I’ve been enjoying this build so much that I’m hesitant to do the crown test because that will mean it’s finished. Thanks so much Ryan for making this so easy and affordable.
It’s primary purpose was intended to cut RC airplane parts but my wife has been watching a lot of CNC videos lately so it will almost certainly be used much more than I anticipated.
I built it for a 36"x18"x4" print bed using common 3/4" electrical conduit. It’s mounted on 3/4" oak plywood left over from the bar I build in our home remodel. Wiring was all replaced with CAT6 patch cables using standard Keystone jacks in custom designed receivers.
(see RJ45 Keystone Receiver)
Cables are captured in 1/2" sleeving and reinforced with sections cut from a cheap Harbor Freight measuring tape.
