my diy router (As you can see) - due to the lack of experience I used a wrong cutter and there is stepping visible on the sides.
Thank you! This way of engraving has many uses ☺

Thanks for a quick reply, I managed to upload your code, however I'm experiencing another problem. After wiring my lcd according to arduino, all I get on display are 2 rows of blocks (no characters) and no illumination. I checked the specification for my lcd here https://www.adafruit.com/datasheets/TC2004A-01.pdfAnd I can tell that the backlight pins are 15 and 16, whereas pin 15 on your diagram goes to arduino and does something else I presume. I assume that other pins will be different too. I'd appreciate it if you can help me out here, otherwise I'll just give up with this project.
Hi again, Ive been trying to upload your program to my Arduino and it keeps saying Arduino: 1.6.8 (Windows 7), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"C:\Users\Golomp\Desktop\mephisto_V\mephisto_V.ino:3:19: fatal error: Timer.h: No such file or directory #include "Timer.h" ^compilation terminated.exit status 1I installed some Time library but it hasnt resolved the issue. Also I see that you have included a #include <DFPlayer_Mini_Mp3.h> Library, where do I get it from?Sorry to be a pain, I'm not a programmer so I dont have a clue.Thanks!
Hi, I'm preparing to make this mp3 player, I have almost all needed parts. I'm just wondering how to connect my encoder as it seems to have a different pinout than yours. Here is the eBay auction number 181956049541Many thanks in advance.
