Hi Mr. McGuire,

I plan to build an Arduino shield based on your stepper motor driver. Can you please share your schematic .sch and .brd files ?

Awesome project mr. Mcguire...
i am from Guatemala city (Central America) I wish someday build a 4x8 feet cnc with a friend but here is some hard to get the information and materials... but would be a great idea import the motors and drivers from USA. we are looking for information because due to language is some hard to find projects like CNC in spanish pages i appreciate your help. greetings from Guatemala

could you use drawer slides as opposed to the bearing setup. I've got the pipe frame built and trying to keep this very low budget.
You can get bearings from bike shops for 50 cents each. This will be much much cheaper than drawer slides.
Does anyone have a parts list for this project

Great job with your CNC machine... I have a few questions though...

Will it cut through ply wood (and what sizes)?
What is largest size it can cut?
About how much did it cost (including motors, and controller)?
Where did you get the components?

Hi Tom!. Congratulations for your machine!. I`d like to ask you if your machine can be used to make PCB boards or it`s only for milling stuff. Thanks Have a great week! Kilo
