Hi from another complete newbie from New Zealand. After researching various forums I decided on buying the V1 LowRider V2 CNC kit.
As I said in the intro I am a complete newbie with no experience of any kind on CNC machinery and very basic computer experience, so I will have to frequent the forum for help very regular.
To kick of: (For your input and advice please)
I am a enthusiastic RC hobbyist that builds both balsa and foam model planes and felt that the LR2 was the correct choice. (hope so)
I want to use the router option for cutting balsa and thin hobby plywood as well as foam(with needle cutter) parts from plans. Usually .PDF and .DXF files. I am unsure about the size of routers and had a look at what’s available:
- Makita M3700 Trim Router Specifications
|No load speed|35,000rpm|
|Continuous rating input|580W|
|Power supply cord|2.0m|
- Ryobi RTR400-S 400W Trim Router
- Ozito 850W Router
Makita 530W Laminate Trimmer 6.35mm
Only the Ozito has variable speed but limited options to fit to the LR2.
I wanted to get the Rambo Mini board but it is sold out and only the SKR Pro1.2, 5x 2209 drivers, TFT35 E3 V3 is still available. Should I wait till the Rambo Mini is back in stock or will the SKR PRO suit my requirements?
I will also use it to cut vinyl decals and coverings for the models and even draw paint insignia with paint pens.
Sorry for the long winded approach but I would appreciate all the input and advice I can get.
