Now we hurry up and wait. 02/25/2010
Latest news in my quest to finish up the CNC is that I've placed the order for the PCBs. I had to order 21 of them to meet the minimum order but Id rather have done that than to have paid 70 bucks for just 4 of them. It turned out to be close to 140 shipped with a 2 week turn around. I figure I can put a couple up for sale on ebay and connect with people looking to build their own RepRap. In my opinion its cool what the RepRap team is doing but its abit unstructured. For the average builder, not being able to acquire the stepper drivers or the bare PCBs to make them would be a dead end. Especially if they looked around and found out how much it would cost to have them made.
Head on over to Edward Fords page and check out his project CNC. Ill be looking into the software side of what he has dug up when I start pulling my electronics together and testing them.
