Progress....sort of progress. 06/25/2010
My dad has been interested in the CNC machine since I decided to build one. Hes always lent a helping hand when I was working on mine so it comes at no surprise that he decided to build his own. Whats amazing is that he built the whole table in a matter of two days. With that said Ive donated my hardware to him since hes ready to get cutting and Im not. In return hes agreed to replace my hardware when the time comes to finish my build. I spent a couple hours helping him mount the motors and hook up the stepper drivers. One of the motors I had is missing a connector so hes working on figuring that out but it shouldnt take him long. And now for your viewing pleasure, here is a video of the first motion of his machine.
